BIG NEWS: Introduction to Complexity is now open year-round!

Ocean wind

By popular demand, and to serve our mission of ‘make complexity science accessible to all’, we’ve decided that Introduction to Complexity should be available all year round. 

So we made it happen! You can now start and complete Intro to Complexity at any time! All course units and supporting materials will remain exactly the same as previous years, but will be made accessible immediately upon the course opening on April 9th, 2018. With this change in format you will be able to complete the course and earn your certificate at your own pace, any time of the year

We hope by offering Introduction to Complexity continuously we will reach more people who are fitting their complexity learning experience into already complex life schedules!  In order to make this successful, though, we need your feedback about how this new format is working as you complete the course and earn your certificate. 

The same video lectures that we know and love will be in place, as well as the quizzes, exams, and homeworks. All course materials were designed by the benificent and brilliant Melanie Mitchell, developer of the Introduction to Complexity course, Professor of Computer Science at Portland State University, and External Professor and Member of the Science Board at the Santa Fe Institute.

Course instruction will be provided by an alumni of the Santa Fe Institute’s Complex Systems Summer School. That exact person is still to be determined, so stay tuned! They will be available in weekly office hours and via email to answer questions, monitor forums, and support your learning.    

As Complexity Explorer grows and changes, we are always striving for better ways to deliver awesome complex systems science content. Let us know how you feel about this change, and we look forward to keeping our community of complexity scholars supported and engaged this year! Dig in to Introduction to Complexity, and enjoy!
