The University of Bergen completed its first rounds of massive open online courses (moocs) in the autumn of 2015 and spring of 2016. The courses were published through the Futurelearn platform and are free for all participants. 

Causes of Climate Change

Around 8,000 students from around the world registered for the course Causes of Climate Change. During the course of three weeks, the participants could watch six films, take quizes, work with interactive models, participate in discussion forums, and read texts.

The course feedback was excellent: 

"A brilliant course that was both challenging and informative"

"Thank you again to the University of Bergen and to Professors Kerim Hestnes Nisancioglu and Asgeir Sorteberg for their lectures and explanations. It's been very interesting and challenging and thoroughly enjoyable."

Former students also used this opportunity to work and study in parallel.  

Causes of Climate Change will run again from September 5.  Join now!
