Digital Storytelling - A Pedagogical Method to Present the Course Learnings for Life <3
Writing has always been a really therapeutic activity for me personally. Now, I am writing this blog post about Digital Storytelling assignment that I trialed in my Psychology in Human-Technology course in it's first ever online implementation. The trial was succesful - students created 64 stories, out of which I have selected some to be shared with you.
Coming soon - enroll now: Advanced Topics on ASIC Implementation (5cr, periods I-II)
The Computing Sciences unit organizes a workshop course on physical design of digital integrated circuits in periods I-II. The course is aimed at students who are interested in pursuing a career in this field in the industry, or professionals who need state-of-the-art digital integrated circuit design skills in their work.
Cross-Compiling Rust to Run on PYNQ-Z1
The PYNQ-Z1 is a versatile hardware platform used within many of our courses. Using xsct, the Xilinx Command Line Tool, one can run software on PYNQ without an operating system (OS) - a method known as bare metal. We repurposed these tools to create an executable from Rust code instead of the usual C. This will allow students to practice writing drivers and embedded software in a modern programming language.
