Microbit online course for Do It Yourself
The Micro:bit is small micro-controller board designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the UK. Study, conducted after they distributed the Micro:bit to year 7 students in the UK, reveals a great deal of improvement in their motivation, participation in STEM subjects and consequently the knowledge level in hands-on learning.
The Micro:bit hardware is the size of a business card and conveniently houses LED matrix, temperature and light sensors, buttons, accelerometer, magnetic compass and Bluetooth communication modules. Graphical programming using online block editor makes it available anytime on any internet-enabled device without any need for software installation.
