Upcoming Class

I've seen posts by several people as of late talking about digital forensic classes they'll be teaching in which they plan to use Digital Forensics with Open Source Tools for the text book.  I mentioned in my review that I thought it would be a good book for introductory digital forensics courses and it seems others felt the same way. I'm happy to say that I'll be teaching a brand new DF course starting in the Spring, 2012 semester at Lincoln Trail College and I'm planning to use DFwOST as my text book as well. When I was first asked to teach this course, I started trying to decide on a good book that beginners and those with some experience would benefit from that I felt would cover all the topics I wanted covered. DFwOST is definitely that book.

On a related note, I'll be teaching Computer Ethics at LTC beginning in the Fall, 2011 semester. This course is required if the student is pursuing the Computer Forensics certificate. I'll be using Ethics for the Information Age by Michael J. Quinn as the text book. I've only had a short time to look at the book, but it looks like it's going to cover the topic very well.

I'm very excited to be teaching for the very first time and hope I will do a good job at it. I've never taught before and was pretty surprised when I was contacted by the college.
