More than 3,000 students are enrolled in a new MOOC on habitable exoplanets that launched on June 1 on the FUN* platform. The course was created by Grenoble-Alpes University and the Grenoble Universe Science Observatory under the direction of astronomer Jean-Charles Augereau. Content was contributed by nine scientists, including Phelma graduate and INAC PhD candidate Maxime Morinière.

The online course is free of charge and open to the general public. It will run until August 3. It includes around twenty videos lasting between seven and ten minutes and covers topics like the detection and formation of planets and the methods used to identify their life forms. Students can complete a quiz after each video and a final homework assignment to earn a certificate of course completion.
