In this week’s podcast we interview Professor Bill Buchanan for the School of Computing at Edinburgh Napier University. His module on advanced security techniques to BEng (Hons) and MSc students has one of the most extensive integrations of information infrastructures. For example, it uses iTunes lectures, which are converted from the stand-alone and Web-based versions. The module overall supports all types of learning, making sure that there is a range of on-line material, all of which is also available in a printed form.
The main advantage of the infrastructure is that students can learn in whatever way they prefer. As a core there is an extensive teaching pack, which has the notes, tutorials, coursework, labs and so on. This material is then scaled to the full range of online material, with full online lectures, on-line tutorials, online virtualised labs, online demonstration of the lab-based work, full iPhone lectures, fun activities (drag-and-drop, and fun tests), a unique simulator package, and much more.
