Computer Science

You can usually take higher education courses if you’re 18 or older. They’re regularly taught in universities, colleges and professional institutions such as art schools or agricultural colleges - nearly all of which have their own websites. You can get a wide range of skills, for example, diplomas, bachelor degrees, foundation degrees and post-graduate degrees.

The Master Degree in Computer Science program prepares students to work with computing problems and solutions. Graduates are highly sought after by employers and can work in a vast array of fields including technology, business and much more.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom and Britain, is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe.The two most famous (and oldest) universities are Oxford and Cambridge (often referred to as Oxbridge by many Britons) England also has several other world-class institutions, including several in London (notably Imperial College, the London School of Economics, University College London and King's College London, all are part of London University)

Course Studies in Computer Science in East of England in United Kingdom. ICT in Education - Advanced Professional Development [Level HE7] part-time This course allows you to integrate theoretical aspects of ICT with your own professional practice in education, as well as enabling you to assess your own achievement of the learning outcomes. In discussion with your tutor, you will identify a potential e-learning development portfolio that will be suitable for your professional practice. Your portfolio needs to be significant in scale and scope. Routine development, such as that involved in normal course learning material development (normal power point presentations, traditional written handouts, etc.), is NOT what is envisaged. Some examples of the type of projects previous students have undertaken are given in the Further Course Information section below. This is a challenging course that involves both individual tutorial appointments for consultation and group teaching. You will use the WebCT discussion forum facility and actively participate in online discussions in order to get the most from tutorials and group work. You must complete required preliminary reading and tasks before attending any of the sessions (face-to-face or online discussion forums). For individual or group tutorials, you must bring your work and prepare questions to be addressed / clarified. On successful completion of this course you will be awarded a certificate of credit for 20 credits at Level HE7. In addition, you may use these credits towards one of the Masters in Education degrees offered by the University of Bolton. After an initial informal exploration, and an initial literature search (intensive use of electronic based resources available at the University of Bolton library and on the internet, is expected), you will formulate clear and specific project aims and objectives. You will agree these with your supervising tutor. The initial literature search including web based research is important. There must be up-to-date, published literature that is relevant to your proposed project. A key part of the assignment involves demonstrating that what you have done is informed. The results of the literature search are submitted with a written piece early on (see below). Having finalised and agreed your project aims and objectives, you will create an action plan showing key stages, criteria for completion, date for completion and keep this up to date. You will be expected to maintain contact with your supervisor at all stages, and WebCT provides the communication facilities necessary to achieve this. All work undertaken and submitted must be with guidance from your supervisor. When developing group-work you will need to keep a meeting log book to record the progress of your work, ideas and reading. Some examples of projects undertaken by previous students: a) Applying e-pedagogy to a multimedia online course: evaluating different pedagogy theories using technology and selecting the more effective one for a case study. b) The introduction of a VLE to support language learning in HE: a feasibility study using a VLE to support, by blended learning, a language course in HE. c) An e-learning portfolio for a HND in Photography: analysis, selection, justification and demonstration of multimedia resources to support a HND module. This module is part of a suite of professional development courses offered by the University of Bolton covering contemporary issues and developments in education. The modules are designed to equip you with advanced skills and knowledge as you progress in your career and take on additional levels of responsibility. To gain a Masters in Education award you need 180 credits; 120 credits from undertaking advanced professional development courses or other selected modules and 60 credits from completing a dissertation. There has to be a balance between what are called option and core modules but this is straightforward and the Programme Leader can advise. The courses can be taken over a number of years, to fit in with your career and work/life balance. Most part-time students gain their Masters qualification in 2 to 3 years, but you can take up to 5 years if you wish. You will have access to 24/7 IT facilities and campus-wide WiFi, as well as one-to-one support from professional and highly experienced tutors. Entry requirements This course is open to anyone with an interest in developing blended learning skills and e-learning. You will need a computer with internet access as this course involves on-line learning. [-]

Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning and E-Tutoring - Advanced Professional Development [Level HE7] part-time Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) is helping to change the experience of contemporary teaching and learning. This course gives you the opportunity to research, analyse and understand CSCL. You will critically analyse, design and evaluate possible developments of CSCL theories and practices. As you complete the course you will be expected to reflect on your achievement in the form of an assignment or project, leading to a reflective journal and a collaborative group project. On successful completion of this course you will be awarded a certificate of credit for 20 credits at Level HE7. In addition, you may use these credits towards one of the Masters in Education degrees offered by the University of Bolton. You will be introduced to the ideas and concepts of CSCL through keynote lectures, and a series of workshops and tutorials will expand certain topics. These sessions will help you to identify a particular direction that you might wish to research in more detail. You will be encouraged to relate your research to your interest or a particular application in your own field of work. For the collaborative group project, you will be expected to work with others in your group. Project: You will be expected to produce a project based upon your particular chosen area of study. You will have opportunities to discuss this with your tutor and to identify a topic or direction you wish to study. You are then asked to proceed with a literature search and to prepare an outline of your proposed assignment before undertaking further research and writing your report. Collaborative Group Project: You will be expected to produce a collaborative group project based upon your group’s particular chosen area of study. Again you will have opportunities to discuss this with the tutor and to identify a topic or direction the group wishes to study. You will then complete a literature search and prepare an outline of the group’s proposed project before undertaking further research and preparing the report. You will be taught and supported by professional educationalists throughout your course. This module is part of a suite of professional development courses offered by the University of Bolton covering contemporary issues and developments in education. The modules are designed to equip you with advanced skills and knowledge as you progress in your career and take on additional levels of responsibility.
