This course is about the Laplace Transform, a single very powerful tool for understanding the behavior of a wide range of mechanical and electrical systems: from helicopters to skyscrapers, from light bulbs to cell phones. This tool captures the behavior of the system and displays it in highly graphical form that is used every day by engineers to design complex systems.

This course is centered on the concept of the transfer function of a system. Also called the system function, the transfer function completely describes the response of a system to any input signal in a highly conceptual manner. This visualization occurs not in the time domain, where we normally observe behavior of systems, but rather in the “frequency domain.” We need a device for moving from the time domain to the frequency domain; this is the Laplace transform.

We will illustrate these principles using concrete mechanical and electrical systems such as tuned mass dampers and RLC circuits.

This computer science course is an initiation to JavaScript programming and has been designed to help Web developers have an understanding of the basic concepts of the language.

JavaScript lets you add interactive features to your Web sites, including dynamically updated content, controlled multimedia, animated images, and much more.

The main objective of this course is to master good JavaScript best practices and to avoid the pitfalls of the language. We’ll use JavaScript within the Web browser.

Why JavaScript is worth your time:

  • HTML5, CSS and JavaScript are the “classic three” for developers and designers;
  • It allows you to add interactivity to your Web sites;
  • You can use JavaScript and HTML5 APIs to master multimedia and create custom graphics and animation, including audio and video players, music and sound effects, with the Canvas API;
  • Include reusable widgets and learn how to use third party libraries;
  • It is powerful, easy to learn, and quick to write;
  • It has great tools (editors, runtimes, lint tools, browsers) as well as great online support through plenty of active open source communities.

At the end of the course, we expect that you will be able to read the source code of any JavaScript example found on the Web, learn from it, tweak it, and even – why not? – start contributing to open-source JavaScript projects. This introductory course will make you think like a JavaScript developer.

A successful manager makes good decisions. To make good decisions, you need to understand the market forces that impact your business and personal life. This is true for managers in large multinationals or small businesses, in non-profit organizations or in the government. Individuals and households also make decisions. They decide on what to learn, where to work, how much to save, where to invest, and what goods to buy, among others. Most modern societies depend on markets to organize economic activity: they are market economies. A large number of decisions you make as individuals or as managers relate to markets. So it is important for you to know how markets work and how to make good decisions as a manager or as an individual operating in a market environment. This is what this course will teach you.

Most business schools have a course on Managerial Economics as part of the MBA curriculum. Exposure to Economics is essential for all students of management. This course will provide a simple introduction to Managerial Economics and use minimum mathematics.

Have you ever wondered why humans walk on two legs rather than four? In this course, we will explore how science investigates this unusual form of locomotion. We will start our investigation by looking at the mechanics of upright walking in humans and comparing that to bipedal locomotion in large birds, bears, and apes.

We will journey back millions of years into the human fossil record in an effort to understand how and why upright walking evolved. Around our first birthday, each of us learned how to walk, but how does this happen? With bipedalism came costly trade-offs as well-- we’ll examine these aches and pains as byproducts of our evolutionary history.

This course will take an intentionally interdisciplinary approach to studying how and why humans move bipedally. You will be exposed to anthropology, biomechanics, anatomy, evolution and paleontology to explore something deeply human: upright walking.

Description de ce cours : Chaque région du monde présente des facteurs de vulnérabilité au changement climatique mais est néanmoins en mesure d’atténuer les effets de ce phénomène et de renforcer sa résilience. En ratifiant l’Accord de Paris, la communauté internationale a manifesté sa volonté d’agir. En effet, sans action climatique concertée, les progrès accomplis pendant des décennies en matière de développement seront menacés : nous nous trouvons donc à un moment décisif. Ce cours présente les données scientifiques les plus récentes sur la question, explique les différentes répercussions ressenties au plan régional, décrit les stratégies d’action climatique et mentionne différents types d’action qui s’offrent à vous.

Le cours « Bassions la Chaleur: de la science à l’action climatique » se déroule sur quatre semaines. Les deux premières seront consacrées à un tour d’horizon complet des données scientifiques disponibles sur le changement climatique, puis à la description des effets du réchauffement propres à certaines régions au XXIe siècle. Les deux dernières semaines seront axées sur les stratégies d’action que divers pays et régions mettent en œuvre pour relever le défi climatique ainsi que sur la manière dont chacun d’entre nous peut agir.

Format du cours

Ce MOOC est conçu selon un rythme hebdomadaire : il prévoit les ressources, les activités et les exercices qui vous sont destinés durant chacune des quatre semaines du cours. Chaque semaine, divers matériels pédagogiques seront mis à votre disposition :

  • Des présentations vidéo interactives effectuées par de grands spécialistes et praticiens des questions climatiques
  • Diverses ressources : activités interactives fondamentales ou optionnelles (approfondies) et distrayantes sur le thème de la semaine
  • Des interrogations destinées à évaluer vos connaissances, compléter l’enseignement donné et fournir une rétroaction immédiate
  • Des tâches qui affineront votre capacité d’analyse, de réflexion et de communication
  • Des forums de discussion et des échanges sur les médias sociaux pour collaborer avec d’autres habitants de la planète, tout en enrichissant l’interaction entre les participants
  • Une séance de questions-réponses interactive en direct avec des spécialistes internationaux du changement climatique sur l’application Google Hangout
  • Enfin, votre projet final consistera en un document numérique.
