A key factor in Graphic Expression teaching is the previous knowledge acquired on high-school studies. The Spanish education system has created a high degree of uncertainty due to the legislative reforms that have established different educational pathways for university access. Those successive reforms have affected the previous knowledge of the Engineering students. In relation to Graphic Expression, a lack of the fundamental geometrical knowledge applies most specifically to those students who have not studied technical drawing in their previous educational stage. For this reason, the implementation of an interactive and self-learning tool has a great interest to solve this problem. The aim of this work was to design and implement a learning environment based on modern techniques (gamification, flipped classroom, etc.) and computer-aided design and digital publishing tools.
