When I was in elementary school, I remember Ms. Coker telling us we needed to memorize our multiplication tables because we wouldn’t always have a calculator. Years later in college I was told, “learn to use the library, it’s not like you can carry the internet in your pocket.”
Seems strange that I always carry 3 devices on me that do both.
Today a generation of people are growing up with the mass of all human knowledge available to them from birth. No formal education is necessary. And the only need is a modern device with WiFi.
However. Not all accessible information is equal. Which is why I created the AddOhms Electronics Tutorial Video series. Instead of teaching Electrical Engineering as an engineer to other engineers, I’ve created a series that uses simple language to explain electronics to anyone. And now the growing YouTube series, is available for sale on DVD!

Podcasts are an amazing way to extend your knowledge in any subject. This (generally) free content is updated often, comes in a variety of formats, and covers nearly every subject.
Your definition of Podcast might vary from mine. So for this list it means: content regularly produced with the intention of informing on a particular subject which is available either as audio, video, and ideally a RSS feed.

The idea for AddOhms #8 has been around for quite some time. I’m always trying to find ways to explain why current limiting resistors are necessary. So while working in the shop one day, I decided to play with some LEDs and a bench-power supply. Then I decided to record what happens.
The seventh AddOhms TutorialCast has gone “live”. (Gone “uploaded” sounds wrong.) Being able to understand difference between an Arduino and a Pi is a critical point for many new electronics hobbyist. The boards seem so similar, but they are so different. AddOhms #7: Comparing the Arduino and Raspberry Pi
It isn’t always clear what is meant by calling a device or a signal “analog” and “digital”. This AddOhms tutorial explains the difference between analog and digital by using an analogy to clocks. Old-school clocks with hands are a great example of “analog” while alarm clocks with digits as their display are an excellent example of “digital”.
