Topic outline

  • Course Home

    The course will start with a lecture on Monday the 26th of October at 13:15 in Teams. Welcome!

    This semester whole course is fully-remote, completely online and no presence at the campus is required. This course is organized for the first time, so all feedback is warmly welcomed and appreciated!

    If you have any questions or comments, please use Teams to do so. Try to use group chats rather than sending direct messages, as it creates a better sense of community and your concern is most likely answered faster.

    • Course Schedule

      The course is designed so that it can be completed independently, at one's own pace. There are no mandatory participation requirements to lectures or exercise debug sessions. Also, all the exercises, quizzes and project work info are available from the beginning of the course so you can complete them at your own pace, as long as the exercises are done by the weekly deadline. Feel free to watch teaching videos ahead of time and move to next week's material if you wish at some point.

      Every week, there will be
      1. Teams Lecture (Mondays 13:15-15:00) topic of the week, exercises, practicalities, and last week's feedback
      2. Teaching Videos (Independent study)
      3. Weekly Quiz (Independent study)
      4. Exercise Debug (Wednesdays 13:15-15:00)
      5. Exercise and Quiz Deadline (Fridays 23:59)
      There will be five consecutive weeks like this, followed by three weeks of independent project work, which will be presented at the end of the course in a "virtual mini-gala" (on Wednesday 9.12. at 10:15 in Teams).

      Project work Deadline: Friday 4.12. 23:59!
