How to Teach ROS

Learn how to prepare a 100% hands-on ROS course for students!

FREE Event     ·     Practice-based Webinar     ·     No ROS Installation Required

Why is it so hard to teach ROS?

Robot Operating System (ROS) is the standard of robot programming and is one of the most essential course for a Robotics degree. But teaching ROS to students can be a daunting process.
In this free webinar, we are going to show you how to make a practical ROS
course for your undergraduate or master students.

(NO ROS INSTALLATION REQUIRED)

Content outline

  • Problems teaching ROS
  • Creating the perfect hands-on ROS class
  • How to define the Teaching Schedule / Syllabus
  • How to create a ROS Jupyter Notebook
  • How to create some Gazebo Robot Simulations
  • How to connect the Notebook to Robot Simulations
  • How to add a practical project
  • How to include a practical exam

Outcomes

  • Change the ROS course from passive listening to active practicing.
  • Move away from a slides based teaching method to a notebook based one, where direct interaction with robots is embedded in the method itself.

Who should attend?

Professors / Teaching Assistants in Robotics who are preparing the ROS Course for 2020.

Materials

  • The whole code will be provided to all attendees as a ROSject, containing simulation, notebook with instructions and code.
  • All attendees will receive a guide on HOW TO TEACH ROS WITH NO HASSLE.
For those who are unable to make the time and date of the webinar, a recorded version and teaching materials of the webinar will be available for download.

RICARDO TELLEZ, Ph.D.

Speaker

Dr. Ricardo Tellez is the CEO of The Construct (www.theconstruct.ai), the company world leader in teaching ROS online.He has a PhD on Artificial Intelligence. He has almost 10 years experience building software for ROS based robots including human size humanoids. He is the author of 4 books about learning ROS (the ROS in 5 days series of books). He teaches ROS at the University of LaSalle in Barcelona for the graduated students at the Master on Robotics. Additionally, he delivers every Tuesday a free ROS Live Class on his Youtube channel, where attendants can learn and practice a ROS subject. He is also the conductor of the ROS Developers Podcast where he interviews every week a ROS expert about how to better program robots with ROS.

His goal is to make robots understand their world. And he has a plan.
