It's a topic I touched upon recently, and looked at the potential for digital platforms such as Coursera to provide a low-cost means of regularly brushing up our skills and adapting to changes in the marketplace. Sadly, despite thousands of students enrolling on these courses, neither the Department of Work & Pensions or the Department of Education seemed to know what a MOOC was, much less were they being actively used to help people re-train when their livelihoods had been disrupted.
Thanks to unwavering support from staff, volunteers, donors and patrons, The Tech has grown to be far more than a museum. It is a valued community resource for education and innovation, one that in 2015 was awarded the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the highest honor a United States museum can achieve.
Windows Server 2008 R2: hacking and securing training is dedicated for those who manage Server systems and IT infrastructure: IT administrators, IT managers or project managers. The course includes topics discussed from the point of view of the administrator and shows you step by step what to do to protect the Windows Server against possible attacks and loss of important data.
This is based on Andrew Ng's popular machine learning class on Coursera. I didn't see anyone documenting the solutions in R, so I wanted to share mine. Hopefully some people will find this resource helpful. Note that you won't be able to take this class for credit if you use R instead. Assignments are submitted via a Matlab script that references other Matlab files, which I've obviously not completed.
