Teaching LabVIEW with EV3 - looking for collaborators

We teach LabVIEW to engineering students using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kits.

 

If anyone else is doing the same, we would like to communicate about swapping lecture materials and ideas.

 

We are finding very few online resources specifically for LabVIEW + the EV3. (Any pointers here are appreciated.)

 

Thanks!

Hi Matthew,

 

 

I like the idea!  I've reached out to a couple contacts in Marketing and other departments to see if they have any insights or contacts that may be helpful for you.  I'll let you know if I find out anything.

 

Best,

Hi Matthew,

 

Do you mind sharing more of your information, like which Univeristy you are with?  My contact in Marketing is currently reaching out to a professor he knows to gauge his interest in collaboration and want's to make sure you are included in conversations moving forward.  

If you don't feel comfortable here, you could also send it in a private message.

 

Best,

Sure! If your marketing contact can take a look at the attachment in my first post, it gives my email address, university (LeTourneau), and an example of what we are doing.

 

(Just to dis-ambiguate, a very small number of NI folks may know my name from when I taught at UT Austin, but LeTourneau is my home institution.)

 

Thanks!

Great!

 I let him know.  I'll keep you posted on what I find out!

Also, in case you want to try every avenue, a different colleague of mine found another forums that could be useful to you:

 

LEGO Education Community

https://community.education.lego.com/

 

It appears to have mostly resources far below college level, but it might still help to post there!
