You know, the process of learning should be life-long, no matter how good it was your original school path. Like millions of others, I’ve found in the MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) a very good instrument to expand my knowledge, in a very professional way.
So far I’ve experienced two MOOCs from the platform Coursera and I would like to recommend them both.
Introduction to Forensic Science, by Roderick Bates – Nanyang Technological University of Singapore
Terrorism and Counterterrorism: Comparing Theory and Practice, by Edwin Bakker – Universiteit Leiden
This one is from the excellent platform FutureLearn, one of the places to be if you want to learn something useful.
The Power of Social Media, by David Millard and Lisa Harris – University of Southampton
Once again from FutureLearn, this is about social media.
Social Media Analytics, by Jean Burgess and Axel Bruns – Queensland University of Technology
Guess what? More from the same platform, it’s becoming sort of favorite place to get more information.
Cyber Security, by Dr. Steve Riddle – Newcastle University
The security matter is very important for me and it should be important for you too.
Cyber Security for Small and Medium Enterprises: Identifying Threats and Preventing Attacks, by Dr. Nick Patterson – Deakin University
Once again from FutureLearn, another professional-related course:
All right, another one from the same place:
THE DATA EXPLOSION AND ITS IMPACT ON FRAUD DETECTION by Dr. Casey Evans and Dr. Jeff Rinehart- KOGOD SCHOOL OF BUSINESS AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY
Something different, just for fun. FutureLearn and the game industry.
This is a hot subject, kicking off in May, about the new European data protection laws. It could become a milestone.
What about art and crime? This is a very interesting course about the crime scenarios that involves art and historical testimonies.
