Abstract
Digital forensics is the science of investigating digital devices, transmissions, and storage media to acquire legal evidence related to a crime. The discipline is essential in addressing rising cyber crime rates, and acting as a deterrent to insider threats by providing attribution. There is need for advanced training capabilities to help students rapidly acquire the specialized skills needed to perform digital forensics investigations. Didactic instruction, abstract visualization, and simulation exercises are three powerful pedagogic techniques for knowledge transfer. ATC-NY will combine these three technologies to create Alcuin, an automated, online training system for digital forensics. Alcuin will deliver remote learning content by seamlessly integrating both declarative and procedural teaching methods. ATC-NY has assembled a team of leading forensics, visualization, simulation, and learning experts to develop Alcuin. Alcuins unique capabilities will greatly advance the state of the art in e-learning solutions. BENEFIT: Alcuins incorporation of multiple learning strategies will improve skill acquisition and retention. Its automated feedback and evaluation capabilities will allow for an anytime, anywhere capability, greatly reducing instructor workload. Currently there is no comparable solution available at any price.
