Free online Web Science MOOC

Published: 11 November 2013

In November 2013, the University of Southampton will be running its first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). This will enable anyone to study online, for free, wherever they are in the world.

The course is a free online study programme that gives you the opportunity to get a taste of Web Science - an innovative new discipline that explores the technical and social sides of the Web.

This is the first in a series of MOOCs to be offered by the University and is run in partnership with FutureLearn - part of the Open University. Students will explore topics such as what is web science, security and cyber-crime, the digital economy and online networks.
