This paper describes our continuous effort to implement a flipped classroom approach to teach an Electric Circuits course. The main motivation behind adopting this approach is to allow more time for in-class problem solving and, therefore, improving students' problem solving skills. Prior to each scheduled class meeting, students are asked to watch a recorded short lecture, which covers the topics in detail and includes simple worked out problems. Students are also encouraged to watch our narrated dynamically worked-out problems. These recorded worked-out problems are intended to complement the recorded lectures and help students with their problem solving skills. A typical lecture consists of a quick review of the concepts followed by solving more challenging problems related to the lecture material. A more detailed discussion of this approach and the advantages and disadvantages of such a scheme are presented. The preliminary evaluations of the proposed approach, during the past two years, have been encouraging.
