About

Real Digital creates and sells the Blackboard circuit board, and produces educational materials suitable for use in various classroom settings. All materials are posted under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike (CC BY-SA) license, so anyone can adapt, share, reuse, and build upon our work.
 
Real Digital was founded in 2018 by a group of engineers and educators interested in improving electrical and computer engineering education. We gladly accept suggestions for additions and improvements to our posted materials, and we are able to help create new educational design projects to help educators and students explore new applications (write us at contact@realdigital.org).
