Data Ethics Lessons
  • fr-FR
  • English (UK)
Our online Data Ethics course runs for approximately 65 minutes and broken into 8 easy-to-take lessons.

If necessary, it can be broken into shorter modules.

Each lesson is delivered as a single video, and can either be hosted by us for once-off or occasional training, or incorporated into your own training and LMS.

The course is non-technical and suited for all skill levels. It’s SCORM compliant and subtitles are available for each lesson (currently English only).

A test and certificate are also available.
