21W.784 Becoming Digital: Writing about Media Change (MIT)
"Becoming Digital" traces the change in practice, theory and possibility as mechanical and chemical media are augmented or supplanted by digital media. These changes will be grounded in a semester length study of "reports from the front." These reports, found and introduced by students throughout the semester, are the material produced by and about soldiers and civilians on the battlefield from the introduction of wet photography during the Crimean and Civil Wars to contempor
Light Absorption, Refraction, and Reflection - by StudyJams
Light always travels in a straight line until something gets in its way. When that happens, light can be absorbed, reflected, or refracted, depending on what kind of surface it hits. Learn more about light with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
21F.101 Chinese I (Regular) (MIT)
This subject is the first semester of two that form an introduction to modern standard Chinese, commonly called Mandarin.

6.011 Introduction to Communication, Control, and Signal Processing (MIT)
This course is taken mainly by undergraduates, and explores ideas involving signals, systems and probabilistic models in the context of communication, control and signal processing applications. The material expands out from the basics in 6.003 and 6.041. The treatment involves aspects of analysis, synthesis, and optimization. Topics covered differ somewhat from semester to semester, but typically include: random processes, correlations, spectral densities, state-space modeling, multirate proces
