Ozobot is a tiny, but practical robot, which makes it a great first robot. Ozobot is very easy to start with, and what's even better - it doesn't take any room at all! 

If you know nothing about building a robot, if you have never programmed in your life, and maybe even fear electronic toys a little bit, then this course is just for you.

The course is divided into 5 main sections - we start by helping Ozobot out of its box and taking a look at the different gadgets included.

Next, we will learn to control Ozobot with markers, after which we will head on to play with apps and conclude with the basics of programming Ozobot.

We will also take a look at what fun games to make for Ozobot by ourselves and what has the manufacturer come up with. The more you learn about Ozobot, the more you will start to like it! 

Who is the target audience?
  • Beginners of all ages without previous robotics experience
  • Robotics enthusiast without previous experience with Ozobot

Hi, I'm Janika. I have a masters degree in economics from the Technical University of Tallinn, Estonia and I just started my doctoral studies at the Tallinn University, investigating how learning with robots will help children get better results in math and in other STEAM fields.

I started working for myself at age 18 by creating an accounting software company. After selling the successful business, I moved to the online educating world and built up the biggest Estonian language Youtube Channel LASTEKAS (1 M views per month) for toddlers by offering them more than 1000 cartoons in their native language.

Three years ago I decided that it's time to start educating adults and parents about educational robotics. During these years I have trained more than 2000 kindergarten and elementary teachers via physical workshops conducted with different robotics platforms. 

This year I felt that now it is the right time to start sharing my knowledge internationally.  There will be series of courses at Udemy about educational robotics to help adults better understand skills like robotics and programming, both needed in the nearest future at almost every workplace.

Beside this, I conduct workshops around the Europe, explaining with the help of educational robotics kits, what to expect from robots and what does "interaction with the robot" mean.

I really hope that with these courses I can bring you more confidence and joy that are needed when starting thinking about how the collaboration with the robots will look like.

See you in the course!
