MOOC materials on IoT, for tutors
If you are a teacher or a tutor, it is a good starting point to develop your own, MOOC course at your university, professional school, institution, using your internal or public platform.
Here you will find all materials enabling you to implement your course quickly. Materials are provided raw: we do target EDX / openEDX and Moodle platforms, yet you may use any other online hosting environment. We do not offer ready exports nor snapshots for the aforementioned platforms, so you have to compose it yourself.
There are for types of content for each course, available for download:
- Course Structure, where we describe in details organisation into the chapters, content type for each section, and we guide you to the related resource files and links (Youtube videos).
- Learning Curves, where we provide complete texts and images presenting what to include in each section. Each chapter contains a structure and content that covers full teleprompter texts for videos, written articles to be put on the course page (usually as HTML) and parts for self-evaluation for students with marked correct answers, eventually accompanied with open questions. From time to time, we suggest using a form of the discussion or presentation (open questions) to let students integrate within the course. Of course, it requires your platform to provide kind of ‘forum’ to implement this feature but including or excluding those sections is absolutely up to you, so if your platform does not offer it, you may use other tools, i.e., like social media to integrate with your platform.
- Course Videos that constitute the core of the course. Videos are hosted via Youtube platform but as “unlisted”. It means you won’t find them when searching, but you may access them for free using direct links. Links are provided in the course structure, and each video is accompanied with manually validated English subtitles. All videos are rendered with 1080p resolution, but accessing the best quality may be automatically limited by Youtube. Once the network congestion or low bandwidth is detected, you and your students may be offered a lower maximum resolution, i.e. 720p, 480p or even lower. All videos contain spoken audio in the English language.
- Video Supplemental PDF files that contain graphics: images, diagrams, also overlayed texts and other important details, that may be not clearly visible or disappear when videos are not being watched in full resolution. We suggest you to providing a link to those materials right under video, to let your student access it quickly during watching. Note, many videos do not have supplementary resource files, refer to the Course Structure Definition File for PDF file names.
Course Structure Definition files, Learning Curves and Supplementary Materials files are available for download, in each course section below.
We suggest to download first the Course Structure Definition file, then related ZIP file that contains details: Learning Curves for each chapter and Video Supplementary Files.
Video files are hosted via our Youtube channel so that you won’t find them here. To simplify access to the videos, our Youtube channel is organised into the channels, so it is easy to access all videos in a row or individually, via links provided in the Structure Definition File.
Currently, we offer public access to the resources to the materials for three courses, marked as:
