An introductory electronic course is a requirement for almost most of the non-electrical engineering students. It is a worthwhile opportunity for students to broaden their knowledge and multidisciplinary skills to be a valuable member of a diverse team to meet complex challenges of emerging problems. Providing valuable experience to students in these courses is crucial to help them understand basic concepts in Electronics as wells as raising their interest in electronics. This can be achieved in part by using appropriate technology in our curriculum. The purpose of this paper is to introduce new technologies such as demonstration, applets, etc. to help educators to improve their introductory electronics course curriculum for non-electrical engineering students. By using new technologies, Educators can expect the following contributions: • Students will be more active learners. • Students will understand concepts and complex mathematical relations better. • Students will be more interested in the class and will have more satisfaction. • Students will have more discussion and interactivity. • Students will gauge their level of understanding outside of the class. • Materials that can be covered in class will be extended. • The Quality of questions asked by students will improve. • Students will have access to these tools online.
