Energy 101 in the Press

Dr. Michael Webber’s first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), Energy 101: Energy Technology and Policy, just wrapped with outrageous success.  The course ran for the past ten-weeks on the edX platform through an agreement with UTAustinX.  With over 44,000 enrollees, Energy 101 issued certificates to 65% of the over 7,000 active students.  Students included individuals in high school to those holding professional and doctoral degrees from over 170 countries around the world.

Although the course is no longer active, it will be offered again in the first quarter of 2014.  Stay connected with all the updates regarding Energy 101 by liking the official Facebook page or following the Twitter feed.  Updates will also be released in the Webber Letter, a monthly newsletter of all things Webber Energy Group to which you can subscribe.
