Tuesday, 22 September 2015

The free online course “Smart Cities“, developed by The Open University, starts on September 28. It will last for six weeks. It will be interesting for those concerned about the interaction of IT technologies with the development and appearance of the modern city.

During the course, students will gain a lot of helpful knowledge and will be able to answer several questions. What makes modern urban landscapes what they are today? What is the role of the current citizen in the context of the “smart city” and whether we can influence the development of the city. Another focus of the topic prepared by the teachers of The Open University is the issues of confidentiality, security, and ethical norms.
