Abstract

The importance of transferring the wind engineering research into curriculum and practice has been the focus of much attention in the recent past. Also, many Universities are exploring ways to enhance their existing curriculum for both on-campus students and distance education. With the emergence of software and computer hardware specifically designed for multimedia-based presentations and the constantly improving conditions for learning via the Internet, it is now possible to achieve these goals more effectively than ever before. In this paper, three separate efforts at Texas Tech University are described; integrating wind engineering research to the existing curriculum, developing a wind engineering course for distance education, and devising a method for fast dissemination of wind engineering research and curriculum, all involving different forms of electronic media.
