À propos du cours

Learn about Smart Cities within the context of management of urban infrastructures. The introduction of Smart urban technologies into legacy infrastructures has resulted in numerous challenges and opportunities for contemporary cities and will continue to do so. This course will help you to understand how to make the best of these smart technologies in your cities’ legacy infrastructures. Over the past few years, advances in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have significantly challenged the traditionally stable land scape of urban infrastructure service provision. This has resulted in increasing interest from both technology vendors and public authorities in the transition of cities towards so-called “Smart Cities”. Although such “Smart technologies” can provide immense opportunities for citizens and service providers alike, the ICTs often act as disruptive innovators of urban infrastructure service provision. In this MOOC, you will gain a thorough understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with the Smart urban infrastructures, namely Smart urban transportation and Smart urban energy systems. Over the journey of this 5-week online course you will learn about the most important principles for the management of Smart urban infrastructures as well as the applications of these principles in the transportation and energy sectors. This course does not have any prerequisites. However, to take the most away from of this MOOC, we strongly encourage you to enroll in our other MOOC on the Management of Urban Infrastructures, which has been widely praised by learners. Through this course, you will: - Gain a deep understanding of the nature of disruptive innovations (smart technologies) in urban infrastructure systems; - Learn about state-of-the-art strategies for effectively managing the transition from legacy infrastructures to smart urban systems; - Study the management of the transition phase from legacy infrastructure systems to smart cities by supporting innovations while avoiding early lock-in; and - Understand potential applications of the materials learned in this course within the context of the management of smart urban transportation systems as well as smart urban energy systems....

Quite informative. Loved the way of instructions. It's a very simple English accent and I was able to grasp it even without subtitle. The handouts/reading material is more helpful to work on quizzes.

I have met part of my goals of taking this program. Thank you Prof. Mathias Finger. I would recommend it to be more data oriented like those case studies with specific examples so that it naturally converges to creating case study for a city at the end of the course as final project rather than optional study. Also, suggest to reduce discussions centred to challenges (the course has taken too much of time) and more towards different new services adopted by different cities to capture benefits/impact to the city GDP.

Positive: New insights are well summarized into separate categories providing good overviews. The smart city concept is put into context and provides a basic outline of knowledge to pertain to when talking about the topic.Negative: Boring lecturing, bad power point slides (in terms of modernity and structure), acted interviews.

es un curso muy largo y las lecciones son MUY teóricas, me hubiese gustado menos información teórica y más práctica.

A lot of the course relied on memorizing key points with little effort made to explain the logic behind them.

as someone who works, as someone who use a bike for commute, I was eager to get this course. I thought it would be interesting. So far, every single video has been tedious, I cannot recall a single key word. The professor must be really good, but for video courses not so much. At this moment, spending $45 was a huge waste of money.

The lectures for this course lacked substance. The quizzes predominantly asked for verbatim recitation of the substance-free lectures.

This course is about generic concepts on governance towards the implementation of Smart City systems. It does not cover practical or technological issues.

More examples would be nice. Referring to more cities would be helpful. More examples, more concrete information would give more useful insights...
