[EN] We present a new virtual laboratory developed with MatlabcGUI (Graphical User Interface) used toteach di erent aberration eff ects in the "Tecnologi a de Sensores Optoelectr onicos" at "Escuela T ecnicaSuperior de Ingenier a del Diseño" of the Universitat Polit ecnica de Val encia. The objective of this lab is to provide a computer tool to study the working principle of a Shack Hartman sensor and the parameters that determine the dynamic range of the same. Some examples made with di fferent aberrations (defocus,astigmatism, coma) and for diff erent sensor con gurations are presented.

[EN] Nowadays, the European Higher Education Area means an important change in the teaching/learning process: it is necessary to involve more re ciently to the students as well as to promote their independenceand active participation. This new framework includes the increase in the development and use of NewInformation and Communication Technology in education and the analysis of the academic performance of students. In this paper, it is described the implementation and development of a new learning environmentfor Power Electronics. To evaluate the bene fits and drawbacks of this new environment and the compliance with the objectives, several surveys have been...

[EN] It has been used in the same class time: a lecture and a remote laboratory for reciprocating engine prac-tices. In both cases, we have made use of video cameras to visualize real-time facilities. The lecture has been used to describe the test bench and the remote laboratory has been used to measure performances ofa spark ignition engine. This methodology is intended to solve the problem of overcrowding of students in the labs, mainly when the number of jobs for them is very low

[EN] This paper presents the design of two experiences to introduce modelling of physical phe-nomena through modelling tasks using iPadR's. Each of the proposals is designed with adi erent vision about modelling. In one case modelling is used as a vehicle to introduceprecise mathematical contents. While, on the other one, we intend to develop an activitythat can help student to improve their modelling competence. Our aim is to present twoproposals to introduce modelling in a ninth or tenth grade classroom

[EN] The theory of curves in the plane and in the space is a fundamental part in the formation in geometry of afuture engineer, architect, physicist or mathematician. We present here an interactive virtual laboratory developed to visualize the most important properties of curves: Frenet trihedron, curvature, torsion, etc. with the aim of students acquiring and strengthening their knowledge on the subject more quickly

[EN] We present an example of how we can introduce basic concepts on Linear Algebra in a
first course of an Engineering School. We use the RGB pattern color which allows us
to decompose a color into three primary colors (namely, red, green, blue). By using this
model we give a natural connexion between the additivity of the color decomposition and
the notions on linear algebra (as vector space, linear combination and convex linear span
of vectors). To visualize these connexions we use Geogebra.
