Kursinhalt

Discover the history of encryption and learn how it’s used in the modern world

On this course, you will learn about what encryption is and understand its use in the past by using the Caesar and Vigenère ciphers.

You will also look at the present and future of encryption and investigate both symmetric and asymmetric encryption schemes.

The course includes several practical encryption activities which you can complete and use in your own classroom.

This course is designed for teachers delivering computer science lessons in the classroom, at GCSE level or equivalent.

You will need either a Python Integrated Development Environment (IDE) downloaded to your computer, such as Mu, or to use an online Python service such as Trinket.
