Some people still misunderstand the difference between hardware and software. Hardware is the physical component of the system such as keyboard, mouse, memory chips, USB drive and other devices. Software is the applications that run the computer system. Software is the data stored in the computer system such as Microsoft office. If you would like to have a solid knowledge of software, which consist of writing code, computer science would be a good path; otherwise you should consider computer engineering or el...
Choosing a career path that you would define you as an individual is one of the most difficult decisions. This is especially true for most college students. Even worse they pick their field of study very late, or keep switching majors that affects their ability to graduate on time. You have to find what you truly love. Don't choose to become a doctor or engineering if you have no passion for Math and Science. It's true that those are two of the highest paying fields in the job market. However, if you don't like what you do, your life will be pretty miserable even know though the pay is goo...
A lot of educators and policymakers feel few of today's students are gaining critical thinking skills in their education. It is an important element that is missing in our education system. In this op-ed, the author makes a case for improving critical thinking for students (and even parents), especially as it pertains to health. How do we improve students' critical thinking skills?
With the development of new technology, many public and private universities are now changing their teaching strategies, with massive open online courses (MOOCs). Higher education is now more accessible than ever. Many colleges offer undergraduate course and master degree online, sometimes during the winters and the summers. Many families, with their busy schedules are unable to attend in person sessions, so they prefer to take online classes. Technology has made things easier for us because without attending class, you can have all your coursework done. Universities such as Indiana Bloomingto...
Raspberry Pi is a mini size computer in shape of an ID card that can serve as plugs into your TV and keyboard. It comes equipped with a SD card that can used to install data. I used Raspberry Pi for my digital electronics project. It consisted of using Raspberry Pi to create an alarm system for your mobile phone that can be used for security. Raspberry Pi can be used for many things that our home computers and iPads are currently do. You can use it for spreadsheets, word-processing and even games with high definition game display. It's important that we start introducing this sort of ed...
This fall was my third college semester and my first at SUNY Institute of Technology in upstate New York. The courses are becoming more intense and challenging, but also fun. I am currently learning about circuit and digital logic design along with C++ programming. We learned about how software and hardware work together to make devices better. Before this semester, I would have agreed with anyone that said that engineering is mainly about math and science. After taking classes that taught me how to write computer programs, build circuit and convert numbers to computer language (binary), m...
Trigonometry is a very challenging course that most high school and even college students struggle with, specially the Unit Circle. Students often ignore or forget the tricks involved in solving problems before moving on to higher-level math courses like Calculus. Unit circle tricks are commonly used in calculus. This video helps you understand the concept of unit circle and also help you remember all the tricks you need to know to master that specific topic. If you have ever taken calculus, you probably know that integration and Logarithmic Differentiation requires some trigonometry bac...
Sorry if this course sounds too technical for some of you and you have no interest in understanding it. However, This is one of the required courses that I have to take as an Electrical and Computer engineering student. I am watching this video in order to self teach myself and have some basic understanding before starting the class in the fall. Electrical work is hard to understand because it is done behind walls and is a mystery. This course might not fully convince you about how electricity or circuit works but it will help you understand some of the concepts used to produce electricity; so...

Programming is one of the 21st century skills that is not taught in most public schools. There are many different types of programming languages and thus learning at least one is a very useful skill for students. Companies look and might increasing your chance of landing a job. This doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be a computer scientist, programmer or engineer. You can learn for your own good regardless of your major. It's time that we start introducing programming in middle and high schools so that students can develop those skills and build on it moving forward. There...
Calculus is one of the most challenging math courses that college students struggle with. It covers a lot of topics and includes many formulas that students have to remember. However, this video explains in detail everything you need to know in Calculus 1. It covers all the important techniques that would help any student do better. Calculus is a difficult course and is mostly required for STEM students. I wish I saw this video before taking my first calculus class. There are more useful videos online covering every course that can help you better understand the course you taking or will be ta...
