An electrical circuits course with an integrated learning laboratory has been developed at Northern Arizona University, featuring real-world applications oriented to all engineering disciplines. The structure of the course is described, along with the central role of the learning laboratory in this course, the impact on learning by the utilization of up-to-date computer-controlled laboratory equipment, and the benefits and relevance of real-world applications in motivating students. Initial efforts and plans are presented for augmenting this course with self-paced interactive tutorials to address the wide range of capabilities and learning styles that entering freshmen possess.
