The NI education platform is designed to create engaging, authentic learning experiences that prepare students for the next generation of innovation. Cost-effective, scalable solutions offer academic institutions flexible integration across multiple science and engineering disciplines. The NI education platform combines the following:Flexible hardware:
Professional-grade measurement and control with real signalsIndustry-standard software:
Bridge theory, simulation, and experimentationRelevant applications and courseware:
Integrate tools across the curriculum
The NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) integrates 12 commonly used plug-and-play computer based instruments in one compact form factor. Designed for education with a modular top-board design and powered by NI LabVIEW system design software, educators can teach concepts across the curriculum including circuit design, instrumentation, controls, telecommunications, and embedded/microcontroller (MCU) theory.
Extend learning beyond the lab and lecture with the portable NI myDAQ measurement and control device. NI myDAQ integrates eight of the same plug-and-play software instruments used on NI ELVIS to give students more time with the tools, time with concepts, and time to discover and reinforce science and engineering concepts.
As the only complete, ready-to-use teaching solution of its kind, the NI USRP™ (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) platform supports RF and communications courses through accessible, hands-on laboratory learning with real-world signals.
By teaching with LabVIEW, you help students accomplish hands-on and system-based learning in a single environment with skills and methods they’ll use in their careers. With built-in I/O integration and instrument control, thousands of functions for math and signal processing, user interfaces to visualize and explore data, and deployment to multiple hardware targets, students access the power of graphical system design to go from concept to prototype in one semester.
More than 2,000 schools worldwide rely on NI Multisim circuit design software to give students practical application in designing, prototyping, and testing electrical circuits. With NI ELVIS and NI myDAQ integration, students move seamlessly from theory to simulation to prototyping on professional-grade software that helps them visualize and interact intuitively with circuit concepts.
Inspired by customer applications and developed in collaboration with leading educational suppliers, NI miniSystems extend NI myDAQ with small-scale replications of real-world systems like a roll-chassis dynamometer or earthquake-simulating shaker table. These systems give students the chance to work on the challenges that attracted them to engineering in the first place, helping educators engage and retain the next generation of innovators.
Educators and students worldwide contribute hundreds of free educational resources, labs, exercises, textbooks, and tutorials for using and integrating NI products into courses and projects. The library of materials covers disciplines throughout science and engineering to save time and generate ideas for teaching, learning, and student design.
Teachers in secondary education (high school) can find customized information and lesson plans on K12Lab.
