The issues, problems and possible solutions involved in teaching a modern course on mechanisms and kinematics are addressed from the perspective of a professor and a student. A historical examination shows the value of modern (computer) solution of classical dilemmas. The structure of an introductory course is then presented, with comments on its educational attributes. The solution of several design problems with LINCAGES©, a computer software package, demonstrates the prowess of the modem student/computer liaison.
