To handle the challenges of shortened product life cycles and rising global competition, engineers need to innovate. To do so, they can be assisted by design methods which most engineers learned during their studies. The idea of this paper is to motivate the students by applying a web-based portal which suits the students’ habits like sharing experiences about methods and their use. Furthermore, different media to teach methods will be introduced. The paper illustrates the concept of the new portal, the exemplary introduction in an engineering design course as well as an evaluation.
