Level 1: Online Electronics Course
Have fun and learn about electronics and sensors with hands-on lessons that you can complete at-home! Our Level 1 online electronics course makes it easy for individuals of all backgrounds to gain project-based coding and circuit skills. Now you can take our lab-based electrical engineering course directly from the comfort of your home. Great for personal enrichment and professional development!
By taking this Learn Robotics course you’ll develop foundational coding and circuit skills that will help you develop electronic devices from start to finish.
Designed and produced in consultation with engineers and National Education Standards, our Arduino for Beginners Online Course should give you the practical tech skills to get a jumpstart on your career.
In this online course, you will create a working electronic device to understand how data is collected from sensors.
Learn directly from Robotics Engineer, Liz Miller, and gain fundamental skills in circuits, sensors, signal processing, and Inputs/Outputs (I/O).
Boost Your Knowledge of Data Collection with Sensors & Circuits
For working professionals, this course has ties to data science, engineering, prototyping, and manufacturing.
This course utilizes the Arduino platform to give learners an understanding of how data is collected from sensors. At the end of the course, students will be able to model and simulate metrics for their own Key Performance Indicator (KPI) dashboards.
Additionally, students interested in Connected Devices (Connected Factory) will gain a full understanding of how I/O work so that they can develop software-hardware systems for IoT/IIoT applications and custom prototypes.
What Students are Saying
Enhance Your Data & Decision-Making Skills
These are the goals you’ll achieve after this course:
- How to communicate & program an electronic controller (Arduino)
- How to wire analog and digital circuits to controllers
- How to select appropriate sensors to model particular data
- How to send data to output devices
- How to receive data from input devices
- How to use sensor data to make simple decisions
- How to display data visually and through output devices
By the end of this course, you should be very comfortable creating a simple circuit using a breadboard and developing programs in C (from scratch) to communicate with sensors.
Easily add the LR Electronics Kit!
While you can take the course 100% online using the simulator, it’s always more enjoyable to build the physical circuit using a kit. That’s why we’re now including an option to purchase the Electronics Hardware Kit with your enrollment!
Designed for Personal Enrichment & Development
This course is designed for Absolute Beginners. If you’re interested in electronics and programming, then you’re ready to take this course!
This course can be taken by learners ages 14+ who have little to no experience coding or working with electronics. We cover all of the fundamentals in this course. The only prerequisites that we highly recommend are basic computer and touch typing skills and an interest in working with electronics and software.
As a working professional, this course can boost your resume by giving you key skills in I/O, hands-on prototyping, Digital & Analog Sensors, Data Collection & Decision-making, and technical troubleshooting.
You’ll also have the added bonus of self-enrichment in the robotics field, without being tied to a full-time degree program. This will give you the straight-forward skills you need without the added stress of being in college.
If you’re a high school student, this course will give you the fundamental skills in electronics and programming and prepare you for careers in Electronics/Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering, Robotics/Automation Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and more.
