University of Waikato launches MOOC

The University of Waikato’s Department of Computer Science has launched New Zealand’s first MOOC (Massively Open Online Course). The free online course, Data Mining with Weka, was an obvious choice given the fact the data mining software Weka is used worldwide both to teach data mining and to build data mining applications. The course is taught by short video lectures followed by practical exercises, resulting in assessments and (if passed) a “Certificate of Completion” from the University of Waikato. The course starts September 9th. It will be interesting to see how this works out.
