Often we visit existing TIMS users at their campus after they've had TIMS in their labs for a while and we are delighted to hear them say that "students really enjoy using TIMS" over other equipment available to them. We believe that the hands-on nature of TIMS which lets students take control of the experiment is one of the important factors behind such student's satisfaction. They love the fact that all modules are hot-swappable and fully protected.
"It's exactly what I need" is what we hear professors say once they've grasped how TIMS works and how TIMS can work for them in their telecommunications programs.

Teaching with TIMS
"... instructors can immediately demonstrate concepts in response to student questions. There is an immediate 'learning by doing' .... We have found the TIMS trainers to be very effective teaching tools with great versatility, particularly the fact that in-house modules can easily be developed and added ...."

"The most important feature of the TIMS system as a learning tool for students in telecommunications is the ability to construct a system with almost a one to one correspondence with the components of a system block diagram. Another useful learning feature is that many of the TIMS control settings must be carried out by the student using measurement techniques rather than a "push button" approach."
