Teaching design techniques is an intensive knowledge based activity. There are three main different models involved: a matter model (their schemes are trespassed into the learning process), a model of the learning process and, finally, a model of the student. This work shows a methodological proposal for the application of this sort of techniques to a Computer Aided Design course for engineers. In this work, we describe the characteristics of the three knowledge models, detailing the high level elements of the matter model (Fundamentals of CAD), which were modeled using an extension of CommonKADS. Main conclusions include the convenience of modeling the design knowledge formally, previously to the deployment of a web design course.
