To whom it may concern: free Coursera course starting tomorrow (February 3rd) - Fundamentals of Audio and Music Engineering: Part 1 Musical Sound & Electronics

Link to the course page.

Description from Coursera.org: This 6-week course is for students who are interested in learning the basic concepts of sound & acoustics and signals & electronics as they relate to music. The goal is for students to understand the basic concepts and principles of musical acoustics and electronics and to learn how equipment such as electric guitars, amplifiers, and loudspeakers are designed and operate. Students are encouraged to put the theory into practice by building a simple guitar practice amplifier. The course employs high-school level algebra and trigonometry, no calculus is required.

Fundamentals of Audio and Music Engineering: Part 1 - Musical Sound & Electronics [Coursera] (FREE)

Found an interesting and relevant online Coursera course beginning in a few weeks: "Fundamentals of Audio and Music Engineering: Part 1 - Musical Sound & Electronics" via the University of Rochester (NY).

It'll be my first time taking it, so I can't comment on how good it is and such, but even if you're an DIY wizard, it should be an easy, fun course and you'll get a certification upon completion ;). Nice little thing you can add onto your CV/LinkedIn profile, no matter what your major or occupation will be or currently is..

Some course info:

  • Begins MONDAY February 3rd, 2014.

  • 6 weeks long.

  • English w/ English slides

  • Supposedly you'll be able to build a simple guitar amp.

I've taken one Coursera class before, and the video lectures are usually fairly short and homework is quite easy (though the easiness will vary with knowledge & education). It's pretty much a very easy way to get a guaranteed "course certification" (totally viable nowadays).

See ya in class! (hah)

Browsing Coursera and found a free course on electronic acoustics - looks like a lot of info could apply to designing a home theater
