This paper discusses techniques used to develop an electronic book about electromagnetics. The techniques are based on problem-based learning, which is the latest method used for teaching. This method, together with engineering tools, is well suited for teaching these subjects to students in Asia. The proposed techniques allows teaching to be not limited to paper study by allowing the use of multimedia methods and computational electromagnetics. This enables the users to have a variety of means for the study of these areas. The embedded computing software and the design program also enhance the users' interest.
