summary The following is a brief discussion of an alternative tool for teaching structural behavior to architecture and introduc-tory level engineering students. The advanced computer modeling and animation can be utilized to teach structural behavior in service condition in such a way that better meets the needs and capabilities of architecture students. It can provide a methodology and system, which develops an intuitive and conceptual understanding of structures before students can become overwhelmed with analytical and engineering mathematics. Coupled with appropriate technical instruction, these tools and methods facilitate a much stronger understanding of basic and advanced structures principles.
