MOOC « Des rivières et des hommes »

A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) about hydrology, hydraulic and fluvial geomorphology applied to rivers management, proposed in French, will start on November 3rd 2014. The course will discuss the dynamic of developed rivers, the threats they are exposed to and the threats they pose to their neighborhood, in particular floods.

The course is proposed by the French web platform FUN that offers free online courses with a broad variety of subjects. The expected work during the 5 weeks of the course is about 2.5 to 5 hours per week and in a second optional phase, participants can achieve a personal project.
