We have presented in multiple articles and conferences a novel approach to education in the area of digital forensics based on a multi-platform cloud-computer infrastructure and an innovative computer based tool. The tool is installed and offered over the cloud-based infrastructure of the Dynamic Forensic Education Alliance. Cloud computing provides efficient mechanism for a wide range of services that offer real-life environments for teaching and training cybersecurity and digital forensics, The cloud-based infrastructure, the virtualized environment and the developed educational tool enables construction of dynamic e-learning environment making the training very close to reality and to real-life situations.
Recently, Dr. Melissa Layne, which serves as the AVP for Product Development for the American Public University System was interested in this development for the further research on the article published by Primož Cigoj and Borka Jerman Blažič, “An Advanced Educational Tool for Digital Forensic Engineering” in International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning. (2016).
