The Ohio State University is offering an online course called "TechniCity". This 8-week-long-course will begin from 26th February, 2014.
About the Course:
We are part of the 'TechniCity'. The increasing availability of networks, sensors and mobile technologies allows for new approaches to address the challenges that our cities face. The way we understand cities is undergoing sweeping transformation, right along with the analytical tools we use to design our cities and the communication tools we use to engage people. Absorbing, studying and understanding the role of technology from a critical viewpoint allows us to generate creative ideas for improving our cities.
This course begins by examining how our cities are changing. The course then looks into how technology is used to engage with the public to support decision-making and the creative ways that every-day people are using technology to improve their cities. Students will be examining tools for analyzing the city. Then the students will move into exploring the fascinating ways that cities are using real-time, technology. Students will hear from technological innovators and thought leaders about all of these topics. Students will get to engage around a topic you are most interested in to create a project in their own city.
Jennifer Evans-Cowley and Thomas W. Sanchez will be the course instructors.
The course will have 6-8 hours of work/week.
It will be taught in English and the subtitles will be available in English.
