InBookModE: An Interactive Book and Model Environment to Link BIM and AEC Education

Abstract : Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools have become a knowledge resource in the Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC) sector. While effective BIM use requires knowledge and skills with the tools, BIM tools can also become a good source of learning about the core domain area e.g. architecture, engineering, etc. However, effective teaching and learning of BIM and core domain knowledge is challenging, especially when BIM tools are becoming specialized and complex. So how do we train and skill people both in the use and potential of technology, as well as in their core domain knowledge? To address this challenge, we propose a learning platform, InBookModE (Interactive Book and Model Environment), that integrates acquisition of BIM knowledge with domain knowledge. The main objectives of the proposed approach are to (1) Implement and test the efficacy of an interactive learning platform that integrates the BIM tools with the information encoded in textbooks (2) Combine the interactivity and usability of ebooks with BIM applications to enhance wider adoption and learning, and (3) Create the basis for a long-term goal of a digital repository of interactive BIM case studies. This paper introduces the key ideas and concepts behind the InBookModE, with a brief discussion on the current status of the project and the findings so far.
