element14.com, the online community for engineers, has added new courses to its range of free DIY learning modules, to help its members develop their skills and keep up with the latest trends and innovations within the industry.
The ‘Essentials’ courses take the form of simple, self-paced learning modules covering key areas such as IoT, motor control and power management. Each module is designed to be short enough to be fully completed in around one hour, ending with a quiz that members can complete to validate their learning.
The latest addition to the element14.com curriculum is a series on programmable devices, starting with a module focused on the essentials of programmable logic covering Boolean algebra, Logic Gates, Sequential Circuits, HDL and more. The course is sponsored by Xilinx.
Other popular Essentials Courses include smart power distribution, industrial IoT and power fundamentals for makers. All courses can be accessed free of charge by registered members of the element14 community.
Dianne Kibbey, global head of community and social media for the element14 community and Farnell element14, said: “As the development distributor, Farnell element14 recognises how important it is to keep up to date with the latest trends, innovations and skills.”
“With the launch of our new Programmable Devices Essentials course, we are continuing to expand our range of multi-disciplinary learning modules, developed in close collaboration with our key partners to provide a high quality, accessible educational resource for all of our members.”
