Module 0: Getting Started

Website Tour

Tour stop 0: Terminology

Modules, Topics, and Sections oh my!

Module screenshot

Modules are your main organizational level and can be found on the homepage (see screenshot to the left)

Topics are listed under each module

Tour stop 1

Every module will start with a topic that gives you a short summary of what will be covered in that module and how long the module is expected to take

Executive Summary

  • 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/topic listing). 

Tour stop 2

Inside the opening topic will be a short writeup introducing and motivating the module.  This may be repeated for each topic in a module as well.

Module discussion

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 remaining pieces of the modules will be the topics associated with the module.  Each of these will have their own page and will be linked at the home page AND the menus.  Most topics will have associated quizzes or homework assignments.

Tour stop 4

Every module will also contain information on the associated ethical and responsible AI assignment and the associated project(s).

Tour stop 5

The final part of each topic 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!).
