Detailed Analysis

CourseMarks Score®

7.4 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

5.0 / 10
This course was last updated on 6/2017.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

7.4 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (4.0/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

9.3 / 10
Video Score: 8.7 / 10
The course includes 7h 11m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
The average video length is 3 hours 28 minutes of 119 Internet Of Things courses on Udemy.
Detail Score: 9.6 / 10

The top online course contains a detailed description of the course, what you will learn and also a detailed description about the instructor.

Description

•Taught by a team of electrical engineers from Stanford and IIT Madras.An Internet-Of-Things course for everyone – accessible yet serious, to take you from absolute beginner to a solid intermediate level – built around Home Automation using Raspberry Pi.

This is a course is for everyone. You need not be an electrical engineer, or an engineer at all. We explain all engineering or automation concepts from absolute scratch.
This is an Internet-of-Things course, not merely a Raspberry Pi course. This is important because we think too many courses end up becoming like manuals for the Raspberry Pi, or the Arduino, or some specific hardware device. This course is careful to generalize
The course takes you to a solid intermediate level. The objective is to get you to a point where if you imagine a really cool IoT application, you will be able to independently figure out how to implement it.
We focus on Home Automation using Raspberry Pi for our use-cases. This is so that you can immediately put it to use around the home (turn that music down without getting off the couch!)
As with all our courses, this one too is quirky. The examples are irreverent. Lots of little touches: repetition, zooming out so we remember the big picture, active learning with plenty of quizzes. There’s also a peppy soundtrack, and art – all shown by studies to improve cognition and recall.
What’s Covered:
Internet of Things : Sensors, Actuators, Microcontrollers, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Physical Computing, Smart homes
Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Components, System on a Chip (SOC) , Input Output Interfaces, SD Card / Secondary Storage, Choice of Operating Systems, RISC/CISC Architectures, x86 vs ARM, Raspbian OS installation, Raspbian tour, Linux Shell commands overview, Installing softwares, Connecting to the Internet
Physical Computing: Sensors (Photoresistors, Ultrasonic sensors, motion sensors, temperature and humidity sensors), Relays, LEDs, Push buttons, Basics of circuit design, Ohm’s law, RC circuit, GPIO pins, Serial and Parallel interfaces, UART, SPI, I2C, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), Python (RPi DOT GPIO), WiringPi, Node js (RPi-GPIO)
Home Automation projects: Measuring Distance, Measuring Light Intensity, Controlling switches with sensors, Controlling switches over local and external networks 

You will learn

✓ Understand what the internet of things and physical computing are
✓ Know their way around a Raspberry Pi
✓ Use the Raspberry Pi in Home Automation projects
✓ Think of different IoT applications and visualize the components needed to build them
✓ Do cool things like control switches in their home with their smartphone

Requirements

• No real prerequisites. Beginner level understanding of electric circuits and programming might help but its not mandatory
• If you intend to do the physical computing projects, go ahead and purchase a Raspberry Pi – but the course does give you advice on things you might need to get for your automation projects so you can wait to decide as well.

This course is for

• Yep! Anyone who is interested in Internet of Things, Physical computing, hardware hacking and wants to get their hands dirty with real projects
• Yep! Non-engineers / Non-tech persons who are interested in home automation projects or Raspberry Pi
• Yep! People who are looking to understand the details of IoT and want to think of new startup ideas in the IoT space or work in this space
• Yep! Engineers who have book knowledge but want some help with practical application of electronics concepts

How much does the From 0 to 1: Raspberry Pi and the Internet of Things course cost? Is it worth it?

The course costs $14.99. And currently there is a 83% discount on the original price of the course, which was $89.99. So you save $75 if you enroll the course now.
The average price is $23.5 of 119 Internet Of Things courses. So this course is 49% cheaper than the average Internet Of Things course on Udemy.
