Be careful with the Digital Media Course:
Description: Information relating to all five human senses can --or soon will--be represented in digital form. This course will examine digital media and digital information in detail, to include different types of media, different file systems, and different data types, leading to an understanding of how information is saved to, organized on, and retrieved from digital media. The culmination of this subject will be to examine how information can be altered, deleted, and hidden on various digital media.
I was looking forward, and expecting a "File system analysis" type course. What the bulk of it ended up being was a course on digital cameras and image file formats and how they can be manipulated. Much was spent using Photoshop...so if you are expecting NTFS and FAT data structures for example you will be disappionted.
A tad pricey but all in all I can't complain. If you are taking the program online don't go the accelerated route, you can't cover much properly in 7 weeks IMO.
