*Free Event

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 students. (NO ROS INSTALLATION REQUIRED)

*Content outline:*
*  Problems teaching ROS
*  Creating the perfect ROS class
*  How to define the teaching Schedule / Syllabus
*  How to create a ROS Jupyter notebook
*  How to create some Gazebo simulations
*  How to connect the notebook to simulations
*  How to add a practical project
*  How to include an 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.

*Webinar for:*
Professors or Teaching assistants in Robotics who are preparing the ROS
Course for 2019 FALL.

*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.

*Speaker:*
*RICARDO TÉLLEZ, Ph.D.*
Dr. Ricardo Tellez is the CEO of The Construct (www.theconstruct.ai), the
company world leader in teaching ROS online. He has a Ph.D. in 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 graduate 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.
