From The Emerging Circuits and Computation Group at ITU
- July 2nd To see your grades click here.
- July 1st Updated Final Exam Rules:
- Considering the inefficiency of using Zoom, Exam will be held offline (take-home exam). Zoom is not used!
- Considering that there might be a problem in Ninova system, along with Ninova link final exam will be shared with another link in this web page, and also students can email their exam sheets directly to email@example.com, or they can submit to Ninova. For submitting the exams, I suggest Ninova since emails can be filtered or due to size limitations they might be rejected; students take their own risks for such problems.
- Exam starts at 12:00 on July 2nd.
- Exam is open-source with the duration of 2,5 hours that includes writing the answers to the answer sheets in a legible way and then uploading them to the system as a single PDF file.
- Before the exam 10 minutes before at 11:50, I will open a Zoom meeting to have your questions.
- June 8th Final exam rules are as follows:
- Exam will be held online (live) for 2-3 hours; your camera and microphone (if needed) should be ON during the exam.
- Exam will be a classic written exam and same for all sections taking the course.
- Exam duration to be given to you (between 2-3 hours) includes writing the answers to the answer sheets in a legible way and then uploading them to the system as a single PDF file.
- In the course of the exam, a student may be asked to take a break from the exam and answer our questions or show us where they are with their cameras, provided that it does not exceed 3 minutes.
- During the exam, the student should not change or leave the exam location.
- May 10th The fourth homework has been posted that is due 22/05/2020 (before 16:30).
- Apr. 26th The third homework has been posted that is due 04/05/2020 (before 16:30).
- Apr. 11th The second homework has been posted that is due 20/04/2020 (before 16:30).
- Apr. 5th Due to size limitations in Ninova, we have decided to post all lecture videos under Google Drive. Check google account details in Ninova.
- Apr. 4th Considering that we have 80+ students, using Zoom for lectures does not seem to feasible; instead we post videos for lectures in Ninova. However, we plan to use Zoom in Ninova for question-answer sessions with up to 20 students. We will make related announcements.
- Apr. 4th Syllabus and weekly course plan have been updated, please check.
- Apr. 4th Lecture notes of all weeks have been posted.
- Mar. 31th Due to Coronavirus, we are transforming to online education. For this purpose we use Ninova with some videos. For the the rest of the class, we only have homeworks and the final exam; no midterm, no quiz. Check announcements here and in Ninova.
- Feb. 24th The first homework has been posted that is due 12/03/2019 (before the lecture).
- Feb. 10th Instead of 8:30, we start lectures at 9:00 for convenience of the students' attendance.
- Feb. 10th As a simulation tool, Spice is required for homeworks. Among different Spice-based programs, LTspice is a good and free choice; you can download it by clicking here.
