Course Software Overview

We will use both commercial and open-source software in the course. Following is a summary list of specific software you will need to have available on your computing system:

  1. Zoom (video-conferencing)

  2. Webots (robot simulation)

  3. Python 3 (interpreter to support Webots and general programming)

  4. on macOS: Xcode (compiler to support Webots)

In addition, you’ll need to provide software to meet the following needs:

  1. web browsing (Google Chrome recommended)

  2. video editing (e.g. iMovie is fine)

You may also wish to have a programming text editor available.
