Using the online lab simulation program, for example, students can “visit” an actual parts shelf, look at manuals, and figure out exactly which video card will be the best match for a specific computer motherboard. Students select the right item and plug it into the computer that’s being designed. If the two parts aren’t compatible, a red “X” pops up on the screen, alerting students to the error. “In real life, if someone had grabbed a component that wasn’t correct, that item would likely present problems,” DeBroeck said, “whereas using the lab on the computer, they’re just alerted to the issue, and allowed to go back and correct the problem.”
