Enhancing the learning experience of engineering students using learner-centered strategies

mobile devices
Conventional methods of teaching technical subjects have tended to be primarily teacher-centred, with students playing the role of a passive learner. Students are usually not participative or engaged in this method of learning and this result in them loosing interest in the topics as they cannot see the relevance of what they are learning with the real world and disengage from the learning process.
