We have developed amechatronics education program using line tracing robots controlled by microcomputers. Each studentmakes a robot, including essential elements of the robot system. Through this curriculum, students acquire knowledge, skills, and techniques of mechatronics systems through actual experience. We have also developed a system to aid the work of Teaching Assistants (TAs). We have evaluated and improved the work of TAs'.
