The University of Notre Dame will offer its second MOOC (massive open online course) on edX, titled Understanding Wireless: Technology, Economics and Policy, beginning on Monday (May 18).
Understanding Wireless is a survey-style course that offers an opportunity to gain understanding of the technical, regulatory and economic aspects of the mobile wireless revolution and its impact on society. This not-for-credit course is intended for a broad audience, from engineers to business majors to aspiring lawyers, but students will be most comfortable if they are not intimidated by early-college mathematics. The course is entirely free and open to everyone.
Understanding Wireless will address such questions as: How do mobile smartphones and tablets convert digital information to and from electromagnetic signals in the radio frequency spectrum?
