    This article discusses the portability of the Canadian-made simulation software package, "Electronic Workbench" package (EWB) to China. As part of a larger project investigating the portability of various educational software packages, the EWB package was used in electronics instruction in China and was also evaluated by specialists relative to its potential usability and value in Chinese schools and higher education. Through these experiences, an analysis was made about the educational value of EWB in China and the problems likely to confront its more general use in the country. In addition, ideas are proposed for the extension of the EWB package itself and for further development of "workbench" software for other subjects.
