Time flies – we are in the last Week of the Powering Agriculture MOOC “Sustainable Energy for Food”. We hope that all of you enjoyed it as much as we did!
You’ve been amazingly busy – we’re delighted to see so much teamwork, creation, thinking and discussion, agreement and disagreement. Almost 40 groups have submitted the second Assignment – Good Job Everyone! Our experts at TH Köln will read through each assignment and provide collected feedback by Friday.
You are probably curious what your fellow participants submitted and good news, you will get the chance to read their work during this week’s Peer Review! You have until Friday to complete the Peer Review which means reading and reviewing two of your fellow MOOC-Participants submissions.
And what about WEEK 8?
Week 8 will give you a break: no new content but instead Professor Ramchandra Bhandari from TH Köln will shortly summarize the whole MOOC in our weekly Video. He will look back to the 7 weeks which were packed with loads of information and knowledge: You learned about the Energy Agriculture Nexus in general, different renewable energy resources and technologies, and energy efficiency, in the context of agricultural value chains, as well as about macro- and microeconomic aspects.
Our weekly Reader will be a collection of all Readers of the previous 7 weeks – giving you the chance to easily compile the learning material of this MOOC. In addition we will provide a Checklist which aims to help to identify appropriate clean energy solutions for agricultural value chains, and which provides you with a list of interesting financial institutions.
The Quiz for week 8 is also the final examination. We are pretty sure that, with your dedication and interest for the Energy Agriculture Nexus, you will take the last hurdle without any problems!
Enjoy the last week of our MOOC!
