Coursera: Linear Circuits 1: DC Analysis

 with  Dr. Bonnie H. Ferri, Dr. Joyelle Harris and Dr Mary Ann Weitnauer
This course explains how to analyze circuits that have direct current (DC) current or voltage sources. A DC source is one that is constant. Circuits with resistors, capacitors, and inductors are covered, both analytically and experimentally. Some practical applications in sensors are demonstrated.


Module 1: Introduction
This module reviews background material from physics on the basic properties of electricity and electrical circuits.

Module 2
The module describes some basic principles used in circuit analysis.

Module 3
This module demonstrates physical resistive circuits and introduces several systematic ways to solve circuit problems.

Module 4
This module introduces additional methods for analyzing circuit problems and how resistors are used in sensors.

Module 5
This module introduces capacitors and inductors, which are called "reactive" circuit elements.

Module 6
This module introduces the transient response behavior of RC and RL circuits after a switch in a circuit is changed.

Module 7
This module demonstrates useful applications of capacitors and inductors in real engineering systems and introduces the behavior of second-order reactive circuits.

What are MOOCs?
MOOCs stand for Massive Open Online Courses. These are free online courses from universities around the world (eg. Stanford Harvard MIT) offered to anyone with an internet connection.
How do I register?
To register for a course, click on "Go to Class" button on the course page. This will take you to the providers website where you can register for the course.
How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you.  They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
