Videos to introduce scientific publications in MOOCs

Hi everyone, 

My name is Laura Baquedano. I’ve been working at Sandec for more than a year now, and this is my first post in the SuSanA Forum!

At the Digital Learning Team at Sandec, we have been working in a new video format for Sandec’s MOOCs. Its goal is to introduce scientific publications and encourage MOOC learners to read them.

Until now, two videos in this format have been produced. They have been integrated in Sandec’s MOOCs in Coursera and in their respective YouTube channel.
  1. Methodsfor Faecal Sludge Analysis. You can access the video here  ( https://youtu.be/cZxGjmWVvC8 ).
  2. Advancementsin and Integration of Water, Sanitation and Solid Waste in Low- and Middle-Income Countries. You can watch the video here ( https://youtu.be/KGi4DeHbjYg ).
We are looking forward to your comments and feedback, either here or by email ( laura.baquedano@eawag.ch ).

Thanks,
Laura

Re: Videos to introduce scientific publications in MOOCs

Hi Laura,
Welcome to the SuSanA discussion forum! The two videos that you posted are nice, informative, short & snappy. I enjoyed seeing the two key authors (Linda and Abishek) - who both also post on this discussion forum regularly -  explain the gist of their publications. So thank you for pointing this out to us, and good luck with your MOOCs!

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: Videos to introduce scientific publications in MOOCs

Hi Laura,

A video is certainly a quick and easy way to capture the attention of learners and provide them information on the content of  publications.  In the case of Zambia, we are yet to have standards for usage of treated sludge... I understand Sandec has done a lot of work in this regard. Have you made any recommendations in this regard for countries you have been working in? I know for certain Zambia is one of them.

I have included the thumbnails to these two videos here for quick access:

Hi Elisabeth,

Thank you for your kind words.

We are getting positive feedback about this initiative, and we are working on producing two more spotlight videos. I'll announce them here when they are online.

Best regards,
Laura

Hi Chaiwe,

Thank you for your feedback and for including the thumbnails in your post.

I have asked a colleague to help me answer your question about the standards of usage of treated sludge in Zambia. She'll get back to me or reply here soon.

Best regards,
Laura.

Re: Videos to introduce scientific publications in MOOCs

Hi all,

two new spotlight videos are now online :

The former director of Sandec, Roland Schertenleib introduces the publication “A Sanitation Journey”, which has been published by the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA).



Stefan Diener introduces the 2nd edition of the book "Black Soldier Fly Biowaste Processing - A Step-by-Step Guide", which has been prepared for practical use, explaining the required materials and equipment, as well as each working step similar to a cookbook with its respective recipes.
