This Electronic Components course is intended for those interested in learning electronics.

The course introduces the students to the concept of electronic components, their uses, and how they work within an electrical system. The electronics industry has been skyrocketing over the last few years as more and more people are using electrical appliances for their everyday needs. It is so important to know the basics of how these components work, as they are a necessity in modern society. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you understand what electronic components are, what they do, and how they function.

Electronic components are the building blocks of any electronic device and they come in a wide range of sizes and shapes. These videos will walk you through some basic information about electronics so you know how to identify and use these building blocks. Practical examples are also added.

Welcome to this course

Topics that we will be discussed during the Introduction to Electronic Components Course are listed here in a brief outline.  

  • The Components of Electricity

  • Volt-Ohm-Meter Basics (Measuring Electricity)

  • Circuit Diagrams Basics (Electronic Roadmaps)

  • The Resistor

  • Ohm’s Law

  • The Capacitor

  • The Inductor

  • The Diode

  • The Transistor (Electronic Valves)

Why you should take this course?

  • You will learn how to read circuit diagrams

  • You will learn how to solder

  • You will learn how to identify parts on an electronic schematic diagram

  • You will become familiar with the most commonly used electronic components

  • This course will give you everything you need to start playing with electronic components and fix electronic devices.

  • It is designed so that you can quickly get started without having to spend months of your time learning lots of irrelevant information.

  • it'll cover all of the basics, so even if you never plan on getting any further than this one course, you'll still learn more than enough.

  • You will learn how to take care of the small components that are inside your electronics

Things You Should Know Before we start

  • The topics up to and including Ohm’s Law are what we will start with.  

  • The remaining topics cover additional fundamental components of basic electronics.  

  • The course will be in platform discussion, guide practices, and open question format as the material dictates.  

  • The course uses a standardized volt-ohm-meter (VOM) for illustration.

Quick Summary of things that we will discuss through this course

  • In this Introduction to Electronic Components Course, We will begin by discussing the three components that makeup electricity. 

  • Next will spend more extensive time on how to measure the three components of electricity.  During this section, we will explore two of the three components (voltage and current).

  • This section will cover VOM basics and allow you to become familiar with the most important and basic piece of test equipment.  

  • In the next section, the Circuit diagrams section, you will learn how to use electronic components symbols on an electronic road map called a schematic or circuit diagram.

  • Many of the symbols will represent new concepts for many of you and these concepts will be fully developed once we finish the section.

  • As a result, you will develop the fundamentals of interpreting circuit diagrams so that these illustrations of the arrangement of electronic components can help you with the remainder of the course.

  • The final of the three components, resistors will be covered next.

  • How the three components are related mathematically is Ohm’s Law and this fundamental law will be covered in detail.  These sections make up the basic, basic material of electronics.

  • Four additional components common to virtually all electronic circuits are the capacitor, inductor, diode, and transistor. I will cover these topics with a level of detail that will familiarize the audience with the function of these components and the basics of how they work and react in different situations.  

  • There are text reading assignments for each section of the course.
