This is a nonstop virtual course: you can start the course anytime you want (during the semester) and return your work (a learning report and a summarising video) any time you want (before the semester ends).
This is a fully virtual course. This course suits very well for students who are exploring potential (or current) topic for their thesis.
Some starting points (links) are provided through the learning environment. You need to listen presentations about state-of-the-art technology and its applications. You need to pick virtual lectures (webinars) or participate courses offered by your company or other organisations (e.g. through MOOCs such as Udemy or Coursera) so that the total amount of work (listening presentations) is approximately 32 hours.
