I have made a couple of user manauls/guides for the Beaglebone which can be used by hobbyists/developers/beginners to get started with the Beaglebone. Teachers can also use them as a part of their course if they want.
1.GPIO Programming on Beaglebone.
2.Toggling LED on Beaglebone.
3.Using a Push button and LED with the Beaglebone
More guides to come soon...
