We are the in the middle of our course launch period once again, but there there still places in loads of fabulous online courses if you are interested. In particular I should mention our four new courses for this term, The First World War in Perspective, Archaeology in Practice, Social Entrepreneurship, and Introducing Mapping, Spatial Data & GIS.
The former two are from our mainstream humanities strand. Archaeology in Practice fills the gap in our Archaeology programme for an introduction to the subject, so is the place to start if you have not studied archaeology before. The First World War in Perspective course is monumental – and provides the best overview to the subject you could imagine in 10 weeks. In particular this is a visually stunning course with loads of great resources and images. I also think our author has done a great job of showing the bigger picture of the war, rather than a UK centric view.
Our GIS and Social entrepreneurship courses come from our growing range of more applied subjects. Introducing Mapping, Spatial Data & GIS is a great hands on introduction to what GIS can do accross a swathe of subjects, with guidance on using freely available tools to complete your own real life project – it has given me loads of ideas I would love to follow up. Lastly our Social Entrepreneurship course introduces this fascinating topic and helps you explore how you could become more engaged in this area.
As usual all are taught by our expert tutors and put you in a global classroom with students from everywhere, giving you a perspective on the subject you could never get in a locally based course. So investigate if you are interested in any of these or anything else from our portfolio.
