What you'll learn on the course


Course programme

À l’École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, un cours de mécanique fait partie de la formation de tous les futurs ingénieurs et scientifiques. Il a pour but de leur apprendre à transcrire sous forme mathématique un phénomène physique, afin de pouvoir en formuler une analyse raisonnée. Cet objectif d'enseignement se retrouve aussi dans le présent MOOC, mis au format "On Demand". Le cours est structuré en quatre volets correspondant à des niveaux de formation croissants : Mécanique 1 : lois de Newton Mécanique 2 : point matériel Mécanique 3 : solide indéformable Mécanique 4 : équations de LagrangeOnline learning plays a key role in lifelong learning. In fact, a recent report by the United States Department of Education found that "the courses that include online education (either completely virtual or blended learning) produce, on average, much stronger learning outcomes for students courses They are conducted exclusively in person. Based on an approach developed by educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom, the mastery learning helps students to fully understand a subject before moving on to a more advanced. In Coursera, usually we give an answer immediately to the concepts that the student does not understand feedback. In many cases, we offer random versions of assessments for the student to return to school and retrying until mastered the concept.
