Professor Krishna Garikipati was inspired to develop the Introduction to Continuum Physics MOOC in order to provide a high level, online course on continuum physics that encompasses applications in solid and fluid biomechanics, as well as materials science. This MOOC features lectures on graduate level physics material that combine advanced calculus with linear algebra and incorporates peer reviewed assignments and collaborative, small group assignments. Introduction to Continuum Physics builds off Professor Garikipati’s experience creating the Finite Element Method for Problems in Physics MOOC, his first course to offer sophisticated graduate-level topics through a MOOC. With the Introduction to Continuum Physics MOOC Professor Garikapati continues to deliver specialized courses on advanced topics within physics to learners around the world.
