==============================================================================

Who is this training for?
Students, engineers, and scientists who are familiar with dynamic systems, but not Simulink.

What will you learn?
After completing Simulink Onramp, you will be able to create, modify, and troubleshoot Simulink models that simulate dynamic systems and perform basic signal analysis.

What are the prerequisites?
A fundamental understanding of MATLAB and dynamic systems is required. You can get started with MATLAB with a free tutorial MATLAB Onramp:
https://www.mathworks.com/learn/tutorials/matlab-onramp.html

How long is Simulink Onramp?
It should take about 3 hours to complete Simulink Onramp. Your progress is saved if you exit the application, so you can complete it in multiple sessions.

What is covered in Simulink Onramp?
1. Course Overview: Running Simulations
2. Simulink Graphical Environment: Learn about Simulink blocks and signals
3. Inspecting Signals: Visualize signal values during simulation
4. Basic Algorithms: Use math and logic operators to write algorithms
5. Obtaining Help: Access documentation from Simulink
6. Project - Automotive Performance Modes: Practice working with math and logic operators
7. Simulink and MATLAB: Use MATLAB variables and functions in Simulink
8. Dynamic systems in Simulink: Review dynamic systems and learn how they relate to Simulink
9. Discrete systems: Model discrete-time systems
10. Continuous systems: Model continuous-time systems
11. Simulation Time: Choose the simulation duration
12. Project - Modeling a Thermostat: Practice your understanding of discrete dynamic systems
13. Project - Peregrine Falcon Dive: Practice your understanding of continuous dynamic systems
14. Conclusion: Learn about next steps and give feedback on the course

How do you view and share progress through Simulink Onramp?

9.1 Discrete System (1/4)Practice Task 3 problem. I found what is my mistake. I should put in the Unit Delay not Delay( I change the Delay length to 1 and got z-1 ). Hope it helps because I found other people also have the same problem.

I'm stuck at 9.1 Discrete System (1/4)Practice Task 3 where even though copying the exact solution given the model assessment block denies it's conformity. Please resolve the issue

I get an Error in the second task in the Project "Peregrine Falcon Dive" which states the following:
Error evaluating 'StopFcn' callback of block_diagram 'Simulink_Onramp'.
Callback string is 'save_system(gcs);learning.simulink.refreshSignalWindows'
Caused by:
Index exceeds array bounds.
I have no clue what to do about it. I´m using Matlab/Simulink R2018b with a campus wide license of my University

Here is a MATLAB Answers post on how to install and launch Simulink Onramp: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/425917-how-to-install-and-launch-simulink-onramp

Note that this only works with R2018b version of Simulink and you will only see the Learn section and Simulink Onramp on the Simulink Start Page in R2018b version.

Hi Giti, please use the same email address or user ID that you used to log in to File Exchange. No need to create an additional ID.

mahamadyashin shaikh (view profile)

Found the solution. 1
2)Then goto matlab.
3) Then click on Add on on tool strip.
4) then look for the simulink on ramp tile & click on it.
5) then install the tool box.
6)open the simulink from matlab & there on the left bottom corner you have simulink onramp. Enjoy learning!

After installing R2018b I can see the 'Simulink Onramp', however when I clicked on that, I was asked to sign in, when I did it then it asked for creating a 'user ID', I did but it did not proceed and did not accept my user ID despite it was more than 6 character and included numbers?!

Steps to get started:
2. Open MATLAB and change the directory to the folder where u downloaded the file SimulinkOnramp.mltbx.
3. Run this file SimulinkOnramp.mltbx and install it.
4. Now open Simulink by typing Simulink command in the command window.
5. On the buttom left side of the start page, you will find the 'Simulink Onramp', below the recently open Simulink models and projects.
Now you are good to go.
Enjoy the Course

Looks good. There may be a problem with some of the images that appear in the Simulink "Training -Tasks" tab. For example in the further practice section on task 2.1 Blocks and Parameters, the box that says "Complete!" has an image box but only a ? in a blue box appears rather than an image. Might just be my PC though.
