Module 0: Course Tour
Tour stop 1
Every module will start with an executive summary that gives you a very short summary of what will be covered in that module and how long the module is expected to take
- Topics: There will be a list of topics for each module
- Length: The module will say how many weeks it should take to complete
- Assigned chapters: Assigned reading will be listed here
- Project: If there is a project associated with the module, the summary will mention it (but it gets its own section below).
Tour stop 2
The next piece of each module will be a short writeup motivating the topic. This is typically a few paragraphs.
Each module will have a short writeup with motivation and a broad overview of what you will do in the module. It will tie to other modules as needed.
Tour stop 3
The third part of each module will be the main topics that will be covered in that module. They are shown in a series of colored blocks, organized by subtopic.
Topics for Module 1
Topic 1: Why color bubbles for topics
Each bubble holds the videos and text and assignments for that subtopic. I used color bubbles to group subtopics visually.
Topic 2: lots of topics
Each module will have 3-4 bubbles of subtopics
Topic 3: fun topics
Each one should be fun to learn about!
Tour stop 4
After the main topics, if there is a project associated with the module, there will be information about the project.
The project assignment will appear here
Tour stop 5
The final part of each module will be a suggested schedule. While it is not required that you follow this exactly, the intent is that you can follow the schedule and not fall behind (a danger in online classes!).
