Internet of Things

Internet of Things,

It is hard to imagine life without your Smartphone – you have come to rely on it so much – for your work; to stay in touch with family and friends; to capture and share those special moments; to find your way around in a new neighborhood. Did you ever wonder how and when all this happened? Or how and when GPS sensors came to be in your cell phone? In this course, we will explore the convergence of multiple disciplines leading to todays’ Smartphones. You will learn about the birth and evolution of Telephony Networks, Broadcast Networks (TV and Radio) and Consumer Electronics. We will discuss the impact of Internet, (multimedia) content, smartphones and apps on everyday lives. We will then look at how this emerging platform called the Internet of Things – wherein billions and trillions of devices communicating with each other and “the cloud” – could enable unprecedented, innovative products and services. Take this course if you want to understand what great new advances in mobile-enabled products will be coming our way! Learning Goals: This course provides a core grounding in how science and technology have developed to enable the Internet of Things – in a way appropriate for any learner. For those interested in developing further hands-on expertise in designing and developing for the Internet of Things, this course will provide a context to the discoveries and converging technologies that will springboard the next round of innovations. After completing this course, you will be able to: 1. Compare how the telephone system works (that is, peer-to-peer networks) with how media delivery works (that is, broadcast/multicast networks). 2. Explain the tradeoffs between circuit switched networks (that is, dedicated resources) and packet switched networks (that is, shared resources). 3. Tell interesting stories about key innovations that transformed the communications, entertainment and consumer electronics industries. 4. Explain how email, YouTube, SMS, etc. work. 5. Find resources for those wishing to do more of a “deep-dive” into the above topics.

What people are saying

internet of things

This is very good course to understand how we reach to Internet of Things.Only one suggestion we can reduce the time in to the circuit switched history.

Very good approach to the internet of things, a lot of curious facts and "how we get here" facts.

The world should know that the Internet of Things would not be possible were it not for a myriad of large, and small, steps in the last century.

A great historical overview of technological development that led up to the establishment of Internet of Things.

内容详实而且深入浅出,基本涉及了网络基础、TCPIP、CS和PS和应用。课件整体显得短小但精致实用,价格实惠,因此给予四星的评价。 This course is a refresher and provides a High Level overview of IoT and its history as advertised While this course is well organized and descriptive, it barely touches the Internet of Things technologies.

Great introduction to technologies involved in Internet of Things,Instructors are passionate about teaching.

Gives a solid foundation for the internet of things course.

very interesting

A few links were broken in the content, still able to get the content and able to do a search to find the info that was unavailable.Overall very interesting and sets up the remainder of the course well.

Just great Very interesting course starting from the history of digital communication to our time.

it's very usefull Very interesting historical references and the framing of the IoT story around the convergence of technologies was well received by me.

very interesting!!

thumbs up, Initially gets very boring but at the end gives you more information about where to orient yourself, some useful information, great Instructors While the last module of this course is very interesting and kept with the specialization, the first 5 modules are a waste of time for the most part.

Very interesting history if telephone technology.

too much

best course Focused a little too much on telephone history, though some was interesting.

It is informative, but there are many basics that were not covered well & there was a lot of information that was not that interesting (like too much history) Very enjoyable course.

Too much theory and history in the course, no practical applications.

Too much focusing on history of telephony and only little focus on IoT.

going back

The starting lecture are like going back in time and reading/learning about people who made difference in the world of networking.

May be make it the 1st module, with other modules going back for a brief historical overview In itself interesting content, structure was difficult to follow and the history - in my humble view - was going back too far into the past whereas more recent developments where only touched at the surface, quality of slides was poor.
