CloudMOOC course

Funded by Google, we have developed a Cloud Computing online course (CloudMOOC) using their Course Builder technology. CloudMOOC offers a repository of 10-20 minute lessons (‘songs’) drawn from the Course Builder library, which are assembled as a playlist into ‘albums’ (units, modules, courses). This is similar to the ‘Playlist’ that is a popular feature in YouTube and web-based music repositories. The customization will be explored using material from Indiana University to form a repository of lessons from which courses can be prepared. Our initial efforts will be aimed at online data science programs in an effort to help the U.S. meet a projected shortage of data analysts, data solutions architects and other data science positions of nearly 2 million workers by 2018.

STEM

Prof. Qiu works closely with Prof. Linda Hayden and Dr. Maureen Biggers on the Indiana University HBCU STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) Summer Scholar Institute. This program has hosted 27 REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) students in the summers of 2009-2013. The STEM scholars were recruited through ADMI (Association of Computer and Information Science/Engineering Departments at Minority Institutions) and A4RC (Alliance for Advancement of African-American Researchers in Computing) with selected universities, including Elizabeth City State University, North Carolina A&T State University, Mississippi Valley State University, and Hampton University. Students spend 8 weeks in the summer on Indiana University's campus and actively engage in faculty-mentored research with the SALSA group on data-enabled science projects (exemplified by life science, polar science and cyberinfrastructure) supported by NSF FutureGrid and CReSIS projects. One of our summer interns, Keenan Black, won first place on "Data Point visualization and Clustering Analysis" at the STARS Celebration Conference in Orlando, FL in 2010. SALSA projects are funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Microsoft Corporation, and Eli Lilly Corporation.
