Course Overview

Recent water issues, increasing populations worldwide, and variations in climate have impacted our water supply, creating questions and issues we’ve never been challenged with before. This free online course, popularly known as a MOOC (massive open online course), offers an in-depth look at these issues guided by Colorado State University, a leader in water science and studies.

This social-based course is taught by more than 10 expert Colorado State water faculty, and is especially valuable for those interested in the fields of:

  • Water
  • Civil engineering
  • Conservation
  • Public health
  • Fishery/wildlife
  • Agriculture
  • Governance and conflicts related to water

What’s a MOOC?

Massive Open Online Courses, popularly known as MOOCs, are noncredit, student-interaction-based programs that provide educational access to the public at no cost. They are typically less immersive than credit courses you’d find at a university, offering more generalized content that’s meant to provide you with a breadth of understanding across the subject matter. MOOCs feature instructor-driven content with a heavy emphasis on student participation. This student-to-student communication creates knowledge and discoveries that enrich the course with a social aspect and shared experiences.
