Marine and Antarctic Science Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)

Have you ever wondered about the diversity of marine biota in our oceans? Do you know what a nudibranch is? Or how a kelp forest functions? Did you realise that the ocean 'pumps' carbon? Are you interested in how marine systems, from coral reefs to Antarctic ecosystems, are managed?

This free course run by IMAS and the University of Tasmania through Open2Study will introduce you to the fascinating world of our oceans. You will learn about marine life and key features of the ocean system. You will also explore some of the stressors on marine systems caused by human activity. Finally, this course will cover how society might sensibly approach managing those threats into the future.
