Here is a collection of resources that students and teachers may find useful. The emphasis is on the use of these resources for teaching, which includes students self-studying the subject. Resources are added, updated or deleted each year as the syllabus changes. The resources were originally produced for use with my own classes.

All of the content is available in the hope that it may be useful. No responsibility for the correctness of the content is implied and it provided 'as is' for sharing.

The lessons section of the website organises the resources in to a possible teaching order. The subject content and learning intentions are taken from the WJEC Eduqas GCSE (9-1) in Electronics Specification version 3 January 2019. This specification was chosen only because it is what I happened to be teaching at the time of writing the lessons on the website and it is a perfectly good and acceptable specification for students wanting to learn the basics of electronics.

None of the website content is endorsed or acknowledged by WJEC Eduqas in anyway what-so-ever and WJEC Eduqas have no connection, of any sort, to any part of the website.

Technical Notes

This is a footnote about the site. The html code is very simple, written using an html editor and CSS is used to format all the pages. There are downloadable files, most of these are written in either Libre-Office or Google Docs and are made available as pdf documents. The presentations are PowerPoint. The video files are all .mp4.

www.electronicsteaching.com is an alias that points to the main website at wwww.pfnicholls.com which is why all the videos have pfnicholls.com at the start and end.
