The basic objective of the current paper is to present recent results on e-learning, including a virtual laboratory, designed for education of power electronics. The e-learning curriculum is suitable for both academic and industrial education in the frames of vocational trainings. It contains multimedia-rich presentation screens to teach the principles of the respective phenomena, furthermore the interactive parts strongly support the deepening of the fresh knowledge. The interactive calculation tools facilitate the fast and simple model-development in WEB browsers for several often used power electronic circuits (e.g. static and dynamic models of dc-dc converters). Providing access to real circuits via online laboratory experiments takes the next step for the trainees, allowing the change of several circuit parameters and the continuous monitoring of the system even from rather far places. It can have an important role in the distance education too.
