I'm currently in an "Information Technology" program, and this program includes some electronics courses. So, I know a little bit about voltage sources, current sources, resistors, capacitors, inductors, operational amplifiers, basic first-order filters, and soon I should know a little bit about diodes and transistors.
In class, we hear some theory. In labs, we play with oscilloscopes. And these things are all fine and good, but I'd like to building something.
I'm tapping you fine folks for resources, simple and informative beginner's projects that will help me learn these topics more solidly. Start me with educative tutorials on blinking lights and finish with educative tutorials on line-following robots (or something like that). I'll emphasize that the recurring theme is 'educative'.
I want to make it clear that I do not come from an electronics background. (I just pretend like I do when I'm at school.)
