Excel to build and training a single artificial neurone

Two videos produced within the Department of Computing, University of Northampton, Uk on using Microsoft Excel to simulate a single artificial neurone, as a step towards building a neural network.

In the first video, Excel is used to build and show the principles of a single neurone.

In the second video the ideas from the video above are now extended to show, in a relatively simple way, how a single neurone can be trained.

What would be interesting to find a way to build this idea into a simple neural network. Comments and ideas are very welcome.
