Carl and I concluded our first run of (WSI) Website Investigation: An Introduction to Information Forensics. This is a fully facilitated Moodle based online class. We had a lot of fun and the participants were great. We also radically underestimated the amount of time the course would take. We figured 5 hours in one week. When we polled the class everyone reported taking far more time with each case study.
It doesn't surprise me. As I worked through each case I became fascinated with chasing down the evidence. It's like peeling an onion, layer after layer reveals new information. In the end we decided to double the length of the class. So WSI is now a two week course.
I'd like to invite you all to the next session of WSI. You can check things out here: WSI
The next class opens on August 11, 2008 and is open for registration right now. Drop in and give it a look?
