The Engineering Pathway is a portal to high-quality teaching and learning resources in engineering, applied science and math, computer science/information technology, and engineering technology and is designed for use by K-12 and university educators and students. The K-12 engineering curriculum uses engineering as a vehicle for the integration of hands-on science and mathematics through real-world designs and applications that inspire the creativity of youth. The Engineering Pathway's goal is to provide resources that help teachers, parents, faculty, and practicing engineers to inspire more of today's students to follow an engineering path as their way to understand and improve the world. The goal is to promote high standards of teaching excellence through research, faculty development, pedagogical innovations, assessment, and support. Every class you teach is also a research opportunity. We are passionate about continually striving to improve engineering education. Here you can find resources to help kick start or continue your research to improve engineering education.

NEEDS - a digital library with links to online learning materials in engineering and related areas of science and math - has partnered with TeachEngineering to develop the Engineering Pathway, your portal to the most comprehensive collection of resources for all types of engineering education. The National Engineering Education Delivery System (NEEDS) is a digital library of learning resources for engineering education. NEEDS provides web-based access to a database of learning resources where the user (whether they be learners or instructors) can search for, locate, download, and comment on resources to aid their learning or teaching process. In addition NEEDS supports a multi-tier evaluation system from our national award competition with sponsors from industry to user-based reviews of individual learning resources.

Further information can be found by viewing NEEDS Courseware and Publications.

NI hardware delivers modular and easy-to-use solutions for a wide variety of applications ranging from simple data logging to high-performance automated test, industrial control, and advanced embedded control and monitoring.

myDAQ

NI myDAQ is used for a variety of application areas to improve student learning in engineering education. Below you can find resources to learn how NI myDAQ is used in each of the following application areas.

LabVIEW is a graphical programming platform that helps engineers scale from design to test and from small to large systems. It offers unprecedented integration with existing legacy software, IP, and hardware while capitalizing on the latest computing technologies. LabVIEW provides tools to solve today's problems–and the capacity for future innovation–faster and more effectively.

edX

edX is a massive open online course (MOOC) platform founded by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University to host online university-level courses. edX has a prototype course in Circuits and Electronics and other Engineering virtual lab topics. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course. For example, in edX's first MOOC a circuits and electronics course -students built virtual circuits in an online lab. edX platform uses online learning software that uses interactive experiences. As innovators and experimenters, the edX platform is available as open source under the Creative Commons. By conducting and publishing significant research on how students learn, edX empowers and inspires educators around the world and promotes success in learning.

Virtual Labs - An Initiative of the Government of India Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under the National Mission on Education through Information and Communicaton Technology (NME-ICT) Project. The Virtual Labs in this project are divided into two categories: simulation based labs and remote triggered labs. Many of the simulation based labs do not require registration. You can directly perform the experiment without registering yourself. On the other hand, some of the simulation virtual labs require registration for which the user can go to the respective website and do a one-time registration. The site also contains Remote Triggered Labs in which you have to book a slot in order to access them. Once registered, a user can login using the same credentials every time. This registration has to be done by the user separately for each of the remote triggered virtual labs.
