Jonathan Valvano, professor at The University of Texas at Austin informs us of his upcoming embedded systems course.
Myself and Professor Yerraballi are teaching a course this semester in collaboration with edX called UT.6.01x Embedded Systems: Shape the world. It is an online class (aka MOOC) introduction to embedded systems. The class starts Jan 22 2014 and is unique in that it requires hardware, we believe that embedded systems cannot be taught without hardware, thus we are innovating and creating the first online class with a physical world lab component.
Students will need either a Stellaris LaunchPad or a Tiva LaunchPad. All the projects developed in this course will run on either of these MCU boards.
While there is a fee for those requesting certification of completion, it is free for those who wish to audit the course.
