The University of Alberta has launched a new massive open online course (MOOC) to teach the public about key issues related to energy and the energy transition. “21st Century Energy Transition: How Do We Make It Work?” is a six-week course that provides an overview of a wide variety of energy topics, including energy transitions, energy sources and production, energy storage, and energy transition. The course includes both local and global perspectives as well as discussions about climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. “What we hope to do with this MOOC is provide a place where people can go and understand, ‘this is why we use oil and gas,’ ‘this is why it’s great to do hydroelectricity or solar,’ just how they all fit together,” says UAlberta Adjunct Professor Brad Hayes.
