The LabVIEW Academy Curriculum Package is the backbone of the LabVIEW Academy program and equips academic institutions with the resources necessary to effectively teach LabVIEW Core 1 and 2 courses. The topics included in these courses prepare students to develop data acquisition, instrument control, data-logging, and measurement applications.
The LabVIEW Academy Curriculum Package includes:
- Instructor's guide.
- Lecture slides.
- Instructor's notes.
- Participant guide.
- Library of exercises and solutions.
- Multimedia modules for teaching specific LabVIEW concepts.
- Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) exam preparation materials.
In the LabVIEW Core 1 course students familiarize with the LabVIEW environment, explore dataflow programming concepts, and use common LabVIEW development techniques. At the end of the course students are able to create applications using the state machine design pattern to acquire, process, display, and store real-world data.
The LabVIEW Core 2 course, an extension of LabVIEW Core 1, gives students the opportunity to learn how to use common design patterns to implement and distribute LabVIEW applications. Topics covered include programmatic control of the user interface, techniques to optimize reuse of existing code, use of file I/O functions, and tools to create executables and installers.
