We are honored to announce that the National University of Córdoba (UNC), an institution dedicated to fostering learning through critical thinking and to fostering scientific vocation, has joined edX.
As one of the first universities in Latin America, the university shares edX’s mission and commitment to offering learners all over the world access to high quality educational content and to sharing the latest in scientific innovation. The first course offered by the National University of Córdoba is Introducción a las ondas gravitacionales (Introduction to Gravitational Waves). The course is open for enrollment today and begins on November 27.
The course, which offers learners the opportunity to explore the most important recent scientific discoveries in the field of gravitational waves, is taught by Dr. Gabriela Gonzalez, who was part of a Nobel Prize winning team in the field of gravitational waves. During the course, Dr. Gonzalez will teach learners how gravitational waves are produced and detected. In addition, learners will delve into the inner workings of black holes – what they are and how we can study them – and will gain an in-depth understanding of gravity.
The launch of this course from the National University of Córdoba marks an exciting start to our ongoing partnership and we look forward to sharing news of more courses in the future.
Please join me in welcoming the National University of Córdoba to edX!
