Growing accessibility to the World Wide Web (WWW) and development of dynamic, graphically oriented browsers has vast potential for dissemination of curricular materials and instructional resources within engineering. This presentation examines three case-studies relating to the use of WWW pages in biological engineering education. Each case adapts an engineering based approach to teaching underlying system principles and extends interactive, demonstration examples within the respective applications areas of biological engineering. Together these cases serve as the beginning for a larger discussion of the utility of the WWW in (1) classroom and laboratory student learning; (2) educational outreach to off-site educators, and (3) academic productivity through the use of student constructed pages.
