Until 3 years ago, the only teaching aids in curriculum were blackboard, drafting triangles and compass. Assignments were made by technical fountain pen on tracing paper. Since, a lot of changes were introduced: exercises in computer lab; assignments in AutoCAD® published on students' own web pages; e-book made free downloadable at web-site created as a support to the Chair; lectures on 2D/3D CAD systems and principles held using LCD projector for demonstrating exercises and making assignments, and displaying virtual simulations. Problems that appeared were numerous. The results of exams shown that applied IT helped in easier coping with curriculum, developing space perception, encouraging creativity and enhancement of informatics literacy.
