Online Course in Data Intensive Scientific Computing

We are happy to announce the pilot of a new online short course in Data Intensive Scientific Computing.  This is the equivalent of a one-credit seminar which provides an introduction to the challenges of scientific computing at large scale and the tools used to address those problems.

The course was designed to augment our summer REU program in DISC, but is also suitable for undergraduate students taking research credits, and for graduating students in all disciplines looking for an introduction to topics and tools in scientific computing.

By default, the online course is ungraded: anyone is welcome to sign up, view the lectures, take the quizzes, and follow the tutorials.  If you want to receive a grade, talk to a faculty member at your institution to see if they will work with you on the material.

The course is developed by Prof. Douglas Thain and Prof. Paul Brenner, produced by the Office of Digital Learning at the University of Notre Dame, and offered through the EdX Edge platform.

You can check out a sample lecture here:



And here is an overview of the course structure:

  10. I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt. cursos gratis en linea
