Title: Fundamentals of Digital Image and Video Processing

From: Northwestern University

Host: Coursera

When: March 31st

What: This MOOC course will cover the fundamentals of image and video processing.  It provides a mathematical framework to describe and analyze images and videos as two- and three-dimensional signals in the spatial, spatio-temporal, and frequency domains. Not only will attendees learn the theory behind fundamental processing tasks including image/video enhancement, recovery, and compression—but they will also learn how to perform these key processing tasks in practice using state-of-the-art techniques and tools.

Title: Robot Mechanics, Planning, and Control Part 1

From: Seoul National University

Host: edX

When: March 28th

What: This MOOC course provides a rigorous introduction to hand grasp analysis, kinematics of open and closed chains, trajectory generation, motion planning, and control of robots. The emphasis is not on the latest research trends and technological innovations in robotics, content that risks becoming obsolete in a matter of years. Rather, the focus is on learning the fundamental concepts and core principles that underlie robotics as a scientific discipline.

Title: Statistics in Education for Mere Mortals

From: Canvas

Host: Canvas

When: Available now

What: This short MOOC course will provide a hands-on introduction to statistics used in educational research and evaluation. Participants will learn statistical concepts, principles, and procedures by building Excel spreadsheets from scratch in a guided learning approach using short video-based tutorials. The course is designed primarily for two audiences: 1) educational professionals who would like to be more informed about how to compute basic statistics and how to use them intelligently in their work; and 2) first-year doctoral students who want a short and friendly introduction (or brush up) to basic statistics before taking full graduate-level statistics courses.

Title: Teaching Online: Reflections in Practice

From: Kirkwood Community College

Host: Canvas

When: Available now

What: This MOOC discusses the challenge of designing and facilitating online courses with a diverse student population. This course invites your critical reflection on the methods of online instruction; beliefs and potential bias of the online learner; policies and rules and how they align with course objectives; tone and the purpose of communication. We’ve collected readings and experiences of practice from online instructors and students to provide a foundation for discussion. The decisions they have made will help us make similar or, upon reflection, different choices for ourselves and our students. Resource materials will be primarily open web readings and videos. Participants will be asked to collaborate, share reflections, and provide guided feedback to other participants.

Title: Web Application Architectures

From: The University of New Mexico

Host: Coursera

When: Available now

What: Learn how to build and deploy modern web application architectures—applications that run over the internet, in the “cloud,” using a browser as the user interface during this MOOC. Attendees will consider the fundamental design patterns and philosophies associated with modern web application architectures, along with their major components.
