The undergraduate robotics courses at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) present a unique challenge in that they are the first of their kind. There is therefore no appropriate textbook that specifically addresses the material taught in the Unified Robotics I: Actuation (RBE 2001) class at WPI. When the idea to develop a virtual study aid for this class arose, the question that was asked was: “In the development and implementation of a virtual study aid, specific to the content of RBE 2001; ­­what would be the most effective method of presenting the material?” This study will seek to answer this question, and complete the steps to creating a virtual study aid.
