How to Actually Take My Course

I was reading through my blog earlier today and to my horror, I realized that there is really no direct link from my blog to my course. Considering the amount of time and effort I poured into “Introductory Electronics,” I think it’s important that there’s some sort of easy-ish way (read: step-by-step directions) to access my course on the blog.

So here they are:

  1. Make an account on Global Classroom’s K12Virtual section.
  2. Go to my course.
  3. Buy a Basic Stamp Activity Kit.
  4. Learn lots and lots of cool things in very little time!

So now I suppose you’re wondering if my course is right for you. The answer is yes. Okay, that seems a little broad. You’ll probably enjoy the course a lot if you:

  • Are interested in how computers and other modern electronic devices work
  • Want to build your own electronic devices
  • Have little previous experience with electronics and circuitry
  • Would rather learn from video than from text
  • Are a savvy computer user

Regardless, there’s no risk in watching a few videos before you buy a BASIC Stamp Kit: the course is absolutely free.

Summer Synopsis

This summer, I spent most of my time at work creating a thirteen-part video course about electronics. I became quite comfortable in front of a camera and even though I didn’t have a teleprompter, I came up with a fairly engaging final product. The company president asked me to do a presentation to anyone willing to listen about the four projects I’ve worked on over the past two summers. To present my course, I decided to make a video about what I’d done. It highlights some of the best parts. You can watch it here:

Better yet, if you want to take my course, you can at the K12 Global Classroom once I make it publicly available.
