The IoT module introduces learners to the Internet of Things, which extends Internet connectivity from computers and related devices to other physical devices or common objects and leverages from technologies such as embedded systems, wireless sensors, and automation. IoT devices enable organizations across a wide range of industries to increase productivity.
Over the last few years, there has been an explosion in the scale of the Internet of Things. Homes, offices, factories and entire cities are being made “smart” by the proliferation of Internet-connected devices. Some estimates suggest that the number of connected IoT devices will reach 41.6 billion by 2025. Organisations and societies are only now starting to grasp the potential and implications of this trend.
This module is suitable for a wide range of learners; for example, non-technical professionals who wish to build and demonstrate an understanding of IoT, facilitating engagement with their technical colleagues or their suppliers, or learners who wish to add general technical knowledge to sector-specific or general studies.
