The concepts taught by this videos can be shown in half the time. In a video you are even annoyed with program debugging!
Also, I would like to see more about what you can do with arduino. Just showing how to use leds is a little simplistic.
But it gives you a nice introduction, hence 3 stars. I would have called this course "Brief introduction to Arduino".
