    Abstract

    This article describes the use of a web-based course to enhance the learning of mathematical concepts and skills in a university Physics course. Both the coupling of a symbolic language (Maple) and adequate feedback enable to simulate in a computer program the way students should perform. The learning effect which is aimed for is to improve both concepts and skills. Moreover, this tool helps to correct possible misunderstandings or misconceptions.
    Web-based training was offered in an electromagnetism course. The training consists of several exercises which focus on applying complex mathematical skills in the field of electromagnetism, one at a time.
