Abstract

This paper describes a basic electronics learning system combining a hypermedia system explaining theoretical concepts with a basic simulator and a virtual laboratory to improve the engineering education process on electronics and the students skills before going to the actual laboratory. To accomplish this objective the system also provides a set of complementary resources, constituting a bridge between theory and practice. This new kind of hypermedia tools takes advantage of the information technologies (multimedia, simulation, etc.) and also facilitates the self assessment of the students knowledge.
