|| This book on Multimedia
Systems is an ongoing effort to put together my lectures and notes
compiled over several years of teaching a Multimedia Systems course in
the CSE department at UT Arlington. I originally had planned to write a
book and have it published. To this end I put together a propectus to
submit to publishers. However, once I discovered the Creative
Commons movement, I realized it is a more natural fit for my thinking
on the matter of books. I do not care to make money off of a "student".
The knowledge contained in these lectures is not my invention, it may
have the imprint of my interpretation and to that extent is my creation
with all its flaws. Therefore, I see myself as merely a conduit of this
knowledge. It is for you the reader to decide what this is worth to
you. If this is worth something to you then hopefully you will
participate in similar acts of knowledge dissemination as you are able.
Most of the topics are complete with some that I plan to fill with time. For each topic that I already have content there is my audio that goes with the powerpoint slides. The pdfs are simply prints of the powerpoint slides. On some lectures I have notes associated with the powerpoint slides. Also where relevant I used animation in powerpoint when I felt it served as an aid towards comprehension.
A short note about the Creative Commons license. It is by far the most open license I am aware of. In a nutshell, it allows you to use the material however you deem fit (for commercial use as well) as long as you acknowlege the attribution of the source (me).
