Global Green Computing On-line: Evolving Content and Assessment for an International Moodle Course
In 2008 Tom Worthington was commissioned by the Australian Computer Society to design the world's first on-line postgraduate course in Green Computing. He will describe how the course was designed, first run in 2009 for ACS then adapted for three university programs on two continents, using Australian developed software. Tom will discuss how ICT sustainability can be integrated into the workplace and provided on-line globally.
