End of the second edition of the MOOC

Dear students,

The 2nd edition of the course Geographical analysis of natural risk: Perceiving, planning and managing uncertainty has concluded and we want to thank you for your interest and participation in it.

We are very happy with the acceptance that the course has had in its second edition: 952 initial registrants of which 886 remained until the end, 548 started some of the modules and 252 completed the course, obtaining the certificate of participation and / or overcoming. The success rate of MOOC courses offered on the main educational platforms does not usually exceed 10%. In our case, the success rate has been 28.4%, and that is thanks to you.

To all those who have successfully completed the course, we offer the most sincere congratulations and we trust that it has been profitable for you professionally and / or academically and that the course has allowed you to confirm the role of Geography in the analysis and management of natural risk.

Likewise, we encourage all those enrolled who have not been able to complete the course in this edition to pay attention to our profiles on social networks because in autumn 2020 the 3rd edition of the course will open. We wait for you!

Finally, thank you very much for trusting us and for sharing your suggestions for improvement, which will undoubtedly contribute to shaping a third edition at the height of the audience, increasingly prepared and demanding, as it should be.

Greetings and until next time!

Sandra Ricart and María Hernández
