Concordia Students Create Free Big Data Online Course

by LeeAnne Lavender, Service Learning Coach

Dr. Peter Tong's Big Data class (for 11th and 12th grade students) has been busy this semester creating a virtual course to share with learners worldwide. Their vision is to share what they have learned with other learners, particularly those who wouldn't normally have access to a Big Data class. 

The students have finished the construction of the course and published a website. At the beginning of the 2021/22 school year, they will refine some last components and then start spreading the word about their course so students from any country in the world can begin to take the course and learn about Big Data. 

If you know of high school educators or students who would like to take this course, please forward the link (above) and connect with Dr. Tong by email ( 

Stay tuned for updates on this project in September and learn more about the course in the video below.
