UT_Measurement_Uncertainty_MOOC_Participants_2015On Monday, March 02, 2015 the web course “Estimation of Measurement Uncertainty in Chemical Analysis” was launched the second time as a MOOC (Massive Online Open Course).

The popularity of the course is this year somewhat higher than it was in 2014: more than 400 participants from 70 countries (ranging from Jamaica to Malaisia and from Zimbabwe to Finland) have registered (in 2014: 270 participants form more than 40 countries). Image on the left shows the countries where the participants come from. As in 2014, the majority of participants are from analytical laboratories, once again demonstrating the continuing need for training in measurement uncertainty estimation in analytical chemistry.

The full course material is accessible from the web page https://sisu.ut.ee/measurement/uncertainty. The course materials include videos, schemes, calculation files and numerous self-tests (among them also full-fledged measurement uncertainty calculation exercises). In order to pass the course the registered participants have to take six graded tests and get higher than 50% score. These tests are available to registered participants via the Moodle e-learning platform. Participants who successfully pass the course will get a certificate from University of Tartu.

It is planned to run this course as MOOC again in Spring 2016.
