Computer Architecture is a free MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) for computer science students and everyone interested in the topic.
The videos teach basic concepts about the implementation and functionality of computer systems which are reinforced with the help of exercises and quizzes.
The course is split into the following 9 units :
- Unit 1: Introduction
- Unit 2: Combinatorial Logic
- Unit 3: Sequential Logic
- Unit 4: Arithmetic
- Unit 5: Instruction Set Architecture
- Unit 6: Input and Output
- Unit 7: Processor Architecture
- Unit 8: Memory
- Unit 9: Performance
- Teaching basic knowledge about the design of digital circuits
- Understanding of architectural principles and organisational forms of modern computers
- Insight into the interaction of hardware and software
- Creation of machine-oriented programs using the ARM architecture as an example
- Learning approaches for evaluating and comparing computer systems
- Understanding the structure and functioning of hardware
