Abstract

Thermodynamics is an abstract course that is notorious for its difficulty among engineering students. Thus a thermodynamic courseware was designed and developed using constructivist learning principles and visualization characteristics in order to help students visualize the abstract concepts. Students' performance and confidence in learning a particular course is related. This paper focuses on the analysis of the confidence level of students in learning thermodynamics before and after using the courseware. The finding shows that the confidence level of the students in learning thermodynamics improved after using the courseware.
