 Preface
At present, 
usually consists of educational material (lecture notes,videos, slide presentations, assignments, readings, etc) created for a conventional university or college course and comes without learner support such as expert tuition, contact with fellowlearners or examinations and the prospect of recognized qualifications. iBerry's
project isattempting to fill the gap between existing OCW and its usability by online learners by bringing together good Open Courseware, motivational material, subject guides, open textbooks, links to learningcommunities, etc. etc. for specific academic topics - all based on Open Educational Resources (OER).OCW2 Computer Science and Information Technology is the second academic subject to be tackled byiBerry in this way (the first was
).
What follows is Version 1 - comments and constructivecriticism are very welcome! Another version that includes embedded videos is available at  iBerry . Even if you have no particular interest in Computer Science and IT your comments on form and structurewould still be of value in developing OCW2 for other academic areas. Please contact us!

1. IntroductionWhat is Computer Science and Information Technology?
The terms, "Computer Science" and "Information Technology" tend to be used rather loosely. Computer Science in its purest form is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation but itis often taken to include large parts of Information Technology (IT) more concerned with the design anddevelopment of computer-based information systems. "OCW2 Computer Science and IT" aims to cover  both of these areas, focusing on the fundamentals as taught by universities and colleges at degree levelrather than "tips and tricks" for particular programming languages or specific software or hardwareimplementations. However, basic principles are best illustrated by practical examples and this is certainlytrue for the Open Courseware that we recommend.
This is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and of practicaltechniques for their implementation and application in computer systems. It is frequently described as thesystematic study of algorithmic processes that describe and transform information.
