this looks pretty interesting
I saw this MOOC (massively-online open course), starting on 2

"Wild, wild web: Is the Internet a lawless no man?s land? Based on
the recent public debate on data protection and massive privacy

it's free to participate and taught in English. The course content
The first part of the course will provide an overview of the

private security. The second part will then go into the
evolution of human rights, their violations and protection
mechanism in era of the internet.
Week 1: An introduction to public privacy, cyber security and
Week 2: Yours and the rights of others: civic and social human
Week 3: Human rights cyber regime
Week 4: Agencies for the human rights cyber space
Week 5: Security, human rights and privacy assurance through
Week 6: E-democracy and social networks

I've not used iversity before, but I've had good experiences of
other MOOCs, certainly.
