I like the Dave cad with head.   You can look down to draw but then you can look up and talk to the camera while explaining the drawing, which gives it that personal touch!

I like it, and I think it should be on a new channel so that subscribers will be notified when a new tutorial is released - rather than being notified whenever any new video is released. I don't think that adding a new dedicated channel is dilution. Quite the opposite.

A new channel dedicating to teaching deserves to be separated from the main "off the cuff", "no script, no fear, all opinion" channel.

A point of interest: the Apollo guidance computer was made using 3 input nor gates, two per card, showing how with only one kind of gate all the logic for a computer could be constructed.  This way it was easy to test cards and only one kind of spare card was needed.

They were NOR gates, not OR.

 Dave has hinted that he will be doing a followup video to get more into how that all works, but you can express any Boolean logic expression as only NOR (or only NAND).

Hi there

Nice idea Dave.
What about EEV-U for EEV University ;)
With categories and sub-categories covering the main topics of electronics like analog, digital, uC, control loop, embedded, signal theory and so on?
Tagged beginner, intermadiate, expert?

Keep going on Dave! I found out almost everybody knows and follows you at the office. We like the knowldege sharing, you've got great expertise and we always learn something  - or enjoy the EE entertainement (especially the "sniff sniff ... it smells ...."  :-DD:-+
Regards

rdson

My opinion:
new format: yes, nice to see something on the level of the Fundamentals Fridays
DaveCAD background: yes, much better than boring plain white (and it adds some personal 'branding' if screenshots are sent around the interwebs)
Dave's talking head: meh. personally I don't need it. Perhaps Dave's head could show up when there is an explanation of some special note to make.
Main channel: ok. IMHO it is content that it's fit for the main channel. Maybe start on main channel and wait the  feedback if it has has to be cast out to a separate one.


Regarding the 1st episode: did Dave said a couple of times NAND when meaning AND?

Thanks Dave

I have never had a career in the sort of electronics you (and other here) do for a living, and its mostly fond memories of me doing real electronics as a kid that brings me here.

I really, REALLY liked the format of this video.  It was as educational as I expected but without the clutter and distractions of some of your others.  Please, keep it up and do more like this.  I thought it was great.

I would suggest it has its own channel though - and my name suggestion is "EEVBoardBlog"

Thanks!

Loved the basics. Good for ppl who are starting with electronics like myself. I'd love to see more of the basics like op-amp with real life examples but not complex. I would name these series of tutorials as THE DAVE SCHOOL OF ELECTRONICS [emoji4]


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

If Dave was a slightly more typical Aussie bloke I'm sure that there's a play on beer or utes to be had in the name but alas. So, I offer up "Dave's School of Electronics and Multimeter Canyoning*" (obviously in the vein of "Dr Dobb's Journal of Computer Callisthenics and Orthodonture").

b) People who sign up get what they want every time. This leads to higher sub/view ratios which the Google algorithm really likes. This might help snowball the channel and also get it further up in the rankings than just having it buried in my main channel.

I think you've got your answer there. Us here, we're (well most of us) flexible and will probably follow the content wherever you put it. On the other hand Google isn't flexible.

As far as Picture-in-Picture goes I'm agnostic but I'd make one suggestion if you do go down this route - put the narrator in the bottom right-hand corner.

I don't know why but the test you did above with you in the upper left just looks wrong, and when I thought about it all the professional broadcasts I've ever seen with a narrator PIP or a signing PIP have had it in the bottom right hand. This may just be a convention or there may be a good reason for it that I don't know. All I can say is that the top left just looked wrong.

I do like the clean look of the screen capture, but it's a bit boring not having Dave and his body language in the video. I expect there might be certain topics where the tablet (?) and screen capture offer an advantage, but other than that I would prefer the whiteboard or DaveCad version for a tutorial like this.
However, the new format can be compressed better and is therefore useful for storage.
