Digi-Key Continuing Education Center, hosted on Design News, will get you up to working speed quickly in a host of technologies you've been meaning to study, but haven't had the time, via a series of 45-minute online lessons – all without leaving the comfort of your lab or office. Our faculty of expert tutors has divided the interdisciplinary world of design engineering into five dimensions: microcontrollers (basic and advanced), sensors, wireless, power, and lighting.
All of these topics will be tackled in a dedicated week of interactive tutorials where you can ask questions of the tutor, discuss knotty issues with your fellow students, and download a wealth of additional learning materials. (Don't worry if you can't attend a particular course live – seminars are also archived, and our online educational discussions take place 24 hours a day.)
As an enrolled student in DKCEC, you will earn points for the number of courses that you attend, and extra credit is earned for interactivity and the willingness to share information with your peers. The number of points you collect dictates both when you graduate and what grade you receive (see here for more details on the points system). You can track your progress in the school by clicking on your profile.
Graduation triggers all manner of good things: We send you a certificate (real, not virtual) signed by the Dean of DKCEC. We will recognize you in our Roll of Honor on the Design News site, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
So click here now to register in advance for your preferred lectures. Don't delay; space is limited!
