This is a collection of resources for education in mechanical design.
Also please see, Introduction to Theoretical Kinematics,
as well as my new book Kinematics and Polynomials,
More information on kinematics and mechanism design can be found in my book Geometric Design of Linkages. The book 21st Century Kinematics provides background papers by the presenters at the 2012 NSF Workshop on 21st Century Kinematics . Contact me, I may have a copy I can send to you.
