Animation Snippets

Our e-learning portal is about high-quality learning experience. In order to deliver that experience, we have used animations that can explain highly complex technical content for students, teachers and consumers alike.

Wind power capacitiesWind power capacities

For examples,these animation snippets in our examples page:

  1. provides details about different types of biomass,
  2. provide details how biomass can be used to generate renewable energy such electricity and heat and what are the different processes used for such renewable energy production,
  3. show how geothermal heat is used for heating water using a geothermal heat pump,
  4. provide details about sources for biofuel with one important application as transportation fuel,
  5. display the energy content of two different biofuel types such as biodiesel and bioethanol,
  6. show how does a solar thermal system work for a residential home and and what are its uses at homes,
  7. show the ideal situation for harnessing solar photo-voltaic (PV) technology; PV panels must be directed perpendicular to the solar rays on a clear sunny day,
  8. how a hydro power plant demonstrates the conversion of potential energy of water to electricity with intermediate forms of energy such as kinetic and rotational kinetic energy of turbines,
  9. How wind power provides electricity to homes, schools and businesses.

2D and 3D Graphics Content - Samples

We have used both 2D and 3D Graphics to explain some engineering concepts or show equipment that are used in the trades (for example, turbines). We have also presented science experiments.

Glossary - Samples

We have used glossary for better understanding of the content. The glossaries are animation based; and are an essential part of our e-learning portal.

Bioethanol structure

 Lignocellulosic biomass

Characteristics of wind

Composition of earth

Summer solstice calculation

Overview - Samples

We have also used animation based Overviews – a brief explanation of different types of energy and its uses.
