Description This course may be used to introduce or reinforce music-reading skills for someone just learning to play an instrument, or the individual lessons can be used to expand on basic music-reading knowledge or to look up any music-notation terms that are still unfamiliar.
Description This course involves the specification, design, and implementation of high-speed DSP and microcontroller-based systems, taking into account cost constraints, available technology, and other factors. In this course, the students will learn about the following topics: advanced C and assembly programming for embedded systems, high-speed PCB design theory, hardware/software interfacing, and approaches to designing practical hardware systems. A major software/hardware design project will be completed in this two-course sequence.
Description “Sound Reasoning” is a web-based, introductory music appreciation course. It offers a new approach to music appreciation for adults, focusing on style-independent concepts. While the course concentrates primarily on Western classical and modern music, the concepts that are introduced apply to music of any style or era. The goal of “Sound Reasoning” is to equip you with questions that you may ask of any piece of music, thereby creating a richer and more comprehensive understanding of music both familiar and unfamiliar. Here are some additional features of the course. 1) ”Sound Reasoning” is completely listening based. No ability to read music is required. 2) The course assumes little or no musical background. A minimum of terminology is invoked. 3) Musical examples are interpolated directly into the text. 4) The course is interactive. A “listening gallery” with exercises follows each module, so that you may practice and refine your listening skills. 5) The modules may be studied in sequence or individually. 6)You may easily print a .pdf of any module..
“Sound Reasoning” is designed as both a stand-alone, self-paced course as well as a supplement to existing university classes. Thanks to Connexions, “Sound Reasoning” is available free of charge twenty-four hours a day in a cross-platform format. “Sound Reasoning” was created thanks to an Access to Artistic Excellence Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and an Innovation Grant from Rice’s Computer and Information Technology Institute. The author wishes to thank Richard Baraniuk, the founder of Connexions; Geneva Henry, Joey King, Katie Cervenka and Elvena Mayo of the Connexions staff; and Jan Odegard and Moshe Vardi of CITI. He wishes to extend his great gratitude to the Connexions technical team with whom he collaborated: Brent Hendricks, Scott di Pasquale, Charlet Reedstrom and Max Starkenburg. He would especially like to thank Elizabeth Gregory and Brian Nelson, who were his primary technical assistants and provided invaluable support. The author welcomes your comments about all aspects of the course, from its contents to its ease-of-use. Please send any correspondence to Associate Professor Anthony Brandt at email@example.com.
You must have the latest version of Macromedia's free Flash plugin to play the musical examples. The course works best using Internet Explorer 6 on Microsoft Windows, or Mozilla on any platform.
Description Basic introduction to microcontroller-based embedded systems development. Includes structured laboratory exercises in the following areas: assembly programming, C language programming, peripheral interfacing, interrupt management, structured programming, task scheduling, simple digital signal processing (DSP), and other related topics. This course assumes no prerequisites and is primarily intended for first and second year engineering students.
Description Ownership, authorship, plagiarism, intellectual property, parody, critique, re-use, credit, reputation, allusion, imitation, patronage, payment, piracy, creativity, originality, borrowing, lending, stealing, quoting, citing, lifting, re-writing, translating, acting, performing, impersonating, collaborating, re-creating, editing, sampling, sharing.
If you can distinguish between all these activities, legally, morally, culturally and historically, then you don't need our class. If on the other hand, you want to know why ancient Romans sampled Virgil so often, or why some plagiarism is art and some is crime, or what could happen to manuscripts in antiquity when they circulated, or why the RIAA is suing thousands of college students, or how Martial and Galen thought about ownership, payment and credit, or how Hollywood does so, or whether Christians should be allowed to "share" their message, then this is your class.
Description Explanations (suitable for any age) of the basic elements of music, with suggested activities for introducing the each concept to children at early elementary school level. The course may be used by instructors not trained in music; all necessary definitions and explanations are included.
Description A combination social studies and music course for children at elementary school level. Some lessons feature music to learn; others introduce interesting aspects of music in other cultures. Individual lessons can be used in any order or left out.
Description The activities in this course are designed for children preschool or elementary school age. Some introduce basic music concepts; others focus on music of a particular culture. All encourage noise and activity, so they make excellent breaks from desk work, but be sure you are not disturbing the class down the hall!
Description Development of real-time digital signal processing (DSP) systems using a DSP microprocessor; several structured laboratory exercises, such as sampling and digital filtering, followed by an extensive DSP project of the student's choice.
Description This course is a demonstration of using the Connexions project to host foreign language content in the context of a DSP lab course. It borrows material from Doug Jones' ECE320 course at UIUC and provides translations of some of the material in the Japanese, Chinese and Thai languages.
