**(b). Useful eSim content developed by FOSSEE**A significant issue with the acceptance of open source software on a large scale by academia, is due to the lack of documentation. We had proposed and implemented a novel/unique approach to solve this problem through the Textbook Companion (TBC). The eSim TBC is a repository of simulations of solved examples from standard Engineering and Science textbooks coded using eSim. These solved simulations are freely available.

Apart from the TBCs, another activity under eSim is the Circuit Simulation Project. Students, faculty and practitioners of electrical and electronics and allied fields can rebuild existing circuit design and simulations using eSim, through the Circuit Simulation project. The contributors are awarded certificate and honorarium. Currently, we have more than 50 simulations available for download and use.
