Technological advancements lead to change and transformation in our life styles
and social structure. With the internet, there has been a growing tendency to
bring our lives into digital platforms. For example, bank queues are now replaced
by online banking. We are faced with traps when seeking information in a myriad
of websites, we have social media accounts and e-mail accounts, today’s
technologies present a wide range of opportunities and threats, and the internet
has now effects on all domains of private and professional life. We need to have
thorough knowledge of these technologies and get familiar with technological
threats and opportunities to use technology safely and effectively.
The target audience of this two-week course is those who need more safety
measures when using the internet. Participants can contact the instructor to ask
any questions about the course.
