Natural Disasters occur everywhere.
What causes natural disasters? How can you avoid them? How do governments and individuals prepare? Are we doing enough?
Ask your questions about natural disasters this Tuesday, January 19. Head to r/iAMA to ask your questions of John Gyakum and John Stix, who are currently teaching McGill University’s Natural Disasters MOOC on edX.
AMA means “Ask Me Anything.” Questions about natural disasters, recovery, the professors’ research, and more, are fair game. (Current students, please note that the AMA is not intended to be a Q&A solely about the course itself.)
How to participate in the AMA:
- 12:30PM ET: We’ll post the AMA and link to it from this page. We’ll also message the AMA out via edX social channels (follow edX on Facebook and Twitter).
- 12:30PM – 1PM ET: Redditors – students and non-students alike – ask questions and can vote on other questions according to which they would like to see answered. Be sure to log in, ask your questions, and upvote others’ questions and comments to help guide the conversation – see below for more information on how reddit works.
- 1PM – 3PM ET: The professors will then go through and respond to any questions he would like.
