Zhan, Wei; Porter, Jay R.; Morgan, Joseph A. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2014
This paper discusses the design and implementation of laboratories and course projects using LabVIEW in an instrumentation course. The pedagogical challenge is to enhance students' learning of digital communication using LabVIEW. LabVIEW was extensively used in the laboratory sessions, which better prepared students for the course projects. Two…
