What is the goal of CyberEdu?
The purpose of CyberEdu is to educate college students about basic cybersecurity skills and practices. Not all students have the opportunity to learn from the ACES program yet all students are deeply connected to cyberspace. CyberEdu will help to create an educated online community at the University of Maryland.
Where did CyberEdu come from?
CyberEdu is a collaboration project between ACES and the Divison of Information technology. The initial ACES cohort came up with the idea for CyberEdu during the first semester Project NEThics assignment. From there, project lead Bobby Crumbaugh developed the project further, bringing in other ACES students to build the gaming environment. This project has received constant support from Amy Ginther, UMD DIT and Dr. Michel Cukier, Director of the ACES Program.
