Between 2015 and 2017, the PCCP produced and broadcasted a widely successful Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on gravity. Over its 7 editions, both in French and English, the MOOC “Gravity!" (“Gravité !") registered more than 95,000 participants, from all over the world. A record for a scientific MOOC!
The ways of imparting knowledge are evolving. MOOCs broaden the intended audience, use innovative technologies and pedagogies and create a community through discussion forums and interactive exercises. The MOOC Gravity! presents the fascinating world of the Universe, without mathematical formulas! It is regularly available on the France Université Numérique platform and the FutureLearn platform.
