The research webinar was organized by the Research Committee of Engineering Department on 24.09.2020 at 10 AM. The speaker Mr. Kanagaraj Venusamy, Technician, EE section of Engineering department delivered the webinar on the topic “Practical Session on Virtual Lab using Open Access Platform - Tinkercad Circuits”. As many as 47 faculties participated in this webinar.
The abstract of the speech is given below.
In the present pandemic scenario, it is essential for Teachers and students to learn open source online software’s for simulating the various electronics circuits. One of the easiest free online software for circuit simulation is Tinkercad Circuits. Tinkercad is a Cloud/Online access Real time simulator and no need to install any software to access it. Tinkercad Circuits having more tools to construct the circuits in an easy way. A 3D view of each component is available in this. As in regular practical class, one can use breadboard to connect the circuit. One can select the required components and can be placed in the breadboard for the connection. After giving the proper connection we can simulate the circuit to get the output. Even one can connect Arduino based projects and can do programming also. Some projects are inbuilt in this with coding. This will help the educators to follow active teaching and learning process. From the student’s side also, this would be very effective and easy learning process.
