AstroMcGill presents the 28th Public Astro Night, with a public lecture by Dr. Laurens Keek. He is a post-doctoral fellow visiting the Physics Department of McGill University from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
McGill’s initial experiment with Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, has been a success and the first offering, Food for Thought, will be repeated next year. More than 32,000 people from 160 countries, with an average age of 35 (a bit younger than normal) signed up for the MOOC. Almost 1,800 people completed all elements of the course, and another 7,000 people completed at least one assignment or test.
In April, we emailed you about the Heartbleed vulnerability and its potential impact on McGill. All of McGill’s central IT systems have been evaluated, and updates were applied where needed. As a final precaution, we strongly encourage you to change your McGill Password without delay.
If you are a McGill staff member, you are required to change your password.
