Video Description

Are you interested in Arduino and electronics, but aren’t sure how to get started? Beginning with no assumed knowledge, we will cover the basic set up for the Arduino and the Arduino IDE, as well as a few components and how to use them. This video will equip you with enough base knowledge to empower you to start exploring on your own.


The goal of this video is for those with no electronics knowledge or experience to have a fun introduction to Ardunio and see the magic in getting that first LED blinking. This video avoids getting bogged down in technical terms and is perfect for those who don’t want to decipher intense documentation to jump start their electronics journey.
What You Will Learn

  1. Hello,
    This course wasn’t ripped correctly. All of the video files are under a minute long. They’re in fact only previews of the videos. This happened because the tool that was used for downloading videos didn’t download full-length files.

    Anyway, this course is useless as posted.
