CHUCOL 2012-13. PLEASE NOTE THAT CHUCOL WILL NOT BE RUNNING IN 2012-13. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES ON THE COURSE AVAILABILITY IN 2013-14.
The Certificate in Humanities Computing for Languages (CHUCOL) provides students in the Faculty with an opportunity to extend their understanding of computing in general and, more specifically, the rapidly evolving field of Digital Humanities. Students on the course acquire valuable transferrable skills whilst also engaging with the intellectual aspects of the changing role of technology in literary and linguistics studies, academia and society as a whole. By the end of the course students can expect to have a content-rich online presence and the necessary skills to independently continue its development. CHUCOL assumes your other academic studies will inform your work throughout its duration, and the Certificate’s most successful students are those who best demonstrate the ability to combine good practice in computing with appropriately high linguistic and literary understanding.

If you want to use and understand computing and emerging technologies in your work, your year abroad, or your future employment, think about CHUCOL, MML’s Certificate in Humanities Computing for Languages. This online listing will give you a flavour of the sort of work completed by previous CHUCOL students.
Questions about the course are welcome, and should be addressed to the CHUCOL team either in person in Room 143 of the Raised Faculty Building or by email to email@example.com.
The application form, together with some covering notes, is available for download below. If you have problems printing out this file (there are three pages including the covering notes), printed copies are also available from the Faculty Office.
You are expected to complete the work set week by week. As noted above, failure to do so results in a mounting backlog which becomes increasingly difficult to manage. Beyond the work to done week by week, there are two crucial submission deadlines which are non-negotiable:
- Project 1: First Wednesday of full Lent Term
- Project 2: First Wednesday of full Easter Term
It pays to plan your workload carefully, well in advance, and to discuss problems as soon as they arise.
- Lecture: Wednesday 4-5pm
- Practicals: the schedule for the practical workshops will be agreed during Lecture One but generally take place on Thursday 4-5 pm
All classes take place in the CALL Facility unless you are informed otherwise.
The CALL Facility and its PWF computers are at your disposal for practical and course work. Access to software and hardware not routinely available in the CALL Facility may be arranged with the CALL Support Team.
Your feedback on the course content and delivery will be much appreciated. As well as completing any formal questionnaires which you are sent, please feel free to offer constructive criticism and positive suggestions at any stage. You are helping to shape what could turn out to be an important course for future MML students.
