Title - Electude
Automotive Technology - Electude
Electude is a simulation-based e-learning automotive training solution. It allows students to learn about the complete vehicle, from bumper to bumper, and teaches them how to maintain and repair cars with interactive animations and simulations.
  • 500+ modules today
  • 2-3 new modules are added each week
  • 4 Learning Levels: Level 1 (Beginners) to Level 4 (Diagnostic Specialists)

What are Modules

The content in Electude appears in modules. A module can contain a theory lesson but it could also include an educational computer simulation, a test, an interesting link or even a task sheet which you have developed. In short, modules contain all of the elements which make up part of the curriculum. Multiple modules grouped together for a teaching objective are called a course.

Electude has been created with the perspective that teachers, lecturers and trainers should be able to make their own courses. For this they have at their disposal the hundreds of "ready-made" Electude modules which can compliment their own material or that of colleagues. These can easily be added to Electude.

Electude - Game Based Automotive Technology Training
Types of Modules

Lessons
The lesson modules are theory content units which have been developed by Electude. These have been created by game designers based on the educational principle of guided self-discovery. It is our belief that self-obtained knowledge gives a deeper insight and is more effective for retention. This means that we aim to provide an environment in which a student can discover operational principles. With small interactive tasks, Argo guides the students step-by-step through the discovery process.

Tailor-made Lessons
On special request, Electude will develop special tailor-made lessons which are added to the basic curriculum. Customers who have made use of this service include Mercedes Benz, Nissan and DAF.

DIY Lessons
With the DIY (Do-It-Yourself) lessons, teachers, lecturers and trainers are able to make their own lessons and add them to the Argo modules. These DIY modules could be theory lessons similar to those found in Electude; but, other options for the DIY modules could be tests, task sheets or interesting links with or without accompanying text. It is completely up to the author of the DIY module. These DIY lessons will only be accessible for the author's educational or training institute. For students or trainees, there is no visible difference between the "ready-made" Electude modules and the DIY modules.


Electude Simulator - Engine Management

The Simulator modules are part of the engine management simulator of Electude. It is an application which visually simulates the behavior of a engine management system through the use of highly accurate algorithms. With the aid of an oscilloscope, multimeter and other tools, a user can carry out countless actions in this virtual engine management system. Quite simply, a user can do everything they could do on a real engine.

This Simulator is equipped with same sample student tasks which have been added as modules. These tasks are related to fault finding. Instructors are able to create thousands of fault-finding combinations by assigning the faults, making descriptions and even determining which tools can be used. These can vary enormously from Level 1, a wet spark plug or an empty tank, to Level 2 where, through the various fault codes, a defective sensor or actuator needs to be found. A Level 4 example is when an erroneous fault code points to the wrong component and the student must think through the problem logically to discover the real solution.
