edX Free Closed [?] English Computer Science EdX Microsoft Philosophy & Ethics

Understanding how a computer "thinks" is one of the first steps to becoming an excellent computer programmer. A foundation in logic is crucial in developing this understanding. Mastering logic is more than learning a set of rules. It involves learning how to break problems into smaller chunks, figuring out how repeatable processes can save time and improve quality, and understanding how to organize problems into the right size.

In this course, you'll learn how to do all those things and use computers to make them easier. After all, logical tasks are what computers are best at doing!

This is not a programming course, but it will teach you how to approach critical thinking as both a lifestyle and an aide to better programming and testing.

En un lugar de la UAM, cuyo nombre merece recordar, habita la España de El Quijote

Un espacio en el que su monarquía creó el primer imperio global de la Historia. Un tiempo, entre los siglos XVI y XVII, en el que su sociedad alcanzó la excelencia en las artes y las letras.

Aunque ese esplendor se dio en plenos aires de cambio. Pues España pasó de la hegemonía a la decadencia, de la expansión a la crisis.

Esta asignatura pretende trazar la historia de aquella época. Entre el Renacimiento y el Barroco su cultura marcó la pauta en Occidente. Las obras literarias -La Celestina, El Lazarillo, etc.- se tradujeron enseguida en las imprentas europeas y americanas. Las ropas marcaron la moda cortesana. La tendencia más fashion era “vestir a la española”. Los tratados militares y políticos fueron estudiados por los enemigos.

La acumulación de talentos en la Villa y Corte de Madrid (Cervantes, Lope, Velázquez, etc.), tuvo réplicas en las grandes ciudades de imperio. Pues en Sevilla, Lisboa, Barcelona, Nápoles, México o Lima se multiplicaron academias literarias, estrenos teatrales y fiestas. Una síntesis de pueblos unidos por la lealtad a la Corona y la fe católica.

En nuestro recorrido por esa España de El Quijote pasaremos de la campana al reloj y de la geografía fantástica a la real. La sociedad estuvo - Conocer la Historia de España en el Siglo de Oro a través de El Quijote como hilo conductor.

  • Adentrarnos en la vida cotidiana de los siglos XVI y XVII a través de la sociedad y la cultura.
  • Ofrecer al alumnado las fuentes escritas y visuales para que contemple el tiempo de El Quijote como si viviese en él.
  • Comparar los valores de la España de El Quijote con los actuales para comprender cómo han ido evolucionando a lo largo de la Historia polarizada entre los privilegiados -nobleza y clero- y los pobres y los picaros. El Humanismo fue cultivado en las universidades. La familia, la alimentación, la vivienda, los juegos y las fiestas, protagonizaron la vida cotidiana. 

En el tiempo de El Quijote las luces de los genios literarios y artísticos brillaron sobre las sombras de la Inquisición. Viajemos, pues, a esta excelsa cultura del Siglo de Oro.

With a significant increase in high-profile data breaches and cybersecurity threats in the last couple years, it is critical for businesses to learn about the costs and investment decisions around securing their online systems. If you make decisions around IT investments in your job or are interested in learning more about securing your business, this course is for you.

While many businesses think of cybersecurity as a technical problem, this course broadens that view and shows that security failures are caused as often by bad business decisions and incentive systems as by bad technical design.

This course provides an introduction to the field of the economics behind cybersecurity, delivered by four leading research teams from distinguished universities around the world, including:

  • Michel van Eeten of Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands
  • Ross Anderson of Cambridge University in the United Kingdom
  • Rainer Boehme of University of Münster in Germany
  • Carlos H.Gañán of Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands
  • Tyler Moore of Southern Methodist University in the USA

It will provide you with the economic concepts, measurement approaches and data analytics to make better security decisions, while helping you to understand the forces that shape the security decisions of other businesses, products and services.

This course will:

  1. Teach you to make choices on investing in your company’s cybersecurity. We discuss and apply different economic models that help determine the costs and benefits of security investments.
  2. Arm you with research to make strategic business decisions. We review empirical research into security decisions and incentives of actors. We analyze data on firms in different markets, and apply economic concepts to explain the strategies of attackers.
  3. Review policy and regulations. We discuss available economic tools to better align the incentives for cybersecurity, including better security metrics, cyber insurance/risk transfer, information sharing, and liability assignment.

This course offers a broad view of the field through lectures and exercises that can apply to both early career professionals as well as senior technical managers.

After finishing this course you will be able to apply economic analysis and data analytics. You will understand the role played by incentives on the adoption and effectiveness of security mechanisms, and on the design of technical, market-based, and regulatory solutions to different security threats.
After successfully completing this course, you will:

  • Position yourself as a vital subject matter expert regarding the economic drivers that influence cybersecurity and position your company to move forward and stay competitive.
  • Engage confidently with management on opportunities and cybersecurity challenges faced by your industry; analyze emerging security threats and how these threats can be mitigated by effectively addressing real economic problems.
  • Learn and assess the issues of investment in cybersecurity, making your company more productive, while saving time and money.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be awarded a DelftX Professional Education Certificate. The TU Delft Extension School offers Continuing Education Units for this course. Participants of EconSec101x who successfully complete the course requirements will earn a Certificate of Completion and are eligible to receive 2.0 Continuing Education Units (2.0 CEUs).

Enrollment for this course will close on January 29, 2015.

Marketing excellence is a prerequisite for success in any business, from startups to the world’s most established enterprises, yet the art and science of marketing is constantly evolving. Arm yourself with the essential principles and practices of marketing in the digital economy by making this course, taught by Internet consumer shopping expert and Wharton professor David Bell, an indispensable part of your knowledge base.

In this business and management course, you will gain an understanding of how the digital economy works and develop the critical insights necessary to succeed in e-commerce and digital and social media marketing.

The fixed and mobile Internet and related technologies exert a profound influence on how business and social institutions evolve, how they are challenged—and sometimes, even displaced. Companies that were non-existent a few short years ago, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Uber, have dramatically changed how we interact, communicate and get from point A to B. Even Amazon and Google are relatively “young” by any measure. If you’re an entrepreneur, investor, manager, or student, you need thoughtful approaches to navigate and win in this new environment.

This course is organized around four broad themes and we will use relevant theory and analysis, as well as numerous practical examples to develop our key learning points.

The themes are:

  • Behavioral foundations for understanding and navigating the new online-offline landscape
  • New forms of interaction, including formation of networks and reputation building
  • Tools and principles of digital marketing action including online advertising on fixed and mobile devices
  • New media platforms and emergence of “organic” celebrities and communities

This course is beneficial to marketing professionals, analysts, entrepreneurs, small business owners, investors, and consumers This course evolved from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School’s very first course on digital marketing and e-commerce.

This course is part of Wharton's Digital Marketing Professional Certificate. For more information, see here.
