Champlain College is launching its Computer and Digital Forensics program on the Internet this fall. The program prepares professionals to examine computers and pull relevant evidence from them, and it is the first online degree of its kind in the country.Computers represent the fastest growing technology used by criminals for literally all types of crimes, and the numbers of computer and network security incidents are increasing, said program director Gary Kessler, a nationally recognized computer security expert. The professional computer forensics examiner needs to understand the law, the technology and the investigative process.Today, computers often play a key role in the commission of crimes, as in financial fraud and identity theft, while at other times they serve as record-keepers of conversations and incriminating data.Online students can earn a professional certificate, associates degree or bachelors degree in this discipline without setting foot on the Champlain campus, and accelerated courses are also available. Interested individuals may visit www.champlain.edu/coce/(link is external) or call (877) 772-CCOL. The Computer and Digital Forensics program has been offered on campus since Fall 2003.Founded in 1878, Champlain College first offered online courses in 1993 and now offers 10 full degree programs via the Internet.
“Case 7 is a 59-year-old woman who is currently stable. This is an imported case, she recently came back from overseas,” Yurianto said at a press conference at the State Palace on Monday. “Case 8 is a 56-year-old man who contracted the disease from Case 7. They are husband and wife.”Yurianto said that Case 9 was also an imported case, while Case 10, Case 11 and Case 12 were linked to Case 1, who tested positive for the virus after coming into contact with a Japanese woman who tested positive in Malaysia after visiting Jakarta in early February. Case 10 and 11 are foreign citizens. Case 13 is a 16-year-old girl who is linked to Case 3, who is also linked to Case 1. Case 14, Case 15, Case 17, Case 18, and Case 19 were all identified as imported cases, while Case 16 is a close contact of Case 15.“Therefore the total number of confirmed positive cases as of today is 19,” Yurianto said. He said that some of the patients were being treated in Jakarta and some were outside of Jakarta, but did not specify where and at which hospitals.

The UK Newcastle College has installed a virtual reality system for offshore wind training at its Energy Academy.Delivered by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, in partnership with Scotland’s Energy Skills Partnership, Heriot Watt University and Animmersion VR, the Immersive Hybrid Reality (iHR) training facility replicates working conditions experienced by turbine engineers operating on offshore wind farms.The technology allows users to virtually find and diagnose faults, in a realistic but safe environment which is said to help them develop the vital skills they need to work in the wind industry, ORE Catapult said.Source: ORE Catapult“The immersive Hybrid Reality installation at Newcastle College is a huge, innovative step in training and skills development for the next generation of offshore wind technicians,” said Tony Quinn, ORE Catapult Operations Director.“We are delighted to see this project come to fruition as a dedicated training facility, provided by a high-quality education and skills provider here in the North East.”The technology is expected to allow Newcastle College to support the region’s energy sector, as part of the UK’s aim to create 27,000 skilled jobs in the industry by 2030. Future engineers at the Energy Academy will immediately start training with the new system.“Newcastle College has always been aligned to North East LEP priorities and our training and development here at the Energy Academy is centred around the skills required by industry,” said Director of Business Partnerships at Newcastle College Marc McPake.“Collaboration with employers is at the centre of everything we do and our partnership with ORE Catapult is a fantastic example of a relationship which will benefit our students and an entire industry.” read more
