To take electronics courses online, sign up with an online course provider, such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Open Courseware, Ashworth College or Extron Electronics. Some of these courses, such as MIT's Open Coursware program, are available for free, whereas others require tuition payments and website student accounts.
As of 2015, MIT's Open Courseware program offers a free online course entitled Practical Electronics. The course has undergradute/graduate level content, and bases itself on a course taught at MIT in 2004. Available material accompanying the course include a syllabus, calendar, lecture notes, image galleries, and projects and examples. The lecture notes come in PDF format, so users need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader. The image galleries include lab pictures.
Ashworth College provides an Electronics Training diploma program that students can work on at their own pace. Students can also receive academic help via phone, email or online. The Ashworth College website provides detailed tuition and enrollment information for the program.
Audio/video professionals often take online courses from Extron Electronics to renew their certifications. Students can access the courses any time of day. Students learn about topics such as TouchLink layouts using GUI Configurator and the relationship between TouchLink and Global Configurator.
