  • 關於開學上課方式 Q & A
    • 上課方式:
      前三周的資訊理論與編碼技巧會以遠端授課方式進行,未來視情況以現場授課的方式進行,
      但不論線上或現場上課內容都會錄製成影片,可以自行觀看,所以整學期都不一定要到現場。
    • 作業繳交方式:
      會在課程網頁和NTU COOL公布,之後會有完整的遠端繳交方式說明
    • 加簽資格:
      為2類加選,有加簽或旁聽需求請寄信給助教
    • 先備知識:
      修習這門課的話,建議可以(不是必要)先預讀過「機率與統計」、「數位訊號處理」及「通訊原理」等課程,會對老師的授課內容更加有了解!
    • 遠端連線方式:
      遠端連線觀看目前會使用 Google Meet 進行連線,之後會視疫情情況調整
