Multimedia Teaching Platform Design for Urban Planning Course Based on Information Entropy

Xiaopeng Jing


The information entropy theory involves such important concepts as the amount of information and information entropy, and it is widely applied in educational field. At present, teaching contents of Urban Planning are dull, and teaching methods and means are single. For such characteristics, information entropy theory and MP5 technology were introduced in multimedia teaching platform design. The new teaching platform was designed from 4 aspects: video module, audio module, network module and electronic module. Since information entropy theory can make information quantified, the teaching contents can be visualized, and teaching interestingness can improve. Meanwhile, because MP5 has such characteristics as diversified technological functions and use convenience, it can enhance multimedia teaching effect. The new teaching platform can let the teaching contents more vivid and visual, motivate students’ learning initiative and promote teaching quality.
