FAQ

I don’t speak Chinese, can I learn the course? Only the spoken language is Chinese. All the other materials are in English. There are many ways of learning this wonderful course for learners without Chinese background. Use the English subtitles, which are provided with the video player of the course webpage. Download the mp4 files and subtitles and use your favorite video player to watch the video. Download the dubbing mp3 files. When playing the video in the course webpage, turn off the volume in the video player of the course webpage and play the mp3 files with your favorite player at the same time with proper volume. The dubbing mp3 files are synchronized with the mp4 files. It’s almost the same feeling watching a foreign movie with the English dubbing. What are the textbooks and reference books for this course? Nothing! The course is free. Will the text of the lectures be available? There is no textbook requirement for this course. The handouts distributed every week are critical. The following books are references ranked in the order of our lecturers’ preference: Agarwal and Lang, Foundations of Analog and Digital Electronic Circuits, Morgan Kaufmann, 2005 Ulaby and Maharbiz, Circuits, 2009, NTS Press Nilsson and Riedel, Electric Circuits 9th, Prentice Hall, 2010 Alexander and Sadiku, Fundamentals of Electric Circuits 5th, McGraw-Hill, 2012 Hayt, Kemmerly, and Durbin, Engineering Circuit Analysis 8th, McGraw-Hill, 2011 Do I need to watch the lectures live? No. You can watch the lectures at your leisure. What is the grading breakdown? 20% quizzes 30% exercises 50% final exam How can I get the certificate? Your final score must be no less than 50. How is the content arranged for this course? Week 0 is for the pre-study or review of the knowledge in calculus and linear algebra, which will be used in this course. Week 1-7 are on resistive circuit analysis. Week 8-10 are on time domain analysis of the dynamic circuits. Week 11-14 are on steady state analysis of the dynamic circuits with sinusoidal excitations. Week 15 is for self-review and group discussion. Week 16 is for exam. What is the textbook of the course? The handouts distributed every week are critical. The following books are references ranked in the order of our lecturers’ preference: Agarwal and Lang, Foundations of Analog and Digital Electronic Circuits, Morgan Kaufmann, 2005 Ulaby and Maharbiz, Circuits, 2009, NTS Press Nilsson and Riedel, Electric Circuits 9th, Prentice Hall, 2010 Alexander and Sadiku, Fundamentals of Electric Circuits 5th, McGraw-Hill, 2012 Hayt, Kemmerly, and Durbin, Engineering Circuit Analysis 8th, McGraw-Hill, 2011 Does the course contain the simulation? Sure. The simulation is frequently used in the teaching videos and the exercises. The company National Instruments is so kind as to distribute free licenses for student version of the simulation software Multisim with six weeks of valid period, which is enough for your study. After you register the course, the downloading page will be provided in the course webpage in week 1. I’ve learned the course of circuits. I’m only interested in some parts of the course. How can you help me? We provide a very helpful tool in the syllabus of the course. While listing the concepts, tools, and applications of circuits with the procedure of the course, we provide a Flash embedded in the webpage. You can click the interesting knowledge point. It will automatically generate a learning path accordingly. You are encouraged to learn through this path, which is quick and sufficient.
