Summary An important part of educating students in electronics and electrical engineering is laboratory practicals. Providing effective practical experience to students by distance education has always been a significant challenge to the engineering educator. Deakin University has for many years taught practicals in basic digital electronics to off-campus students by means of a kit. The same students have performed related exercises in analogue electronics, which require generating and measuring AC signals, by means of either software simulations or on-campus attendance at lab classes. This year, for the first time, off-campus students are being provided with a new kit, which contains a low-cost, battery-powered AC signal generator, and an interface that allows a PC to be used as an oscilloscope. This kit allows the off-campus student further flexibility in learning basic electronics.
