Nuclear knowledge is critical now: the previous generation of nuclear personnel is retiring; countries are expanding nuclear programs; ageing nuclear installations may face challenges to ensure they can be operated safely; and there is a growing need for long-term management of radioactive waste and for countries phasing out nuclear programs. Do you work in the field of nuclear energy and realize that knowledge is used inefficiently and even could be lost? In this engineering and physics, you will learn how to use, transfer and preserve knowledge for the further development of nuclear power. The course is designed not only for students of nuclear specialties, but also for the staff of organizations operating in the field of peaceful use of nuclear energy. This course is also designed to meet the recommendations of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The course was developed on the basis of IAEA publications on nuclear knowledge management. To take the course you do not need a deep knowledge in nuclear technology. Join us as you start your nuclear knowledge management journey.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
