This paper presents a Web-based learning platform for power electronics courses. The proposed platform consists of a software reconfigurable power electronics testbed, a Web-based distance laboratory and an interactive e-learning platform. The reconfigurable power electronics testbed can be configured by the student via a Web-based interface. The internet accessible distance laboratory system permits the instructors and students to remotely conduct experiments over the Internet. The integrated interactive multimedia material can assist to the educational environment of power electronics courses. The advantages of the proposed platform include flexibility, friendly user interface, provision for distance waveform measurements and removal of laboratory time and space constraint. Positive response from students indicates that the presented platform is extremely useful for power electronics courses.
