Energy Institute Deputy Director Michael Webber is leading a transformative change in 21st century education through the development of the first-ever Course App, Energy 101: Energy Technology & Policy.
Energy 101 is for anyone who wants to understand more about the world of energy.
The Course App comes on the heels of Prof. Webber’s highly successful Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for the Energy 101 content, which debuted in September 2014. More than 44,000 students in 157 countries enrolled in the Energy 101 MOOC. Since then, professors at Stanford University and Duke University, among others, have adopted the course content as required reading.
Leveraging DPS technology in the purely educational space allows the Energy 101 Course App to achieve rich interactivity through the interaction of video, text, quizzes, maps and HTML5 content.
One of the key advantages of the Course App is that professors can constantly update content, an essential quality in the rapidly changing world of energy. The DPS technology also includes built-in analytics to maximize the learning engagement.
