Community Driven Digital Signal Processing Laboratories in Connexions
Baraniuk, Richard G.

The conventional textbook is largely inadequate for digital signal processing (DSP) laboratory education due to inherent factors such as a small and fragmented market and rapid hardware obsolescence. Freely available open-content materials that enable and promote both local customization and further development by a community of educators offers a fresh approach to lab text development that can surmount these barriers. In this paper, we overview a joint effort organized by the Connexions Project to develop a large pool of DSP lab modules sufficient to serve as the complete, stand-alone text for several types of DSP lab courses.
