LED Electrical Trainer

Louisiana Economic Development Fast Start (LED) Electrical Trainer

The LED Electrical Trainer is an iPad application designed to replace a board with a distributable collection of components used for training students in the electrical trade. It is designed to simulate real world interaction with these components in a user friendly interface. Students can design, build, and test circuits on the iPad. Additionally, an instructor can create “broken” circuits and assign them to students to debug and fix a problem. The instructor has the capability of indicating which aspect of a component will malfunction via simple malfunction switches that are only visible to the instructor. Students can troubleshoot using an on screen multi-meter. Completed designs can be submitted to the instructor through the school’s existing Moodle Education Management system. Our backend web services handle authenticating instructors and students through this system as well as moving circuit files to and from the file server.
