The resource offers a set of small items that are self-contained. They are very good to teach some of the initial topics of an Electricity course. The items are easy to use.

This was part of a grant with the Eastern Iowa Community College District. These simulations are used in their Engineering Technology Program. Each simulation is embedded into their 20 courses as supplemental material. LMS used is eCollege but, these can be used in any LMS and in for classroom use.
