The first season of the Mooc NECTAR gathered 2700 people from 87 countries and more than 90% wished to follow a new version.
For the second edition, the MOOC NECTAR proposes you a reverse pedagogy, as a new way to learn.

We propose to identify what you want and need tolearn and position your knowledge in relation to those that will be bring to you throughout the MOOC. This reverse pedagogy will allow you to think about your own practices through both theoretical inputs and knowledge co-construction, where any participant can enrich the community from his own observations.

Partners : he ‘Vine & Wine’ MOOC by Montpellier SupAgro, Bordeaux Sciences Agro, AgroSup Dijon and Toulouse INP-ENSAT. The concept and the creation of this MOOC was achieved through teamwork between the four top French schools of Agriculture ‘Les Grandes Ecoles d’Agronomie’ renowned for the quality of teaching and scientific knowhow in viticulture and oenology. The French research institute ‘INRA’ also participated by providing scientific data. On completing this international online course, participants with a Bachelor or Master degree or with significant professional experience are encouraged to continue studying. Enroll on a course at a Higher Education Establishment such as 'L'Institut des hautes études de la vigne et du vin de Montpellier SupAgro’ where you can find several masters including ‘vigne et vin’, ‘Vinifera European Master’ and ‘Master 2 Commerce des vins’.

Medical entomology - Insect vectors and transmission of pathogens

Course starts: 06/02/2017 - Course ends : 20/03/2017 - Duration : 6 semaines / weeks
Registration until 18/03/2017

The MOOC Medical entomology focuses on the insects and arthropods that impact human health as well as the associated diseases, such as malaria, dengue, Zika, Lyme borreliosis, Chagas disease… The countries of the intertropical zone are primarily concerned by these vector-borne diseases, but temperate zones become more and more concerned because of the recent introduction of vectorial diseases and spread of invasive vector species.
Understanding the relationships between vectors, pathogens and vertebrates is fundamental in the study of vector-borne diseases. Consequently, this MOOC will focus on mosquitoes, other hematophagous insects and ticks, arbovirosis and parasitic diseases, like new approaches for a better control.

The videos are in English subtitled in French and in English.
