The goal of this project was to create an on online tutorial for a cam-design program called Dynacam. Research determined that students had difficulty navigating the program and understanding how to translate problem statements into design parameters; this tutorial guides the students through this process. The tutorial was created using web-authoring software and animation software. In total, seven animations were created to guide students through specific areas of Dynacam. The project resulted in students being able to learn the program without help from their instructor as well as begin to understand the principles of cam design.
