    The Microelectronics Laboratory Curriculum development, for both associate and bachelor degrees, is a project between Arizona State University East (ASU East), three community colleges in the Maricopa Community College District, and Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center (MATEC) and is funded by the National Science Foundation. This paper describes a model curriculum development strategy to create user-friendly material for students and the instructor. The development team consists of faculty from community colleges, ASU East and industry subject matter experts (SMEs). To maximize the efficiency of the development team an Online Authoring Tool is developed to generate the curriculum materials. This modular curriculum is competency based and industry validated with the goal of producing work-ready graduates. The online tool structure allows all potential authors to upload their material into the system. Based on their development role, it provides access to all (authors, editor and publisher) to review and revise the material. The tool also has the capability of automatically saving each version of the material for logging the changes. When the author uploads the final version of the material the editor makes the final changes and informs the publisher to publish the material to the site. The instructor material covers the information to prepare for the laboratory. The student material covers the details of each laboratory exercise with several learning objectives.
