The Arduino microcontroller has become very popular in the recent years for enabling people with a bit of knowledge in the electronics department to automate certain aspects of their homes.
What sets Arduino apart from other electronics platforms is that it’s open-source, and that makes both the hardware and the software extremely easy to use. Arduino boards are often paired with multiple sensors, and based on their inputs, the platform can turn lights on or off, start or stop motors, and so on. If you’re not willing to buy expensive IoT systems, making one yourself is a much better, not to mention much more affordable option. The guide found in the eLearning section of our store, Walyou Deals, is meant to take people who are just getting started with electronic design, and turn them into experts.
The Arduino step-by-step guide is a 19-hour course that will teach you everything there is to know about this electronics platform over 131 lectures. The Arduino prototyping platform may seem difficult for people who are just getting into electronics, but programming in it isn’t at all terrifying, once you get the hang of it. Of course, you’ll first have to become familiar with the principles of programming microcontrollers. Once you’re done with that, you can proceed to exploring the basic principles in electronics design. You’ll also get to learn a lot about shields, accessories and sensors, plus all the types of components you can connect to the microcontroller.
Yet another aspect that you’ll master by the time you finish this course is how to connect the Arduino board to the Internet for reporting and controlling. Not at last, you’ll find how Arduino can be integrated with motors, gears, and movement.
To get started with the course, you will need an Internet connection for streaming the lectures, as well as an Arduino board and other materials for practicing as you’re learning.
Part of the guaranteed success of this course is represented by the instructor, Dr. Peter Dalmaris, an Electrical and Computer Engineer, with a PhD and a couple of Masters degrees in Information Systems. With an experience of over 13 years as a lecturer, Dalmaris takes a hands-on approach when it comes to his teaching style, and really, when it comes to Arduino, there’s no better way than learning by doing.
