Engineering Statics at North Carolina State University is taught to both distance-education and on-campus sections simultaneously. Statics has been remodeled to include online and in-class tools to encourage all students to stay actively engaged with the material. Seven online tools which have been incorporated into the redesigned course are presented and discussed: review modules, reading introductions and quizzes, class notes with video example problems, recorded lectures, skills quizzes, synchronous office hours and asynchronous message boards, and clickers. Results indicate students come to class consistently, are more likely to complete readings, and appreciate the just-in-time online resources. One faculty member can now supervise larger numbers of students and homework grading has been cut in half.
