Survey of Online Teaching Resources: Provide Your Input Today

The IFAC and IEEE Technical Committees on control education are seeking to curate information on freely available learning and teaching resources for the first course in Control. The aim is to provide a simple one-stop shop website where instructors can get an overview of free resources they could adopt with their own students. If you want to propose a particular resource for inclusion to the website, please fill in the survey at

The resources must be freely accessible. We aim to collect as many resources as possible and results will be made available to the entire control community.
