Applied computer science
Computer Science can be an intimidating field of study. This practicum seeks to meet learners where they are with an array of interesting topics and lessons that can bring them to where they wish to go with computing in general. Everyone that uses and edits Wikiversity is involved in Applied Computer Science whether they are aware of it or not. Below is a growing catalog of learning groups, materials, lessons and resources selected as tracks for expanding computing knowledge while participating in worthwhile practical projects.
Learning groups and projects
The School of Computer Science is the host of this practicum. These are only a few of the learning groups there:
- Topic:Computer Programming (major CS division)
- Topic:HTML (recommended for "newbies")
- Topic:Graphic design with computers (developing...)
- Topic:Operating Systems (developing...)
- Introduction to computer forensics and Basic computer forensics and security (Both appear to be abandoned)
Many of these Computer Science learning groups need participants and contributors. As you follow your own CS track, feel free to contribute what you can to topics and lessons that appeal to you.
- Web Design, Geoinformatics and Cartography learning groups collaborate to produce attractive interactive maps to use in MediaWiki-based Geospatial Information Systems (GIS).
- Schools of Linguistics, Language and Literature, Media Studies, Music, Film, Engineering and Computer Science are all getting together to produce Wikiversity the Movie. (Awesome project!)
- Schools of Linguistics, Language and Literature, Engineering and Computer Science join forces to assist in the Translation of Wikiversity in many languages using a combination of Computational linguistics (machine translators) and Foreign Language Learning (human translators). group - handbook
