Final Projects

Over the span of this MOOC the participating teams worked on the economic valuation of different ecosystems. The teams worked on a case of interest to them and developed an alternative scenario for the current situation of their ecosystem. Participants then carried out a variety of valuation methods to assess the economic costs and benefits of a change in land use practices and come to a decision whether their proposed project implementations were worth undertaking.

    Along with that,
    I still look for the comments/observations raised by the MOOC/ELD tutors about the five presented projects!
    Such comments shall give us insight on what particularly we miss and on what we need to focus more!
    Hope such a request isn’t too late!
    Again, thank you for this great learning experience.

  2. Ali Salha

    One of the suggestions I like to add (to broaden the participation of our course peers): is having a Peer Review Task/Assignment!
    For example, if we have the final projects posted on the board, then each team/group shall have the ability to review other different two/three projects and to provide constructive feedback within a time frame.
    I believe this step is a remarkable one for understanding globally the application of ELD components.
    Best of luck,
