On the website, there is a FREE section and a pay-section.
The pay section includes the Basic Electronics Course (BEC) and the PIC Microcontroller Course.
This is the first time an educational electronics e-magazine has been presented on
a website where you can learn the basics with circuits that move on
the screen to show various features and you can move components to create circuits.
The courses also contain tests so you can see how you are progressing - some
There are also memory tests to improve your

The internet is truly an amazing way to present information as it reaches
the entire world with many features that are exactly suited to educational

" You can also print these pages but obviously the color and
animations will not be available. An HTML page may extend to 5 or more pages when
printed, so keep your printer stocked with paper.
You can log onto TALKING
Interactive at any time and see the content. The projects are
in the FREE section while the remainder of the site requires a special entry. See
the index on the left for Projects, the first three pages of the BEC course
and the first 6 pages of the PIC course.
To obtain a link to the remainder of the pages, you will need to subscribe. A subscription costs $19.95. This
will give you lifetime entry and a CD of the whole site will be sent to you.
You can subscribe at any time and the best time is when you get a problem in
Basic electronics or PIC Programming.
Each month the content of the site will increase. Many of the articles,
tables and data sheets will be linked, to keep information "at your
finger-tips," so it's important to come back often.
Interactive will not have a printed version. It is

Interactive is intended to help beginners understand electronics and build projects
from the large range of magazines and electronic books on the market.
One of the points we will be
emphasising is the need for a "hands-on" approach.
The only way you can really learn electronics is to "handle the
components" and "build a project." This involves
construction, soldering and getting the project to
work. All the kits featured in the course are designed around one or more building blocks and as you
increase your knowledge of these "blocks," so your electronics
knowledge will expand. The thrust of the course is for you to be able to design your own
circuits and eventually move into the wonderful world of electronics as a
The editor has written over 25 books
on electronics and produced more than 300 kits.
Hundreds of readers already owe their success in the electronics workforce to
the content of these books and now the information they contain (as well as
lots of newly released projects) is on
The revolutionary way the course is presented really can't be explained
in a few words, so it's best to go to the index in the subscription section, click on the first page and
see for yourself. I know you will be amazed. Over 20,000 people have
already read each of the author's 25 books and you can now get an
"active" version by subscribing. This is
one of the advantages of the web - presentation of material at very low cost.
I will see you later in the course, with questions and memory tests . . .
