These tutorials are about having fun building and coding small Lego MindStorms EV3 robots, finding out how to command them to smile and speak, travel in straight and curved lines, and how to follow the edge of a line. It is a fun course aimed at "Absolute Beginners". Notes on these tutorials are available in ePub and printable pdf format at http://www.DrGraeme.org.
We have a similar free course in MOOC format at https://www.udemy.com/fun-with-beginner-lego-mindstorms-e... which has been viewed by over 6000 students.
This mini-course includes about 2 hours of video lessons. How long it will take you to complete this course is hard to predict, but as a rough indication, we have used videos similar to these as the basis for about half of an 8-week, 2 hours per week after-school course for middle school classes and for Adult Education and Parent/Child classes.
The course is structured as a “hands-on” “Learning-by-Doing” robotics course, with new building, programming and coding 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. This Lego Editor is suitable for both Windows and Apple computers, but does not work for Linux, tablets or smart phones. However the course videos and ePub instructions can be played back on these devices, so that you can have the video directions available on a tablet or smartphone right alongside your Lego set as you go through this course.
We have used the videos in this course during both individual and full-class lessons. The videos have also been used successfully by home study students.
Have fun! Enjoy your robots!
