Hi there. I just posted quite a lot of video content for students and enthusiasts looking to learn Robotics Studio, a free tool from Microsoft that makes robotics fun and easy (even if you don't have a robot).
You can view supporting material here.
Here is a brief index of the content. Enjoy and comment!
