element14 announces webinar series, new DIY learning modules

element14.com, the online community for engineers, has announced a five-part webinar series in collaboration with Arduino, the open source electronic prototyping platform.

Starting on 19 September BST (20 September AEST), the series will explore the full range of professional uses for Arduino, from prototyping and production to broader industrial and commercial applications.

Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi and Business Development VP Dominic Pajak (both pictured) will lead the events, which are free to attend for registered members of the element14 community. Each event will begin at 7 pm BST (4 am AEST) and will last for around one hour, with time allocated for questions at the end.

The full webinar schedule runs as follows:

  • 19 September: Arduino MKR: IoT Prototype to Production
  • 3 October: Arduino MKR and Wireless IoT Connectivity
  • 17 October: Industrial IoT Applications with Arduino MKR
  • 31 October: Arduino MKR Vidor 4000 — Democratizing FPGA
  • 14 November: Commercial IoT Applications with Arduino MKR

“As the leading online community for makers and engineers, we’re always exploring the best ways to bring our members closer to the hardware and software solutions many of them use on a daily basis,” said Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Community and Social Media for element14.com.

“Our online webinars are a cornerstone of this commitment, and we’re delighted to be working with Arduino on this latest series. We hope all of our members will find them informative and enlightening.”

In addition, element14.com has also added new courses to its range of free DIY learning modules, to help its members develop their skills and keep up with the latest trends and innovations within the industry.

The ‘Essentials’ courses take the form of simple, self-paced learning modules covering key areas such as IoT, motor control and power management. Each module is designed to be short enough to be fully completed in around one hour, ending with a quiz that members can complete to validate their learning.

The latest addition to the curriculum is a series on programmable devices, starting with a module focused on the essentials of programmable logic covering Boolean algebra, logic gates, sequential circuits, HDL and more. The course is sponsored by Xilinx.

Other Essentials courses include smart power distribution, Industrial IoT and power fundamentals for makers. All courses can be accessed free of charge by registered members of the element14 community.

“element14 recognises how important it is to keep up to date with the latest trends, innovations and skills,” said Kibbey.

“With the launch of our new Programmable Devices Essentials course, we are continuing to expand our range of multidisciplinary learning modules, developed in close collaboration with our key partners to provide a high-quality, accessible educational resource for all of our members.”

The element14 Essentials Courses are available in the Online Learning Center here.
