More students (traditional/nontraditional) want their education delivered via online formats. Programs are transitioning classes to online/distance delivery, especially in this time of COVID-19. Traditional hands-on courses offered in technology and engineering education can be difficult to deliver in this manner. An online electronics course will be presented. Example lab assignments and course materials will be discussed.
