It is worth mentioning that new IoT ideas, hardware, software, and applications are introduced every second. Because of that, technical, specific knowledge, mostly on hardware and software, becomes rapidly outdated. Moreover, due to the amount of information related to embedded systems development and IoT development, it is impossible to assemble all information regarding the IoT world.

The IOT-OPEN.EU project is instantly evolving and always brings new content, but it cannot be the only source of knowledge in the current stage of development. We distribute all content via a single starting point, the website, but we suggest navigating to the online resources presented below. Those projects, websites and resources are not related to our project. Still, we consider them a valuable source.

Please also note even if the IOT-OPEN.The EU project is CC BY-NC licenced, and the resources listed below may need an access fee, registration, etc.

Many online platforms provide online courses by different universities on relevant topics like the Internet of Things, embedded systems, programming languages, connectivity and security, robotics, big data, computer vision, and many more. Some of the most popular platforms are Coursera [1], edX [2], Udacity [3], Udemy [4], Skillshare [5]. Some of these courses are free of charge, and at the end of these courses, a certificate about skills can be acquired (often for an additional price).

Electronics Tutorials website [6] offers multiple basic electronics tutorial topics, including AC and DC circuit theory, amplifiers, semiconductors, filters, Boolean algebra, capacitors, power electronics, transistors, operational amplifiers, sequential logic, and many more. It contains an extensive description of the theory with graphics and explanations.

Embedded Experts website [7] focuses on commercial, certified courses mainly related to the embedded platforms. It may help study technologies related to the Edge Class and Fog Class devices that are fundamental for IoT and bare metal IoT development.

Instructables [8] is a project platform with plenty of Internet of Things projects for different knowledge levels. It is also possible to enrol on other classes with many lessons that teach about specific related topics that are not limited only to electronics but also cover issues such as sewing, food, craft, 3D printing, etc. One section of the Instructables website offers multiple contests and challenges related to the topic, with valuable prizes.

Tinkercad is a simple, online 3D design and 3D platform that also allows users to model and test circuits ( With Tinkercad, it is possible to program and simulate a virtual Arduino board online using different libraries and serial monitors. There are also plenty of starter examples already available.

Wokwi [9] is an online (in-browser) IoT device simulator. You can implement some simple and limited approaches, going beyond embedded systems. Note that it is not a distant lab (such as our IOT-OPEN.EU VREL lab [10]) but rather a software simulation of the IoT hardware development boards, so your experience will be limited.
