Although inherent strength of technology is to provide interactive representation of reality, much of Web-based engineering content material that I previewed is levelled down to the same approach of segmented and linear mode of delivery of passive learning material in ontological format found in traditional lecture presentation and texts. Design of learning in an eLearning mode must be articulated by defining the purpose and components of such learning as compared to workshop and classroom-based learning. I found it effective to think about technology as a suitable learning environment where process of learning can be interlaced with processes of authentic problem solving, This combination of learning, problem solving and technology empowers us with tools and methodology to develop critical skills for today's and tomorrow's engineers. I intent to exemplify our use of technology to conduct the Manufacturing Application for Precision Engineering at the ITE College West, Singapore.
