Basic Electricity VIDEOS – OUTLINE

ELE1 Series  -  BASIC ELECTRICITY - ELE1 Series Video Curriculum Outline


The Basic Electricity Video Curriculum represents a series video presentation covering basic electrical

topics commonly associated with the utilization of electrical energy at an introductory level. Basic

concepts involving electricity, how it is applied, how to measure, and troubleshooting are explored topic

areas. All videos are in an MP-4 format and can be used in live and virtual environments.

These videos are designed to elaborate on the Ugly's Electrical References text editions by Jones &

Bartlett. These texts are commonly available through various bookstores and electrical supply houses.

They will also enhance any learning materials covering basic electricity topics. These could also appeal to

a learner’s “just in time” learning experience.

Any videos used in the educational process are not meant to replace textbooks nor the role of

instructors/teachers delivering training on electrical technology. Suggested learning environments

utilizing these learning videos could include:

Typical Classroom Delivery

On-Line Classroom Delivery

Apprenticeship Learning Environments

Self-Taught Electrical Technology Environments
