Computer Aided Learning (CAL) Students understand difficult topics in an interesting manner through audio visual aids. These audio visual aids / images display the data and the mathematical relation of the topics for interpretation, especially for multi – dimensional cases. It effectively bridges the gap between active learning and passive learning.
