About This Course:
This is the 4th course in the intermediate, undergraduate-level offering that makes up the larger Programming and Data Structures MicroBachelors program. We recommend taking them in order, unless you have a background in these areas already and feel comfortable skipping ahead.
- Introduction to Programming in C++
- Advanced Programming in C++
- Introduction to Data Structures
- Advanced Data Structures
These topics build upon the learnings that are taught in the introductory-level Computer Science Fundamentals MicroBachelors program, offered by the same instructor.
This is a self-paced course that continues in the development of C++ programming skills. Among the topics covered is the development of more advanced command-line programs that utilize file processing, linked lists, stacks, queues, trees, binary search trees, and tree balancing algorithms to solve problems. Several implements are presented in the development of each data structure, including hash maps, AVL, and red and black trees. Students learn how to utilize and program these data structures through the lectures and the labs. C++ programming material is presented over eight weeks of interactive lectures with quizzes to assess your understanding of the material. Students will experience hands-on practice writing C++ programs through twenty-two lab challenges.
This course focuses on the efficiency of different data structures to solve various computational problems. A data structure is a collection of data values, the relationships among them, and the functions or operations that can be applied to the data. The data structures and algorithms learned in this class are the foundation of modern programming.
What You’ll Learn:
- Design and develop programs that utilize linked lists to store data internally.
- Design and develop programs that utilize stacks and queues to manage collections of data
- Utilize binary search trees and balanced trees to implement fast retrieval of data from a collection of data stored in memory.

About this course
Master the fundamental components of advanced literature searching in the health sciences.
Informationist Mark MacEachern and a team of fellow health sciences informationists at the University of Michigan designed this course for anyone responsible for constructing literature searches as part of their research. This course will specifically help professionals and researchers in the health sciences improve the overall quality and reporting of their literature searches.
After completing the course, you will better understand the importance of literature searches in health sciences work, the components of effective searches, and best practices to sufficiently report the search process. All learners who rely heavily on past research in their project work – regardless of their experience or current competence – will benefit from this practical learning experience.
What you’ll learn
- The components of advanced searches
- How to identify the types of projects dependent on advanced searching
- How to construct advanced searches
- Ways to uncover search-related biases that impact projects
- Procedures for citation management
- Best practices for reporting search strategies

Who can take this course?
Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. EdX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
