This material gives a good introduction to a number of underlying technologies and ideas behind The Internet of things, and addresses its evolution towards an Internet of Everything.
Type of Material:
I believe the material is too long to be used in-class, although watching it could be recommended as individual homework.
PC, tablet, mobile device
Identify Major Learning Goals:
The main purpose of the material is to provide an introduction on The Internet of Everything, whilst discussing its enabling technologies and developments.
Target Student Population:
The presentation includes many technical terms but they are normally introduced to a level that makes this material accessible to most groups.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Basic know how about Internet, Data communication and computer networks
+ Accessible to most groups.
+ Gives background to the concepts that are mentioned in the presentation.
+ Good use of diagrams to illustrate some of the technologies/stacks.
+ Clear language and explanations.
- The video description could include some reference links for people who are interested in understanding more about individual aspects of what is covered.
- The topic is evolving very quickly, so it is possible this presentation misses some important new developments soon.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
+ The material is a presentation, so it can be used in preparation for the topic.
+ Covers a good range of underlying technologies, so it could be used to consolidate prior acquired knowledge.
+ The video is not short and does not have partitions, but its watching can of course be sectioned and students at different levels can use different speeds.
+ The presentation is available on Youtube, hence it is widely available.
- The video is relatively long and is not partitioned so it is not suitable to be played within a lecture (in my opinion)
- For the same reasons it may make it less appealing to some groups of students to watch it fully at home.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
+ The video is easily available.
+ The audio is clear.
+ Good use of visual aids, namely diagrams. Usability is high.
+ Since it is on Youtube, users can change speed, rewind, etc.
- In its format, it does not allow links to be clicked.
- The available captions are only the ones automatically generated by Youtube, so they may not always be accurate.
