'Visualization of Time-Space Diagram and Shortest Path Finding Concept in Transportation Engineering
AbstractAn interactive web based courseware module is presented for two of the most fundamental transportation engineering topics: Time-Space diagrams and network Shortest Path routes. The learning module is designed following a concept-specific instructional format where each part partially meets the students learning goal as a whole. The e-module is intended to be delivered to the students with a level of interactivity that helps them to visualize the concept, understand the extent of the problem, interpret results and master the solution techniques for various self-generated problems. As a web-based module increases global access expands review and practice time. The interactive simulations, animation, and exercises engage students in self-paced experimentation with immediate feedback.
