reddit AMA: Tsunamis and Storm Surges
Posted in: Learner News

What causes tsunamis? How can we better prepare?

What questions do you have about tsunamis and storm surges? This Thursday, January 21, ask your questions of Tomoya Shibayama, who is currently teaching Waseda University’s Tsunamis and Storm Surges: Introduction to Coastal Disasters MOOC on edX.

AMA means “Ask Me Anything.” Questions about tsunamis, storm surges, the professor’s 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:

  • 4:30PM 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).
  • 4:30PM – 5PM 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.
  • 5PM – 7PM ET: The professors will then go through and respond to any questions he would like.
