The three-week course, "top Writing Embarrassing Code: SWEBOK Version 3.0 Best Practices for Software Development," will be taught by IEEE Computer Society (http://www.computer.org/
The course will begin on 17 February 2014, and meet from 10-11a.m. PST each Tuesday and Thursday. Presentations will be followed by an open discussion forum, a quiz, and a review of comments raise during the discussion. To register, visit http://www.computer.org/
The course is free and open to everyone. Each program participant will receive a complimentary electronic copy of the latest SWEBOK Guide, which builds upon Version 2.0 by adding significant content developed and approved by an international team of software experts.
"As the world of software development and software engineering grows and expands, glitches, malfunctions, breakdowns, and failures become more commonplace,"
The new MOOC will discuss the importance of the SWEBOK Guide to software development and the software engineering field (http://www.computer.org/
"This represents a unique event–the first time a university and a professional society have collaborated to present a software engineering MOOC," said Jean-Luc Gaudiot, IEEE Computer Society Vice President of Educational Activities and a computer science professor at UCI. "This is the future direction of education. It goes well beyond the conventional lecture. It may not be in its final form. We have to experiment and lead the way."
MOOCs are being viewed as a means of bringing education into the hands of a broad global audience, using interactive methods such as video, discussion forums, and presentations. Some of the more well-known MOOCs draw tens of thousands of students.
