Learning Outcomes

* general understanding of basic principles of acoustics, audio technology and auditive perception * basic knowledge of recording, coding, transmission and playback of speech and audio signals * basic knowledge of room acoustics, electro acoustics and psycho acoustics * basic knowledge of hearing, hearing perception and the human auditory system

Content

Communcation acoustics consists of all areas of acoustic that deal with the communication between systems, humans or communication between a systems and humans. These are for example: auditory and speech acoustics, electroacoustics, audio technolgy, the simulation of acoustic environments, as well as all signal processing approaches that are used within these areas. Depending on the focus area of communication acoustics the lectures are part of different faculties, e.g., electrical engineering, physics and computer sience. The MOOC brings together leading scientists in the area of acoustics to create an overview on this versatile topic.

Description of Teaching and Learning Methods

Das Modul wir als MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) an mehreren Univerisäten angeboten. Zu jeder angebotenen Vorlesung findet in der selben Wochen eine Übung statt, die durch den jeweiligen Dozenten betreut wird. Die Übungen finden ebenfalls online statt und werden durch Wikis sowie Blogs ergänzt.

Requirements for participation and examination

Desirable prerequisites for participation in the courses:

Als Voraussetzungen werden Grundkennnisse der Signalverarbeitung und der Physik als hilfreich gesehen, allerdings sind recht geringe Kenntnisse ausreichend. Zu beiden Themen wird jeweils ein einführendes Grundlagenkapitel Bestandteil des Kurses sein.
