Harvard: CS50x Introduction to Computer Science

Per the syllabus, CS50x comprises 11 weeks of material, Week 0 through Week 12 (with no Week 6 or Week 11).

Within each week, you’ll typically find:

  • One or two lectures. Taught by David in Sanders Theatre in Memorial Hall, lectures present the week’s concepts through examples and demonstrations (sometimes followed by cake).
  • A few walkthroughs. Taught by David in CS50’s studio, walkthroughs walk you through the week’s source code (i.e., programming examples) in more detail than in lecture and at a slower pace.
  • A section (for all comfort levels) taught by Jason Hirschhorn ’14 in Maxwell Dworkin. Sections provide you with opportunities to review the course’s material.
  • A few shorts. Shorts are bite-sized videos that focus in detail on a particular topic. Presented by CS50’s on-campus staff, shorts were also filmed in CS50’s studio.
  • A problem set. Problem sets are programming assignments that challenge you to apply concepts to problems inspired by real-world domains. Embedded in each problem set are additional walkthroughs, taught by Zamyla Chan ’14 or David in CS50’s studio, via which you receive direction on where to begin and how to approach the week’s challenges.

How to Take CS50x

To take CS50x, then, simply start working your way through Week 0 through Week 12. For each week:

  1. Watch the week’s lecture(s).
  2. Optionally watch the week’s walkthroughs.
  3. Optionally watch the week’s section.
  4. Optionally watch the week’s shorts (unless required by the week’s problem set).
  5. If the week includes a problem set, read its “specification” and then dive into the problem set itself by following the specification’s instructions. Note that the “standard editions” of some problem sets are accompanied by “Hacker Editions,” which are entirely optional.To receive an Honor Code Certificate from HarvardX, you must submit the standard editions of problem sets.
  6. Submit the problem set per its directions.

In addition to problem sets, the course also has a final project. See its specification for details.

Of course, if you do not wish to receive an Honor Code Certificate from HarvardX, you’re welcome to take CS50x however you’d like! All of CS50’s content will remain available at CS50.tv as OpenCourseWare after 31 December 2014, so not to worry if you don’t get through it in time!

Schedule

You are welcome to take CS50x at your own pace, so long as you submit nine problem sets and submit a final project no later than 31 December 2014.

To help keep you on track, allow us to propose a schedule of deadlines for you, if only for a bit of psychological pressure, but you’re welcome to stray from those dates. In fact, those proposed deadlines will automatically adjust themselves as time passes.

Certificates

Students who earn a satisfactory grade (60% or higher) on nine problem sets and a final project will receive an Honor Code Certificate fromHarvardX as a downloadable, printable PDF.

Solar Energy Course

Discover the power of solar energy and design a complete photovoltaic system.

About this Course

*Note – This is an Archived course*

This is a past/archived course. At this time, you can only explore this course in a self-paced fashion. Certain features of this course may not be active, but many people enjoy watching the videos and working with the materials. Make sure to check for reruns of this course.


The course Solar Energy will teach you to design a complete photovoltaic system. The course will introduce you to the technology that converts solar energy into electricity, heat and solar fuels with a main focus on electricity generation.  Photovoltaic (PV) devices are presented as advanced semiconductor devices that deliver electricity directly from sunlight. The emphasis is on understanding the working principle of a solar cell, fabrication of solar cells, PV module construction and the design of a PV system. You will understand the principles of the photovoltaic conversion (the conversion of light into electricity). You will learn about the advantages, limitations and challenges of different solar cell technologies, such as crystalline silicon solar cell technology, thin film solar cell technologies and the latest novel solar cell concepts as studied on lab-scale.  The course will treat the specifications of solar modules and show you how to design a complete solar system for any particular application. The suitable semiconductor materials, device physics, and fabrication technologies for solar cells are presented. The guidelines for design of a complete solar cell system for household application are explained. Alternative storage approaches through solar fuels or conversion of solar energy in to heat will be discussed.  The cost aspects, market development, and the application areas of solar cells are presented.

After completion of the course, you will be able to:

a) explain the various concepts to convert solar energy in to electricity, heat and solar fuels

b) explain the physical working principles of photovoltaic conversion in solar cells

c) recognize and describe the various solar cell technologies, their current status and future technological challenges

d) analyze the performance of solar cells and modules

e) design a complete photovoltaic system for any particular application on paper

To celebrate this first MOOC on Solar Energy the best student of the course will be invited to the Delft University of Technology for a Delft Solar Energy Center course of one week, to get hands-on lab experience with all the concepts taught in this Solar Energy course.

Education method

The class will consist of a collection of lecture videos, each between eight and twelve minutes in length. The course contains exercises and assignments, which are additional to the video lectures.  The best student of the course will be invited to the Delft University of Technology for a Photovoltaics Lab course of one week, to get hands-on lab experience with all the concepts taught in this Solar Energy course.
