This qualitative study aims to identify the crucial elements for developing effective electronic design learning materials for Design and Technology (D&T) education. Five D&T secondary school teachers with expertise in electronic design were selected through purposive sampling and interviewed using a semi-structured format. Atlas.ti 9 software was used for transcribing and thematically analyzing the data, resulting in two themes. The first theme highlights the primary factors affecting teaching aids in the Electronic Design Topic. In contrast, the second theme identifies important elements required for Module Development for Electronic Design Topic in D&T education. The essential elements include module characteristics, learning kits, and simulation software. This study provides insights into creating more efficient and effective learning experiences for students in electronic design by utilizing a needs analysis.
