    Design sketching is an important and versatile skill for engineering students to master. Through it, students translate their design thoughts effectively onto a visual medium, whether to produce hand-drawn sketches onto paper, seamlessly interact with intelligent sketch-based modeling interfaces, or reap the advantages of educational benefits associated with drawing in general. Traditional instructional approaches for teaching design sketching are frequently constrained by the availability of experienced human instructors or the lack of supervised learning from self- practice, while relevant intelligent educational applications for sketch instruction have focused more on assessing users’ art drawings or cognitive developmental progress. In this paper, we introduce an intelligent pen-based computing educational application that not only teaches engineering students how to hone and practice their design sketching skills through stylus-and-touchscreen interaction, but also aide their motivation and self-regulated learning through real-time feedback.
