The Institut Pasteur wishes to increase the audience of its courses and to give access to high-level scientific online courses to a large audience, throughout the world. To do so, the Institut Pasteur is involved in the development of Massive Open Online courses, on various scientific topics. Our MOOCs are scientific and focus on major biological and public health questions. They are aimed at an audience with a broad scientific background: a bachelor of science is generally recommended to follow our online courses.
The Institut Pasteur has been creating MOOCs since 2014 and wishes to increase and diversify its online education offer. MOOCs of the Institut Pasteur are available either on the French platform FUN or on the American platform Coursera (soon available).
Our MOOCs have a very wide and diverse audience, with learners coming from as many as 150 different countries.
The Institut Pasteur has created the following Moocs:
Open until September 30, 2021, codirected by Pierre-Emmanuel Ceccaldi (Unité Epidémiologie et Physiopathologie des Virus Oncogènes), Jean-Pierre Vartanian (Département de Virologie) et Hilde Angermeier (LGL, Allemagne), this MOOC aims to provide fundamental knowledge about the emerging and re-emerging viruses involved in outbreaks. It illustrates the latest knowledge about the current SARS-CoV-2-Covid-19 pandemic.
The second broadcast of the MOOC Biobanking directed by Mery Pina, Raquel Hurtado-Ortiz and Marie-Noëlle Ungheheuer is online on the FUN MOOC platform. The organizational aspects of a biobank, sampling, collection, equipment, transport and conservation of biological resources are discussed. Registrations are open until July 17, 2021. The course ends on July 23, 2021.
Open to registration:
The MOOC Tuberculosis, third edition led by Howard Takiff, starts on September 7, 2021 and will be open until November 5, 2021. It provides an update on tuberculosis today and the challenges posed by drug resistance and therapeutic advances.
The MOOC Viruses and Human Cancers, directed by Jean-Pierre Vartanian offers a broad overview of the state of knowledge on viruses associated with cancer, the different mechanisms of carcinogenesis, the host immune response and progress in preventing tumors. The MOOC is broadcasted from September 3, 2021 to October 30, 2021.
