Delft Data Science Seminar - Online Education - 31 March
Delft Data Science organises its newest edition in the series of Delft Data Science seminars from the EEMCS faculty. These seminars address the challenges and opportunities emerging from large quantities of heterogeneous, complex, networked and dynamic data influencing virtually all socio-economic domains. The resulting knowledge from DDS research has a huge impact on all those aspects in society. One of the socio-economic domains DDS is involved in is Online Education.
Massive Open Online Courses are an innovative way to make education available for everyone. But how can we guarantee the quality of Online Education with such a high demand. Three international speakers will share their insights together with Delft Data Science, other researchers, partners and with you at the international Open Education Week (27-31/03) on the 31st of March.
