Abstract

The usage of technology in the 21" century has lead into many innovations in the educational area. As we can see, from the elementary education to the university's level, there are many innovations with technology usage that needed to be aligned with the educational background. These technologies are used to help improve the student's knowledge in their learning environment. There is variety of Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) that have been developed and used but unfortunately; there have not been many products that implements the educational theories according to the needs of users. This project is about implementing a tutoring system in engine subject, where it could help the students to understand better on how an engine works as well being a side-guide tutor. The guided notes that is provided in the tutoring system is aligned with the syllabus of Kemahiran Hidup Bersepadu (Living Skills) in Form 3. Also, there are a few simulation graphics of engine to help students learn on how the engine process is carried out. On the other hand, it includes an assessment where a quiz is provided in order to help students have a better understanding of an engine. Furthermore, the students can share their knowledge by signing up in guestbook, so they can communicate with others to share their knowledge. By learning the theories in classrooms, it will block the student's perception as how an engine works and cannot relate to the real world. With the Dreamweaver UltraDev as an editing tool, this tutoring system uses image maps and links as a dynamic process to attract the student's attention in learning engine. The main objective is to help the students to have a better krnowledge about engine system.
