EduLabs is a new community platform for academics to take advantage of, and contribute to, free open-access Computer Engineering and Computer Science related curriculum content to make teaching easier and more relevant to the burgeoning semiconductor industry. EduLabs is at the start of an exciting journey and invites you to get involved by:
In other words, we encourage you to contribute in multiple ways. You can comment on existing resources, submit individual modules, lab exercises or even an entire course. The key principle is that teaching academics will be able to build their own curriculum by ‘picking and mixing’ resources from various content sets – in combination with what they have already.
Simply write to email@example.com to get the conversation started. One of the community moderators will then get in touch about next steps.
Academics teaching courses in Computer Science and Computer Engineering related subjects face many pressures in creating and maintaining high-quality curriculum resources, not least the pace of change in the semiconductor industry.
To make things easier, Arm Education has chosen to make its Education Kit materials freely available in the public domain without the need for registration on a new collaborative education platform called EduLabs, hosted by the University of Southampton.
The aim of EduLabs is not only to be an open education repository but also a collaborative space where academics can contribute their own material, modify/adapt what is uploaded by others and identify issues by way of contextual comments (for instance at a certain point in a video).
Neither Arm Education nor the University of Southampton are “in charge” – it is a genuine community initiative, currently hosted by the university, welcoming collaboration from around the world.
EduLabs therefore welcomes all manner of contributions that could help teachers, for example but not restricted to:
