NI myDAQ offers an affordable and accessible way for students to make electrical measurements, control electronics systems, and experience the world through instrumentation. With NI myDAQ sophomore-level engineering students enrolled in a first-semester circuits course experience a completely new way to interact with electrical hardware unfettered by restrictions on location, equipment availability, and scheduling.
Electrical Circuits with NI myDAQ offers a set of learning modules that emphasize short, focused, and motivational experiments based on NI myDAQ and NI ELVISmx computer-based instruments. These video-based learning modules motivate students to experience a circuits concept through measurement, learn underlying principles, and then connect their measurement results to the concept. The learning module formats include mini-labs, homework problems, and tutorials to build student confidence with the NI myDAQ product and associated experiments.
