You can open all kinds of doors for advancement in so many careers with a basic understanding of electronics. Think of all of the fields and hobbies that involve electronics to some degree! This "Robotics: Learn by building" series of courses focuses on robotics - which itself is a very diverse field that has application in everything from industry, manufacturing, laboratory work, or military, even in home automation. 

Updated November 15, 2020

With over 21,000 students enrolled and more than 2,100 five star ratings, students aged 8 to 60+ have enjoyed the course and projects.

In this module 1 course, you will build electronic circuits, actually make some electronic components from scratch and use them in your circuits, learn about electricity, soldering skills, and basic analog electronics.  You'll need some basic math skills and that's it! No prior knowledge of electricity of electronics is required, and yet by the end of this course you'll have built functioning electronic circuits like light flashers, sound effects, and controlling the robotics engineer's best friend, the servo motor which is a motor that turns to a specific direction at your command. You will have even connected that servo motor up to read electrical impulses from the muscles in your arm to control the motor bionically. All courses have captions for the hearing impaired.

Start through the lessons today to begin your personal education journey towards your goals - a horizon now filled with so many more opportunities because of your new-found knowledge.

Course materials:

You will need electronic parts and a breadboard, which you can purchase as an accompanying kit (the Analog Electronics Kit) or provide your own.

The first section of the course (available for free preview) explains what the tools and parts are and what you will need if you are supplying your own electronic parts. 

Tools needed: a multimeter, soldering iron and solder, wire,

This course is the prerequisite for the module II course which is digital electronics where you will work with a computer-on-a-chip and hook that computer up to the real world.  In module III you'll learn robotic drive systems and physics, and gain a wide variety of skills in prototyping so you can actually build your own robots and manufacture your own parts.  In module IV, you'll culminate all you've learned so far as you build a 3D printer from scratch, hook it up to a desktop computer and make your own plastic parts.  The 3D printer is, in effect, a robot which you can then use to make parts for your other robot designs. In module V you can take your robot design and construction skills to the next level with a hands-on approach to autonomous robotic systems: learning about various sensors to know where you are and what your robot is doing, GPS navigation, basic artificial intelligence, powerful microchips known as FPGA's where you literally design a custom circuit on the chip, vision systems and more.

Knowledge of Electricity and Electronics is extremely valuable nowadays!

Electronic circuits are everywhere, from computers and smartphones, to home appliances and cars. Think of all the everyday objects that are becoming “smart”... in the future, most of the things that we own will contain some electronics. Jobs in electronics are in high demand and well paid in almost every country!

Building electronic products is incredibly rewarding, whether you do it professionally or just as a hobby. There is just something different and exciting about designing something physical that can be hold in one’s hand and that interacts with the outside world, and today it has become incredibly easy to get started thanks to cheap development boards such as the Arduino and Raspberry Pi, combined with the right knowledge.

Differently than what happens in other disciplines, knowledge of Electronics does not become obsolete, but it is always current as it is intimately connected to physics and to the fundamental laws of nature. Hence, while new components and chips might come along every year, the fundamental principles of Electronics always stay the same.


While most of the material and courses available online tend to be high-level and focused on applications (for instance, it shows students how to connect components on a breadboard to create a circuit), the goal of this course is to explain the fundamental concepts of Electricity and Electronics, to allow you to fully understand how circuits work. Every topic is addressed starting from the first principles of the underlying physics and fundamental laws, and only later the acquired knowledge is used to explain how to design more complex circuits for different applications.


  • Fundamental concepts of Electricity (Current, Energy, Voltage, Power)

  • Most important electronic components (Resistor, Capacitors, Diodes, etc)

  • The main laws governing currents and voltages in circuits (Ohm’s law, Kirchhoff’s laws, etc)

  • Interface with Microcontrollers (coming soon)


This is an introductory course about the theory of Electricity and Electronics, so no previous knowledge is required. To get the best out of the lessons, students should be comfortable with some basic arithmetic as I will often write and solve equations, in particular when analyzing simple circuits. Understanding a bit of physics can help too, but it is not required. Most importantly, no special hardware or software is required.

Arrhythmia, AFIB and Palpitations – electricity of the heart

The things you need to know about arrhythmia and electrical issues of the heart.

Created by Kim Milt - Video Producer


Students: 1806, Price: Free

Students: 1806, Price:  Free

This course was initiated by a scare I personally had with Arrhythmia. Very unexpectedly I had a diagnosis and eventual series of treatments for Atrial Fibrillation (AFIB). It was very frightening at times, mainly because I found nothing of value on the internet. So I contacted some of the top electrophysiologists in Florida, and created this course. We know it will bring you some knowledge and peace if you or a member of your family has been diagnosed with one of the electrical issues of the heart.

The course I created deals with many kinds of Arrhythmia's.

Not only Atrial Fibrillation, but Tachycardia, Sudden Death Syndrome, Palpitations, various Treatments, Implantable devices, Pacemakers, Loop Recorders, Defibrillators and interviews with several highly successful doctors who specialize in these kinds of heart issues.

I hope this course helps you learn the things that might be wrong with you or a loved one, and the current treatments that are available.

70 IGCSE Electricity question you can never miss before Exam

No Cambridge IGCSE physics student can go to the final Exam without answering these questions,

Created by 9 to 12 - Teach your self


Students: 1312, Price: $19.99

Students: 1312, Price:  Paid

This course is one course of a complete package of courses that is specialized in answering (Cambridge IGCSE Physics past papers)

The course is continuously growing, started with 50 questions, and adding more questions as much as we can,

The package also includes other courses:

IGCSE Mechanics past papers questions

IGCSE Thermal Physics past papers questions

IGCSE Atomic Physics past papers questions

IGCSE Waves past papers questions

I can never imagine a Cambridge IGCSE Physics student who did not:

    1-Answer these past papers questions,

    2-Understand how to read the mark scheme of these questions,

    3-Know how to write a full understandable scientific answer for these questions,

    4-Know the marks distribution among the full answer according to the mark scheme,

There are many differences between watching science for fun or general knowledge, and studying science for an exam,

If you are aiming for an A* or A, reading the books and watching videos to explain the syllabus, are not enough,

You must understand those people who will correct your paper,

Sometimes you understand things, but you are unable to express and explain what is in your mind,

That is why understanding your syllabus perfectly and strongly is not enough,

This is only 40% of the road to the A*,

You must communicate with the minds of the examiners through answering past papers, understanding mark schemes which include the answer they would love to hear from you,

This is 60% of the road,

You must choose the courses that are related to your syllabus, not just (physics syllabus),

Most of videos on the internet may include what you need in your syllabus, but they also include a lot of thing that you do not need,

From 9 to 12 courses, realized this fact,

That is why their courses are specialized in answering past papers for each specific syllabus and not general past papers,

Each question will be answered in the following steps:

    1-The teacher reads the question with loud and clear voice,

    2-3 seconds chance to pause the video so you read it again carefully and try can answer the question yourself in your notebook – if you want-

    3-If you did not pause the video, the countdown ends and the teacher starts to explain the question, giving a quick express revision on the points related to this question in an average of 1 minute,

    4-The teacher gives you the final answer,

    5-The mark scheme is displayed on the screen, and the teacher starts to explain the mark scheme and gives any other possible answers,

    6-The teacher compares the mark scheme with his answer and shows you what are the marks of the question given for and how his answer gets the full mark of the question,

    7-All these steps for each question take an average duration of 2 minute for each question.

Again whether you take them with us or in any other place I can never imagine a Cambridge IGCSE Physics student who goes to the final exam without understanding these questions,

I hope you enjoy and benefit.

Electricity, The Basics: Charges, Forces & Fields (Physics)

A Detailed Review of the Fundamentals of Electrical Sciences (Electric Charges, Electric Forces and Electric Fields)

Created by Edouard Reny - Music Producer & Tutor in Physics


Students: 64, Price: $39.99

Students: 64, Price:  Paid

“Electricity, The Basics” teaches the elementary notions you need to know to fully enjoy learning subjects related to electricity:
Electric Charges, Electric Forces and Electric Fields.

*** Structure of the course ***

“Electricity, The Basics” is structured in 3 sections. All sections contain lessons, applied examples, exercises with detailed corrections, and many tips and tricks on how to approach questions in Physics.

Section 1, “Electric Charges”

This initial section starts from the very beginning by defining what a charge really is. Then, it looks at how to quantify a charge, details the principles of conservation of charge and presents how they interact with each other. It also defines an electric current like a motion of charges and explains why some materials conduct electricity and why others don’t.

Then, the student is invited to play with static electricity! This section presents ‘magic’ tricks that can easily be performed by playing with electric charges. Of course, these demonstrations are followed by explanations on what is really going on physically.

The section concludes with the real definition of a charge by briefly introducing the concept of electric field that is developed further in section 3.

And finally, the student can test his new knowledge with a Quiz video.

Section 2, ”Electric Forces”

In Section 2, the student gets familiar with the mathematical expression of the electric interaction between charges, Coulomb’s Law. The student is presented with the parameters that impact the force between two charges (the magnitude of the charges, the distance between them and the environment in which the charges are located).

The student is also exposed to a variety of training exercises that teaches how to manipulate this equation in order to solve physics problems involving electric charges. The exercises are presented in increasing levels of difficulty.

Section 3, ”Electric Fields”

The concept of electric fields is a cornerstone of all topics related to electricity. This is why it is essential to understand what are electric fields, and feel comfortable when manipulating them. This is what this section is all about: The student is immersed in a journey deep into the foundations of electric fields.

The first video focuses on defining what a field is, and from there, it branches to the definition of an electric field. The 2 videos that follow describe in detail the cause and the effect of an electric field, by introducing the notion of electric field strength. These videos are followed by 3 exercise videos where the student can apply this new knowledge. The last of these exercises shows how Coulomb’s Law emerges naturally from the notion of electric fields.

The 4 lessons and exercise videos after that teach how to manipulate electric fields strengths as vectors. After viewing these 4 videos, you will be able to predict the motion of a charge placed in one or more electric fields.

This naturally leads to the concept of electric field lines in the next two videos, with a special focus on the two most common electric field geometries: radial fields and uniform fields.

The final video is an exam level exercise that centralizes all the notions presented in this section.

*** Who is this course for? ***

This course is suited for high-school students studying Physics (from grade 9 to 12). The content of this course complies with Chapter 5.1 of the IB Physics Program, and topic 7.1 of the A-Level Curriculum.

In addition to the lesson videos, all sections contain many exercises and exam inspired questions. This makes this course a very valuable tool for preparing any upcoming physics exam that may have questions related to electric charges, electric forces and/or electric fields.

This course is also suited as a refresher for early university students that wish to solidify the very basics of electricity.

And of course, any person interested in physics and how the world works would also enjoy the voyage.

This course is also aimed at students that are just getting by with their study of electricity by learning lessons by heart, without really understand what is going on. Students in such a situation might soon hit a wall when they try to move forward in their study of electricity. This course will prevent this by rebuilding the foundations.

Please note that this course does not teach electric circuits, nor does is teach about electric potentials and electrical potential energy. It just gives you a solid understanding of the fundamental notions that will allow you to enjoy the study of these topics. (I am most certainly considering producing such courses in the future).

*** What does this course NOT contain – and potential future developments ***

This course provides the student with a solid understanding of the fundamental notions that will allow him or her to enjoy studying subjects related to electricity. A good mastery of the notions of electric charge, electric force and electric fields is required before studying concepts like electric potential and potential energy. Those concepts are not discussed here. Consequently, this course does not discuss electric circuits either.

Producing such a course is a huge time investment. So, if there is enough interest from students, I will produce “Electricity, The Basics Part 2” focused on electric potentials, electric potential energy and electric currents, as well as the very basics of some components like a battery or a resistor. “Electricity, The Basics Part 3” would be focused on the analysis of electric circuits (resistive circuits). And if, students motivate me to make more courses on this topic, they can expect capacitive circuits. magnetism and/or electromagnetic induction… Let me know in the comments if you would like me to proceed.

All videos of sections 1 and 2, and all lesson videos of section 3 have been “hard captioned” (entered manually in a format aimed at optimising the user’s experience).

*** The Teacher ***

Edouard Reny is a PhD in Solid State Chemistry and an engineer in Material Sciences. He has taught at university during his academic years. During his industrial years, he has trained chemical engineers and post-graduate students in electrochemical analytical techniques. Since 2013, he is an independent teacher in Physics. He has supported about a hundred IB Physics, A-Level and AP students, one-on-one or in small groups. And, for now, 100% have passed their Physics exam!

"The physics curricula that are taught today in high schools are truly fascinating, much more than 30 years ago when I myself was a high school student. Still, I do observe a problem… I see it during the first sessions with a new student: a lack of enthusiasm and no fascination whatsoever for the marvels they are being shown… For high school students, Physics appears like a painful topic to handle…

After a few months with me, the students start to feel the fascination, and get inspired by it. Many of my students, that took a tutor (me) just to help them pass this “horrible” topic, got very high marks at exams. And guess what, a large fraction of these are now graduating in an area of Physics at University! They got hooked!

My teaching style is focused on inspiring students, because when you are hooked, study becomes a hobby, and when an activity becomes a hobby, it becomes painless to get good at it: Consequence: the marks go up significantly!"
