Creating educational content for future security professionals
The National Cyber League competition can be a Ball State student’s first exposure to the field of cybersecurity. When competing in this competition, students who are new to cybersecurity may struggle to complete required tasks due to a lack of formal training and a lack of provided resources for training specifically for the National Cyber League. This thesis project seeks to solve that issue by creating a centralized repository of educational videos based around the challenges associated with the National Cyber League competition. These videos employ educational techniques which researchers have stated help improve the educational experience and success of students. The video series also includes a module that provides students with additional resources for them to utilize should they be interested in learning more about the field of cybersecurity.
