Complete Kinematics course made in MicroStation http://www.Bentley.com ; for deeper, intuitive learning without abstract formality and dry rigor for its own sake.

This video starts by defining what Centrodes are. It is shown for a rolling wheel. Next a four bar is taken and its space and body centrodes are traced by dragging the mechanism and switching the fixed link. Finally, profiles are created from the centrodes, which roll relative to each other to give the same motion to the coupler even in the absence of the mechanism.
