The lectures of this course are based on the first 11 chapters of Prof. Raymond Yeung’s textbook entitled Information Theory and Network Coding (Springer 2008). This book and its predecessor, A First Course in Information Theory (Kluwer 2002, essentially the first edition of the 2008 book), have been adopted by over 60 universities around the world as either a textbook or reference text.
At the completion of this course, the student should be able to:
1) Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of information theory.
2) Appreciate the notion of fundamental limits in communication systems and more generally all systems.
3) Develop deeper understanding of communication systems.
4) Apply the concepts of information theory to various disciplines in information science....

It seems this course is abandoned by the organizers.

We finished the first week, when usually there are a lot of interactions among participants and the discussion forum has only 4 messages that were dropped a lot of time ago, and none of them were answered or replied. The course staff did not leave any message, answer any question, and show any real interaction.

Frankly I do not understand how this course could get 5 star rating.

Very frustrating given this is an unusual and nice subject...

A little bit boring like conventional lectures, but I understand it's quite mathematical one rather than storytelling subjects.
