Arduino devices open up the exciting new world of physical computing, making real-world applications available even for non-experts to explore. The possible uses of these micro-controllers are limitless – all you need to add is your imagination.
This course tells you everything you need to know about working with the Arduino platform, from software development and simple circuit building, to prototyping new controllers and building robotics.
You’ll learn not only what you can achieve with Arduino boards, but also strategies for integrating them into larger projects, from installations to sensor networks.
And how could you use it? For functionality, for art… for making life more interesting.

Web Design Foundations is a four part modular course aimed at anyone who wants to learn about how the Web works from the very basic beginnings and be taken step by step, in a friendly informal style, up to the point where they know how to build a basic modern best practices web site and put it online. This includes a bit of theory, but it largely focuses on getting your hands dirty with code (such as HTML and CSS), and learning how it REALLY works.

Terms like "Web Services", "Internet Programming" and "Resource Orientation" can be mentioned in the same sentence as SAP NetWeaver now without anyone so much as raising an eyebrow. With web-scale integration becoming increasingly important in the SAP and enterprise software world, understanding the framework that underpins SAP's offerings in this area is crucial, whether you want to extend your end-to-end integration process knowledge, embrace and adopt existing web offerings from SAP, or roll your own HTTP services. Yeah!!

Due to popular demand, the Omniversity are running Elliot’s VVVV + Projection Mapping courses again. VVVV is powerful toolkit of media technologies, boasting a glut of built in functionality, tools and examples. You can safely presume that you can get it to interface with almost anything you want, it can generate almost anything you want. There aren’t any other media toolkits that can perform so much ‘out of the box’, having you projecting kinect tracked video onto buildings or controlling robot arms from twitter in days rather than weeks.

Elliot Woods is ½ of international interaction design studio Kimchi and Chips, with works featured in Wired, Engadget and the BBC. He is a European and international hero of the projection mapping scene, creating tools and techniques that have been employed in multi-million dollar marketing campaigns and niche art projects alike. Elliot taught a full time projection mapping course at NODE 10 (VVVV’s own forum of the digial arts) and has taught primary school students to top university students (Seoul National University) the art and techniques of projection mapping.
