To enrich the teaching and learning of a module called, Numerical Methods for Engineering, an eLearning system has been devised using the computer algebra system, Mathematica. The system enables students to practice and study short exercises, homework tasks and major assignments, and, complete and submit them for assessment electronically within the Mathematica package. Use is also made of the course management system, Moodle.
