This document provides an overview of a MOOC programme on social computation at an introductory level, created by an international team of ACTISS project. The programme is addressed especially to learners of social sciences (mostly bachelor level) who often experience high levels of anxiety when it comes to mathematics, computers and formal modeling and have no working knowledge of advanced algebra, mathematical analysis, programming etc, but it is open for a larger audience.
The programme consists of a series of short introductory courses that will give them an opportunity to peek over this fence built of fears, stereotypes and lack of practice. These courses help the learners experience that computational approach to social sciences is, first, worthwhile, as it provides a new angle to look at societal phenomena and second, accessible, if only approached from the story side rather than from the mathematical formulas side.
We hope this will encourage the learners to engage in more demanding courses or, at minimum, approach the computational social sciences with a better general understanding.
