edX Free Visual & Performing Arts English BerkleeX EdX Engineering Music

We are in the midst of an explosion of musical creativity as a result of technologies that allow you to record music using your laptop or tablet. Whether you are a singer, music producer, audio engineer, or just someone that likes to make good music with vocals, it is essential to have an understanding of vocal technologies for music production.

This music production course provides learners with insight into the voice itself, the recording environment, microphones, equalization, compressors, A-D-A conversion, the listening environment, human perception, natural widening concepts, artificial widening concepts, reverb, delay, and more. Grammy-award winning record producer, audio engineer, recording artist, and educator Prince Charles Alexander offers students a first-hand opportunity to learn the technologies behind vocal production, so that you can enhance your music productions with the most compelling and effective vocal tracks.

How does cellular technology enable massive surveillance? Do users have rights against surveillance? How does surveillance affect how we use cellular and other technologies? How does it affect our democratic institutions? Do you know that the metadata collected by a cellular network speaks volumes about its users? In this course you will explore all of these questions while investigating related issues in WiFi and Internet surveillance. The issues explored in this course are at the intersection of networking technology, law, and sociology and will appeal to anyone interested in the technical, political, and moral questions inherent in the use of information networks. The course will include broad overviews for the novice, while pointing to the detailed resources needed for those engaged in the development of corporate or governmental policies.


  • Is there a required textbook?

    • No. A list of supplemental resources, including textbooks, will be provided. The textbook, Cellular Convergence and the Death of Privacy, is optional.

  • How much time will I spend on the course during the week?

    • Expect to spend 4-8 hours per week. This depends on a number of factors, including how much you want to engage with the material and the level of understanding you desire.

  • Do I need to have taken an electrical and computer engineering course before?

    • No. Though there will be discussion of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) ideas, the professor will assume no prior ECE training.

  • I am not familiar with U.S. or European history but I am interested in how the law regarding cell phones works. Can I take this course?

    • Yes. I will have relevant links to helpful background material for each section that should make it possible for those with no knowledge of U.S. or European history to take the class.

  • Is this class about building a network?

    • This class is primarily about how historical privacy law has made it possible for current information technologies to be used to collect data and conduct surveillance rather than how to build a network. While the course will touch on important engineering developments and information technology uses, this class will focus more on the intersection of networking technology, law, and sociology. If you want to know how cell phones collect data and why this data can be used in court, this is the class for you.

  • Will certificates be awarded?

    • Yes. If you complete the work and achieve a passing grade in the course, you can earn a Honor Code Certificate, which indicates that you have completed the course successfully. Certificates will be issued by edX under the name of CornellX, designating the institution from which the course originated.

  • What are the learning outcomes of this course?

    • Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

      • Explain the basic function of cellular telephone networks, WiFi, and other networking technologies.

      • Explain the evolution of privacy rights through the U.S. constitution's 4th amendment, particularly as applied to content and context surveillance

      • Identify types of cryptography used to secure wired and wireless networks.

      • Consider the implications of different forms of surveillance and how they impact an individual's privacy in society.

      • Evaluate contemporary surveillance and security decisions/ laws.

      • Increase their ability to apply ethical thinking and judgment to a wide range of privacy and surveillance situations.

      • Interpret how using complex and powerful technologies to collect personal data can impact individuals, corporations, markets, and societies.

edX Free English Communication EdX Engineering Science TsinghuaX

In this communications course, you will learn how to properly write a paper in English, cite references and give attributions. You will also learn how to choose research topics and write proposals for research funding.

It is increasingly important that new scholars and students become familiar with, and abide by the international standard when writing papers, submitting them for publication, dealing with editors, and applying for funding. Above all, knowing how to conduct a clear English presentation is an essential requirement for research papers being accepted.

In this course, along with learning best practices for writing a paper, you will also learn about “conventions and protocols” of international academia and the cultural differences between East and West.
