Internet-of-Things for Beginners (IOT-B)

Learning Outcomes

This course covers the basics of developing a working system prototype using the NetDuino microcontroller, sensors and C# programming language.

Upon completion of this course, trainees will have the competencies to:

  • Understand what is IoT system, microcontroller, sensors and C# programming
  • Wire (no soldering required) up using breadboard the sensors or components
  • Develop the code to control devices and acquire data from the sensors

Curriculum Structure

The hands-on intensive training curriculum is designed in such a way to take advantage of the benefits of different learning and teaching methodologies such as:

  • Short lecture by trainer on key concepts of IoT systems, controllers, sensors, components, electronics, etc
  • Demo of the development tool by trainer
  • Hands-on Workshops for trainees to go through step-by-step to complete a working prototype
  • Demo of workshop solutions by trainees for feedback
  • Reflection on how to apply lessons learnt into a live or other project

Target Audience

This course is suitable for anyone who wants to build a simple system as a hobby or profession. This course is a basic fundamental to develop commercial-ready IoT systems.


Trainees should have some knowledge of programming and basic electronics.
