Due to the pandemic, the vast majority of courses taught in the second half of 2020 proceeded online. Professor Patrick Schaumont from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) will discuss the conversion of a Real-time Digital Signal Processing (DSP) course with traditional in-person hands-on labs to a hybrid (in-person and online) setting. This senior-level undergraduate course is built around the development and testing of DSP software. In the online version of the course, students use a small TI microcontroller LaunchPad™ development kit and a USB oscilloscope, and they work in online teams. He will describe the lab projects and highlight the mechanisms that enable the students to collaborate on labs. He will provide early feedback from students from the first offering of the modified course, and conclude with a list of planned improvements.
