Automatic Concept Map Generation For Learning Engineering Mechanics
Many engineering students face difficulties with engineering mechanics which is a foundation for many
engineering disciplines. The traditional teaching methods are to be made more effective in learning of mechanics concepts.
Student understanding of engineering mechanics concepts is usually done in a visual way. In this paper, a new way of
learning the engineering mechanics is proposed by providing a web based application. The application will generate the
concept map automatically for the desired topic. Discovery learning environment is created which enables the students to
navigate through the concept map of the topic by clicking the appropriate nodes and links.
