Support of Distance Learning Version of Course:
The master timetable can be found in the 3rd year course catalogue.
Review Lectures: Two per week.
Supervised Lab Sessions: From week 2 in Room 3.D02 (Forest Hills). Students will be assigned to one lab session per week:
This course will be simultaneously delivered to resident 3rd year informatics undergraduates and distance learning MSc students. Lecture videos are available online (see below). The review lectures will be streamed via the LEARN system allowing distrance students to ask questions (using 'Collaborate'). The assignments will follow the same schedule and approach as for the local course. Assignments will be remotely assessed at a convenient time for our demonstrators and the student.
Distance students are required to purchase a student MATLAB license and a Lego EVO kit for the assignments. Details about the Lego EVO Kits can be found here. The cost is about £400 and it is used for 4 weeks.
Material specific to the Distance Learning course can be found here.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: This course is not taught by the traditional lectures. Instead, IVR uses an Inverted Classroom method. This means that you will have about 15 hours of video to watch in your own time ('Lecture Videos'). This material is assessible. There are still 2 full class meetings each week ('Review Lectures'). We will discuss any questions that you either suggest in advance or raise in class on the day. Here is an Introduction to how the course is intended to be followed.
Lecture videos, associated readings and associated Matlab are hosted on the University's LEARN system. You will need an EASE account to access this materials. To access the materials:
There will be two pieces of assessed coursework carrying equal weight. (20% each)
The practicals are done in teams of two or three. For each assignment a demonstration of the results will be required and a single, joint report is to be submitted by one of the students in each team.Exam (60%)
