Artificial Intelligence

Module 0: Welcome and Course Tour


Welcome to our online offering Artificial Intelligence (AI)! This course is being offered simultaneously through OU Online and to OU students on campus as a regular online class.  

I assume you have questions about expectations and how class will run. Since this course is online and asynchronous, I want to be sure you understand how it will be run right away.  Given the last few years of pandemic, you may be used to online and asynchronous classes or you may still be adjusting to them.  Either way, I want to be sure you are successful! 

Note that all of the course material is being hosted by the NSF AI Institute for Trustworthy AI in Weather, Climate, and Coastal Oceanography, though OU students will access it via canvas.  This enables the material to be available to anyone outside of OU as well, which is part of the educational outreach of the NSF institute.
