Arduino Basics From Digi-Key and DesignNews

If you're just getting started with microcontrollers and Arduino, you might want to consider a series of online classes coming up next week, June 9 - 13, 2014.

A blog post on DesignNews, titled "Quick-Learn on Arduino Basics," talks about the popular open source single-board microcontroller from Italy that has helped the 'maker movement' expand as rapidly as it has. According to this post,
"...Next week, Design News and Digi-Key will begin a five-day overview of the Arduino in the continuing education program, Get Your Project Started with Arduino. The class will explain what Arduino is and offer website sources. The program will explain what can you do with an Arduino, offer example projects, and explore the Arduino architecture. The class will be presented by Don Wilcher, a passionate electronics technology teacher and an electrical engineer with 26 years of industrial experience. Wilcher worked on industrial robotics systems, automotive electronic modules and systems, and embedded wireless controls for small consumer
The description of the five days of classes can be found here. The online classes start at 2 PM, USA Eastern Time. If you can't watch at that time, I think you'll be able to view the archived class later.

Other online class topics, such as the Internet of Things, offered by DesignNews are also listed on the page linked in the previous paragraph.
