Parallax BS2 Homework Board - and a course idea

Many of my students in the LED classes have requested a class in basic microcontrollers, in their case with an eye towards using PWM to make LED's light levels undulate gracefully, as well as operate other interesting devices and mechanisms. The board in the link above is the most likely one I'd use for this class.

Right now I am working on the plan for the class, but it will most likely be a 6 week course, focusing on:
Introduction to the world of microcontrollers (MCUs)
Introduction to PBASIC, the language used to program the BS2 MCU
Relay connections and programming
Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)
R/C Servo connections and programming
Stepper motor connections and programming

Let me know how this sounds, and if there's anything else you'd like to see covered.
