What’s a MOOC?
A MOOC is a Massive Open Online Course. The aim? Bring together thousands of people and give them free access to quality online learning materials. The result? A great learning experience that puts you in the perfect place to take ACTION! Oh, did we mention it also works great on tablets and smartphones?
What’s in the MOOC?
Online learning materials featuring audio, video, and links to a fantastic range of online resources for you to explore in any way you choose. Add to this a great range of activities (including our overall REI Challenges) and the ability to get into lively discussions with other learners. Sounds good, doesn’t it? You can be confident of the quality too - all of our materials have been endorsed by a range of specialists and experts from our alumni.
What’s different about this MOOC?
MOOCs are the current ‘big thing’. What’s different about ours? We are all about creating a learning community focused on ACTION! At the heart of our MOOC are our REI Challenges - real-world challenges facing renewables that need YOUR ideas, imagination and energy to solve. Let our learning resources give you what you need to join in and make a real change in the world.
What level is the learning aimed at?
No prior knowledge is assumed and we’ve tried to keep everything as clear and straightforward as possible - you can do as much or as little as you need to complete our challenges. If you are over the age of 16 you should have no problem.
What’s in it for me?
We hope this MOOC will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to take action. Maybe you’ll have a BIG IDEA and start a new business, or help to create tools and solutions for others. We hope you’ll become an active part of our learning community and make your contribution felt. Whatever your goal, the MOOC has something for you.
