Arduino Starter Online Course

Start exploring the world of electronics and coding and create your very own projects with this self-guided digital learning platform we have created.

What is Arduino?

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so you use the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring), and the Arduino Software (IDE), based on Processing.

 

Why Arduino?

Thanks to its simple and accessible user experience, Arduino has been used in thousands of different projects and applications. The Arduino software is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users. Arduino is a key tool to learn new things. Anyone – children, hobbyists, artists, programmers – can start tinkering just following the step by step instructions of a kit or sharing ideas online with other members of the Arduino community.

 

Who is this for?

This online course is suitable for beginners who are new to electronics and coding. We recommend ages 14 and above.

 

What to expect in this Digital Arduino Starter Kit Course?

♦  Step by step guided projects tutorial (video)

♦  Two assessments

♦  Mini challenges

♦  Certificate of completion

IMPORTANT NOTE:
ONCE PURCHASE HAS BEEN MADE FOR THE ONLINE COURSE, DUCK LEARNING WILL BE SENDING YOU A LINK WITH USERNAME AND PASSWORD TO ACCESS OUR LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (LMS) WITHIN 2-3 WORKING DAYS FROM DATE OF RECEIPT.
DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 SITUATION IN SINGAPORE, WE SEEK YOUR KIND UNDERSTANDING IF DELIVERY OF YOUR KIT MAY TAKE LONGER THAN 3-5 WORKING DAYS.
Course objective

To allow participants to learn electronics and coding in a self-paced and fun way. Participants will receive a thorough hands-on education on various commonly used electronic components such as LEDS, Resistors, Capacitors and more. Each session culminates to a project that participants will have to complete.

 

Outcome

Upon completion of this course, participants will become adept at understanding electronic schematic diagrams. Understanding what the basic components are in a circuit. Learning how to Code in C-Language.
