As our world becomes increasingly dependent on technology, cybersecurity is a topic of growing importance. It is crucial that companies and individuals take precautions to protect themselves from the growing threat of cyber attacks.
This is the first online blended K12 cybersecurity course. Students will learn foundational cybersecurity topics including networking fundamentals, software security, and basics of cryptography, all through the CodeHS web-based platform.
The entirely web-based curriculum is made up of a series of learning modules that cover the fundamentals of cybersecurity. Each module is made up of short video tutorials, example programs, quizzes, programming exercises, challenge problems, and unit tests.
The Cybersecurity course is designed for students with some exposure to computer science - no programming experience is required.
Below is an overview of the Cybersecurity course units:
