Multimedia Systems

Description

These are the materials for the Multimedia Systems course run in ECS. Multimedia Systems is taught rather differently than most courses. Although there is a lecture series, this is to support the main activity - the organisation and participation is a student conference. The coursework is to produce a short paper on a chosen topic to be presented as a paper, poster or demonstration at a course conference to be held at the end of the semester. The process of producing and reviewing the coursework and then participating in the conference has been designed to be the means by students cover the full range of material associated with Multimedia Systems.
