Course programme

This course was specifically designed to be taught at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), but can be used in part or adapted by other institutions. At CMU the course is offered in a hybrid format, meaning that students work through the online course materials and then attend a weekly recitation session to further review concepts that were challenging and to get personalized help with any learning objectives that they couldn’t master on their own.

Topics Covered: Responsible Computing, Effective Computing, Safe Computing, and Information Literacy.

Estimated Time to Complete Course: Half a semester.

Suggested Prerequisites: None.

Additional Software or Materials Required: None.
