Data structures provide a means to manage large amounts of data for use in databases and internet indexing services. Efficient data structures are key for designing efficient algorithms and obtaining maintainable software design.
In this Computer Science course, you will start by learning basic data types, such as numbers, and gradually build a conceptual framework for organizing and managing efficient structures.
Basic Data Types, Notion of an Abstract Data Type
Mathematical Properties of Sequences
Special Types of Sequences: Stacks, Queues, Strings
Implementation of Sequence Type: Arrays and Linked Lists
Sets and Maps
Preliminary understanding of implementing sequence structures such as stacks, queues, and linked lists, will also be covered.
MOOCs stand for Massive Open Online Courses. These arefree online courses from universities around the world (eg. StanfordHarvardMIT) offered to anyone with an internet connection.
How do I register?

How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
