As is the case with many technical projects, it's possible to assemble an electronic circuit without really understanding the different parts involved—you can just connect components together to match an electronic schematic. That said, in order to debug an existing circuit—or design your own—you have to actually understand how the individual electrical components work and how to use them together. In this course, join electrical engineer Barron Stone as he shares the knowledge and tools you need to learn exactly that. Barron demonstrates how to build basic circuits using resistors, capacitors, and inductors. He dives into how each component works and shows the common circuits that use them. He explains the difference between alternating current and direct current and how to use an oscilloscope to view electrical signals. Then, he demonstrates building passive filter circuits to remove unwanted frequency components from those signals.

With AutoCAD P&ID software, you can quickly create, edit, and validate piping and instrumentation design information with AutoCAD-based editing tools. In this course, discover how to leverage this powerful software to create a project-based piping and instrumentation diagram. Instructor Irene Radcliffe walks through the desktop environment and goes into the basic functions of the program. She explains how to locate and open a P&ID project, use the Project Manager function to create a new drawing, and build a new drawing by adding equipment, pipe lines, valves, and instrumentation. Irene also helps you understand how tagging works in P&ID, as well as how to use the Data Manager to manage the project database.
Often, creative professionals find themselves in their current roles due to a combination of aptitude for a particular craft—photography, for example—and an insatiable curiosity that drives them to cultivate a diverse skill set. In today's market, where photographers often need to know design and designers often need to know how to take great pictures, these varied skill sets are crucial. Essentially, the more you know, the greater your professional value. In this course, get a high-level overview of some of the most popular creative fields—including graphic design, photography, video, and UX design—and learn which techniques you need to know to stay competitive. Join instructor Jim Heid as he shows the tools needed for various kinds of work, the skills that you'll need to get the most out of those tools, and the LinkedIn Learning courses that allow you to explore these tools and skills at your own pace.
Learning how to configure vSphere settings is essential to being able to effectively administer and manage a virtual machine (VM). This course covers administration and management of VMware vSphere VMs.
Instructor Russell Long demonstrates how to configure advanced settings, create and manage a multisite content library, set up and maintain vCloud Air, and deploy vApps. Russell shows how to publish and subscribe to a content catalog, determine which permissions are required to manage content catalogs, and configure a content library to work across sites. He compares automatic sync with on-demand sync. He also takes you through the steps of authentication configuration, VM migration to vCloud Air, and VPN connection verification.
This course is also an exam preparation resource, as it covers the topics in the Administer and Manage vSphere Virtual Machine domain of the VCP-DCV 6 exam.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize has the distinction of being both extremely powerful and easy to use, boasting tools that can help both engineers and nontechnical content creators leverage 3D CAD data to create compelling, photorealistic content. In this course, get up to speed with SOLIDWORKS Visualize, and discover how to use this powerful software to build striking renderings of your designs. Instructor Gabriel Corbett explains how to navigate SOLIDWORKS Visualize, import parts and assemblies into the workspace, apply materials, add cameras, create advanced animations, and more.
AutoCAD Civil 3D boasts a line of specialized layout tools designed to help you generate 3D models of pressure networks, such as water transmission systems, gas lines, and force mains. In this course, instructor Eric Chappell explains how to leverage these features to approach the creation of a pressure pipe network, edit your designs, and document them so that others know how to implement your ideas. Eric walks through the complete pressure pipe design process, from the initial creation of pipes and fittings all the way to the analysis stage.
