Energy Efficiency in the Home
Recorded: Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 @ 5:30 pm - 5:50 pm HST
Duration: 20 mins
The goal of this six-week online course is to educate Hawaii high school environmental science students grades 9-12 on how to find alternative energy solutions in the home. These solutions will reduce energy use in each of four areas; lighting, water heating, large appliances, and reduction of phantom loads. Upon completion of the course, learners will be able to provide energy solutions, such as CFL bulbs, shorter showers, use of clothes line, eliminating phantom loads, etc., with the outcome of lowering overall energy consumption in the home. Students will also be able to determine energy consumption and research alternative energy solutions. The course will be facilitated asynchronously through Canvas by Instructure course management software. Students use readings and videos freely available on the Internet with opportunities for synchronous collaboration.
