Abstract—Three-dimensional or 3D animation could increase
students’ learning especially in grasping difficult subject such
as engineering subject. Unlike other subjects, implementation of
engineering subject is a challenge. One of the problems is the
need to provide learners with lab practice and hands-on work.
Lab practice and hands-on work are essential in engineering
learning as it enables students to look and hold engine parts and
to feel its weight and texture and how it's been assembled with
smaller parts. It is believed the usage of 3D animation would be
one of a solution to solve the problem. This preliminary study
investigates the usefulness of instructional 3D animation as a
learning aid in an electrical engineering course. A
cross-sectional survey method has been used as a research
design for this pilot study. The study involves 34 students from
an engineering course. It has been discovered that majority of
the students strongly agree and agree the usage of 3d animation
should be included as a learning component in engineering
Index Terms—Three-dimensional animation, engineering subject, learning.
