Yes I Like the Beginners Level material as we all are beginners exam point of view

I also need to know about some module like GSM module, digital LDR module, Joystick shield module robotic controller ets and evean some electronic components

I am a beginner that is quickly moving up a small notch, but I still rewatch many videos. A few videos on simple concepts like how capacitors work, how to design a circuit, how to properly solder would be a great addition to the beginner classes. 

That being said I would love to also see things like Tensor Flow. And how to do more advanced topics.

So to answer the poll question I think the labeling is a great idea and continue to do playlists to help group concepts together.

Also, breaking up a concept into multiple videos is great. Where you build upon a previous videos concept. Example... 1. Power your MCU with simple battery. 2. Using rechargeable battery with different options. 3. Managing that battery and dialing in discharge and longevity.

Whats easiest for you.  I don't believe seperate would necessarily make it easier on YouTube.  One YouTube channel (if that is what it is called) would be sufficient.  Stating in the title that the project is Starter Level would help in the YouTube search.  Or in your emails have the projects listed.  Starter Level Projects and Advanced Level Projects.  Then in YouTube one could do a search for which level they prefer to work on.  That way the individual can choose which ever level they wish to watch.

I am a beginner in the sense that I have just recently taken up the hobby, but not a typical beginner because I was trained as an electronics technician in the military and then worked as a civilian tech for two years after my discharge. However, that was over 50 years ago. So now I am facing the challenge of starting anew: what do I need to know to get started? What tools and equipment do I need? What kind of a dedicated workspace to I need to create for myself? What components should I buy and from where? 

There are many, many YouTube channels with information about electronics in addition to The DroneBot Workshop. I just searched YouTube for "Electronics for Beginners" and there are numerous existing YouTube channels that address everything from what electronic components do, to what is the minimum tools you need, to how to build simple circuits, and on and on. So while I admire the quality of the DroneBot Workshop videos, I'm not sure that another channel for beginners is really necessary.

On the other hand, a single video for beginners who come to the DroneBot Workshop channel that would recommend some of the other channels that provide the best support for beginners ( and explain why these are good choices) might be worthwhile as there are so many options. 

One thing that I personally think is important is a solid knowledge of basic analog and digital theory. Many YouTube channels that address this are for electrical engineering students; probably too theoretical and mathematical for beginners. The best thing I have found are the videos from an instructor at a junior college who teaches electronics to students who want to become electronic technicians. You can find them here: https://www.youtube.com/user/bigbadtech. So if you want to brush up on your electronics theory,  the Jim Pytel Big Bad Tech videos are at a level that doesn't require math beyond algebra and basic trig (for the AC stuff) and if you prefer online video instruction to text-based instruction I don't think you can do better than his analog and digital YouTube series.
