This is a robotics
course for absolute beginners, assuming absolutely no prior
technical background. It will take you gently through the tutorials
This course is
structured as a “hands-on” “Learning-by-Doing” course, with new
programming ideas introduced only when they are immediately needed
by the robot. There is an absolute minimum of “talking-head” videos.
You will need to have access to a LEGO MindStorms EV3 set. The
course is suitable for both the LEGO EV3 Education and the LEGO EV3
Home sets. The course shows you how to download a free EV3-G Editor
from LEGO. The LEGO Editor is suitable for both Windows and
Apple computers, but does not work for Linux, most tablets and smart
phones. However the course videos can be played back on these
devices, so that you can have the video directions available on a
tablet right alongside your LEGO set as you go through this course.

the Kindle readers on these work well, with the YouTube videos being
able to be downloaded in to the computers. In e-Ink devices like the
Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Voyage, the links just act as a
reference and must be typed in to a smartphone, tablet or computer
to see the videos.
