This study designs a programmable logic controller (PLC) and wireless touch control technique for use in mechatronics learning. Its purposeisto provide a laboratory platform for students of engineering and technologyto experiment with the design of wireless touch control technique. The principles of instructional systems design were implemented in the development of the learning module. This innovative two-position oscillating learning system elucidates the principles, function and application of mechatronics and wireless touch control technique. Thirty-eight students and eight domain experts answered an anonymous questionnaire. The domain experts were university professors and/or researchers with an average of more than five years of experience in mechatronics. An encouraging preliminary assessment of the proposed system demonstrated the accuracy of the embedded knowledge as well as the effectiveness.
