This paper presents the results of an experiment conducted as part of a communication course for engineering undergraduate students. Starting from a theme of communication and engineering, each group of students produced an audiovisual document on CD-ROM, containing interviews with engineers. The experiment constitutes an approach to knowledge appropriation by students. When students play a role in their own education through an active process of researching and constructing information, they feel more involved in the project. The project therefore emphasizes the notions of stimulation, motivation, and the integration of new technologies (NICT) in learning. KEYWORDS : collaborative work, motivation, communication, engineering, stimulation, audiovisual
