This is a repost, because I am having an unbelievably difficult time tracking down a community college which offers the EE class I want on a distance learning basis. I'm hoping maybe someone -- someone who can point me in the right direction -- might catch the post this time, if they missed it the first time.....
I am seeking information on any community colleges, anywhere in the USA, that provide distance-learning (that is, Web-based, CD-based, self-paced textbook study, etc.), for-credit programs of study in electronic engineering. I really need community college based classes, because costs are an issue. (The community colleges in Maryland, where I am based, do NOT offer such classes, and UMUC does not either. The nearest community college in Virginia does offer such classes, but I have run through their distance learning course offerings.)
I have already completed studies in basics of circuits and digital design, but now need classes in transistor theory, basic analog circuits (amplifiers, op-amps, oscillators, etc.) Please reply in the newsgroups, or to the somewhat munged e-mail address below.
I've searched the Web extensively, and it's becoming clear that many colleges -- even technically oriented community colleges, and ones which have many other programs of study online -- are not offering EE programs. I've love to know why. (I thought, maybe, it's because EE classes often have labs. But in fact, you can have theory only EE classes; and besides, many of these same schools offer freshman/sophomore distance learning classes in chemistry, biology, and physics -- fields which traditionally also have labs as well.)
I have found, so far, exactly one college offering what I'm seeking, Sinclair Community College in Ohio -- but for various reasons, too detailed to go into here, their course is probably less than ideal for my needs. So, I'm searching for other community colleges offering the class that I'm seeking, distance learning style. Direct leads from people in the know -- students and engineers -- would be really helpful.
Thanks so much!
