What will I be doing?

It examines why some people become ‘addicted’ to the Internet, what motivates cybercriminals, how students can learn effectively online and how organisations can best utilise the Internet. This course is suitable for anyone who wonders what the psychological basis is for cyberbullying or why social networking sites and online media are so popular.
