Preface: Getting Help with ROBOLAB
ROBOLAB is a growing application for which users canreceive support in many different ways. Embedded in ROBOLAB are context help and extended help information and examples. A PDF is available on the ROBOLAB CD that focuses on teaching readers how to use different components of the software. Several books have been written that focus on tips and tricks for using ROBOLAB and LEGO bricks and accompanying activities for use with students. These booksinclude Physics by Design by Barbara Bratzel (http://www.collegehousebooks.com/physics_by_design.htm) and Engineering with LEGO Bricks and ROBOLAB by Eric L. Wang (http://www.collegehousebooks.com/lego_bricks.htm). Carnegie Mellon’s Robotic Institute has developed additional support. Their “NXT Mobile Robotics Curriculum” and “NXT Engineering Projects Curriculum” is available at from your LEGOEducation distributor. The web also serves as a means of finding information, new capabilities, suggested ways to use the software, classroom curriculum, and additional tutorials on using ROBOLAB. The web component is a continually growing environment where we update and add new material and sample curriculum all the time. This guide is designed to serve as an extended reference resource for theROBOLAB software. It aims to supplement the other support and help components that already exist. With nearly 300 pages of information, the ROBOLAB Reference Guide is best used as an interactive electronic document from which pages or sections can be printed if needed. The Guide is a dynamic project, continually growing and being updated. The most current version is available for download atwww.legoengineering.com.

When programming in Inventor or higher levelsof Investigator, context help is also available for each of the icons. This help that comes up describes the functionality of the command, default settings, and the elements of it that can be modified. In ROBOLAB 2.5 and higher, the ‘Click here for more help’ link appears in the Context Help window.
