NCLOR Khan Academy Series Updated with Engineering Resources

khan logoThis week the Khan Academy collection in the NCLOR was updated to included more electrical engineering resources. In fact, over 260 items were added to the collection with topics that included: amplifiers, circuit analysis, electricity and magnetism, electrostatics, semiconductor devices, reverse engineering, and signals & systems. The content also included resources on robotics like how to make home-made robots and Lego robotics.

These additional resources join a large collection already in the NCLOR that include content in mathbiology, chemistry, finance, physics, and history. The Khan Academy is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation award winning not-for-profit organization with the goal of changing education for the better. Each video in this series is a digestible chunk of information, approximately 10 minutes long, closed captioned, and especially purposed for viewing on the computer.

Example Video: “What is inside an alarm clock radio?“,  Created by Karl Wendt.

The NCCCS courses that these resource may supplement are: ATR211 and EGR210.

To access these resources, you can do any of the following:

  • Log into the NCLOR and click on the More button on the left menu bar. Then click the Resource Series link and then “Khan Academy” .
  • If you are K-14 faculty, you can add the links to the resources directly to your LMS based course. (learn how)
