Privacy based learning

About the Book

Our explorations, mistakes, and experiment which we make when learning deserve much more privacy than we get online these days. This course puts you back in control of how you learn, teach, and lead online. The guide + workbook approach lets you build your privacy based learning - from first principles, through recommended apps, and on to practical projects.
