Soldering Tutorials

This is my third year of lecturing a microcontrollers subject at university. One of the labs not closely related to microcontrollers, but a useful skill for electronic engineers to have is soldering. This year I decided to go away from individual soldering demonstrations for each student at their desks and go for the YouTube approach.
The through-hole video shows a very standard through hole approach, whereas the SMT video shows a "Tack-and-hold" approach which uses only a matchstick as the specialised tool.
