Lecture materials on IoT, for tutors
If you are a teacher or a tutor, it is a good starting point to develop your own, classical course at your university, professional school, prepare a short summer course for your K12 pupils and so on.
Generally, we suggest to base your course on the Introduction to the IoT coursebook’s content, but we provide even more!
Below there is a ready set of DLP materials in downloadable PDF format, to let you quickly start preparing your own content or just use ours. Study material is organised into eight lectures. Note, content delivered via those files is a shortened, starting point for your oral presentations for the audience. It won’t replace nor substitute the speaker, itself.
We suggest about 15h (1-2ECTS) for the Bachelors level module, using provided materials “as is”. Please note, those materials do not cover the full scope of the IoT topics, as presented in the Introduction to the IoT book.
You can download the PDF files for lectures 1 through 8 (B.Sc. level), here:
- Lecture 1. Introduction to the IoT
- Lecture 2. Getting Familiar with Hardware – Development Boards
- Lecture 3. Getting Familiar with Hardware – Sensors
- Lecture 4. Getting Familiar with Hardware – Actuators and Outputs
- Lecture 5. Getting Familiar with Software – Introduction to the IoT programming
- Lecture 6. IoT Networking
- Lecture 7. Introduction to the IoT Security
- Lecture 8. Introduction to the User Interfaces and Natural Language Processing in IoT
Along with lectures, there are labs that accompany theoretical course on IoT. Students implement number of software IoT solutions for the sensor network. Labs use following equipment: ESP8266 D1 R2 development board + DHT11 sensor + Arduino LCD Shield 2×16. Detailed labortory instructions are generated directly from our DokuWiki, so it may take a minute or so, to deliver latest PDF to you.
