|ECE594: Internet Computing and
Winter Quarter 2000
Enrollment Limit: 15
ECE594 is an experimental course on Internet and Digital TV technologies. The course will cover the key technologies that enable the Internet and Digital TV and will also ask you to develop new technologies to experiment distributed lectures. This course will be co-taught by professor Edward Chang at UCSB and professor Pat Hanrahan at Stanford University via an Internet2 link. The iRoom at Stanford and the ECE conference room (room #2162) at UCSB will be connected with a high-speed (20 Mbps) Internet2 link. We plan to set up only very basic AV equipment at the start of the quarter. The students enrolled in the class will participate in projects that enhance the quality of the lectures. This is one of the first distributed classroom projects that is being experimented.
ECE594 is a project course with about nine lectures, including
guest speakers from Intel, TIVO, WebTV, RealMedia
(at Stanford), and NEC (at UCSB).
The course will meet twice a week:
Monday 2pm to 3:50pm at Engineering-1 #2162 and
Wednesday 2pm to 3pm at Phelps #1437.
On Mondays, we will conduct joint-lectures with Stanford. On Wednesdays we will conduct local lectures and discuss course projects.
