This paper describes an attempt to teach physical electronics with the aid of interactive use of the computer by students. The aim was to increase student motivation and retention while minimizing the amount of time spent on the mechanics of programming and terminal operation. An essential part of this was to use display terminals to present much of the information graphically. Six prepackaged programs were developed. The topics covered by these programs are described briefly and an evaluation of the running costs and student reaction is given. Although assessment of the educational value is largely subjective, it is concluded that the approach was successful in reaching its goal.
