Welcome to Tech Explorations Arduino Step by Step Getting Serious, where you will extend your knowledge of Arduino components and techniques and build up new skills in the largest, and the most comprehensive course on the Web!
Arduino is the world's favorite electronics learning and prototyping platform. Millions of people from around the world use it to learn electronics, engineering, programming, and create amazing things, from greenhouse controllers to tree climbing robots remotely controlled lawnmowers.
It is a gateway to a career in engineering, a tool for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics education, a vehicle for artistic and creative expression.
The course is split into 40 sections and over 250 lectures spanning more than 30 hours of video content.
In each section, you will learn a specific topic.
Each topic contains:
Peter, the instructor, and designer of this course, helps you understand the code and the circuit wiring by walking you through them, step by step and explaining every line of code and every wire of the circuit.
Students have access to:
This course contains:
Here are some of the topics that you will learn about in this course (for a full list, please look at the course curriculum):
This course is not appropriate for people new to the Arduino. It will not teach you about the basics of the Arduino, like how to use the Arduino IDE, blink an LED or create a simple sketch and circuit. If you are a new Arduino maker, you should consider taking the Tech Explorations Arduino Step by Step Getting Started course first.
Apart from a basic understanding of the Arduino, a student of this course must be willing to work hard. You can't learn serious skills without serious work. There are a lot of courses out there that promise you a fun and easy learning experience. This is not one of them. I promise you a lot of hard work ahead.
What about tools and parts?
Other than a few essential tools and parts that you can learn about in the first section of the course (which is free to watch) I only ask that you come with an appetite to learn and a willingness to work hard. The course features a large variety of parts, but you don't need (and you shouldn't) get them all to begin learning. In fact, getting all of these parts too early is not a good idea! Watch the free lecture to understand why in the first section of this course.
Should you join right now?
Watch the free lectures in the first section of this course before you choose to join. They contain valuable information that will help you decide if this is the right course for you.
I look forward to learning with you!
