  • Pete Olds completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.

    This is a very basic introduction to the management considerations of using Open Data. It's ok for people who haven't had any exposure - but then it is unlikely that they will be taking the course anyway.
