Student Videos Project

The goal of HKN’s video project is to create a Khan Academy esque video series oriented towards the EECS curriculum. Currently there are two different directions this project is taking.

Project 1: Open Ended Videos

The purpose of Project 1 is to provide videos that supplement class material. These videos should be specific and short so a person can find precisely what is being looked for, in the context they need, while not being bogged down by verbose explanations. An example of a “specific” topic would be KMAPS from CMPN 270.

You are not limited by this definition of the project, you can propose any video you would like. For example, AC vs. DC, Arduino tutorials, Tesla vs. Edison, the future of CMOS technologies or whatever your heart desires. However, since this is a new project, it will be better to focus on the introductory courses like EE 210 and CMPEN 270 as these are courses students look for the most help in.

If you would like to help with this project, please email us at etakappanu.pennstate@gmail.com with a topic or use the form provided on this page. For this project you will write a script consisting of the following.

  1. Introduction to theory
  2. A worked-out example

Once this is complete we will work together to create the video.

Project 2: EE 210 Lab Videos

The purpose of Project 2 is to provide supplementary lab material specific to each EE210 lab. These videos will introduce new lab topics, theory, components, tips and the real-world application of what is covered in lab. This process has consisted of four steps. The first two steps involved reading the labs and deciding what information in each lab was important/new but these steps are done. The final two steps are detailed below.

  1. Using our notes on what is “new” and “important” to each lab and write scripts
  2. We will create the videos using the scripts from step 3

If you would like to help with this project, email us at etakappanu.pennstate@gmail.com with a topic or use the form provided on the page. For this project you will write a script consisting of the following.

  1. Theory (of components [i.e. op amp], physical application [i.e. hook up on breadboard])
  2. Explanations of ideas/theory relevant to the lab (i.e. loading effect, frequency response)
  3. Tips (What are common errors in theory or physical application)
  4. Real world usages of components and ideas

Once this is complete we will work together to create the video.
