Task 2.4: E-learning course

ARIES Task 2.4 aims to create an e-learning course to serve as an introduction to accelerator science, engineering and technology, aimed at undergraduate students.

What?

An e-learning course or 'Massive Open Online Course' (MOOC) on accelerator science, engineering and technology.

 

Why?

To give undergraduate students a crash course in accelerator science and allow them to make informed decisions in further study or career choices related to accelertor research. 

 

Who?

ARIES is a European R&D project organised by CERN, and Task 2.4 is led by CNRS. The MOOC is aimed at European undergraduate students in the physical sciences.

 

When?

The work for the e-learning course kicked off mid 2017, and will continue until April 2020.

 

How?

  • Survey existing e-learning initiatives in relevant physical sciences disciplines
  • Define the intellectual content of the e-learning course
  • Survey e-learning tools and select an appropriate tool
  • Set up the e-learning course in test mode
  • Define resources required to launch, maintain and run the course on a sustainable basis
