The educational methodologies employed in Industrial Electronics have been affected by Covid-19. In many cases, conventional learning methods relying on face-to-face lectures have been replaced by online methodologies. The whole process has required a fast adaptation and development of the e-learning tools to ensure a quality of theoretical, practical and laboratory lectures, as well as the development of new methods for the reliable assessment of the learning process. From this perspective, the present paper deals with the different strategies that have been implemented in institutions of several countries located in different geographical areas, including Portugal, Spain, Japan and Australia. It is shown that the use of methodologies, such as flip teaching, has provided a wide variety of possibilities to adapt to the new educational context. Moreover, for Industrial Electronics degrees, the use of virtual or remote laboratories, portable learning tools and advanced information and communication technologies have also risen as valuable resources. The paper also reports the problems arising during the development of the e-learning tools, their implementation constraints, and the evaluation of their results.
