Knollop is proud to announce that we have a new provider! It’s called Complexity Explorer, and it’s a project by researchers and educators at the Santa Fe Institute and Portland State University.
We’re especially excited about the wealth of materials they bring: not just online courses, but also an extensive complex systems glossary and easily searchable databases of syllabi, citations, and other resources related to complex systems topics.
They’ve also got a Virtual Laboratory, with open-source simulation programs illustrating complex systems ideas, theories, and tools, along with plenty of support for teachers and independent learners who want to dive in further.
Right now they have two courses up on Knollop.com! Introduction to Complexity is currently in session and requires no prerequisites to introduce students to the tools used by scientists to understand complex systems. Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Chaos looks slightly more advanced and begins on January 6, 2014, so mark your calendars now!
