Instructions on Writing Blogs

Information Theory (Winter 2020)

For those who enroll in the course EE276, you will deliver your final project in the blog format here. Your blog should be a self-contained report summarizing your project, including motivation, introduction, main results/outcomes, and proper details & references. Your blog may be organized in any way – but make sure that your classmates (who may have little background on your specific topic of the blog) can understand your blog and clearly see what you did! 

A few remarks are in order:

  1. Authors: Please indicate in your blog all your group members as the authors;
  2. Category: In the “Settings” icon, please check the boxes of both “Blog” and “EE276 (Winter 2020)” as the category of your blog;
  3. Attachment: For files and images, you are encouraged to upload your source files to your blog. If you’d like to share a link, please make sure that this is a permanent link so that it can still be visited years later (e.g., your Stanford spaces may expire after you graduate). For video attachment, please upload it to Youtube (or any other platforms) first and share the link here. For projects involving computer programming, you do not need to upload your source codes, although feel free to share a link to your GitHub repo.
  4. Math formulae: If you would like to use latex for math formulae in the blog, you may type [DUCK] your latex formula [/DUCK] for inline expressions, and [DUCK display = “true”] your latex formula [/DUCK] for a separate display mode. (When in use, please replace “DUCK” by “latex”.) 
  5. Final report: It is not mandatory to formally write a final report; a blog here is enough. However, if you would like to write a report, you may attach the pdf file here and briefly summarize its contents in your blog.
  6. Outreach event (optional): If you would like to add additional information about your outreach event besides your submitted video, you have the option to include it in your blog. 
  7. Publish: Please publish your blog before the project deadline (midnight on March 22, 2020). Also remember to publish publicly so that other groups may see and comment on your blog.
