In the “Control by Computer Program” course taught at the Osaka Electro-Communication University, students are expected to master a control system that consists of actuators, sensors, and a computer interface. But in real-world control systems there are many interfaces — so many that students cannot recognize them easily. In this study, a new, more easily understood, physically separated and visualized interface has been developed by the authors. In addition, the authors have tested the new interface in the course and confirmed its usefulness.
