Redesign of a Pilot International Online Course on Accelerator Driven Systems for Nuclear Transmutation to implement a Massive Open Online Course

The redesign of an online international pilot course on Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS) is explained, to implement a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). The pilot course was developed and run within the project ENEN-III from the 7th Framework Programme. An extensive search on international open online educational resources in nuclear engineering was made, thus demonstrating the suitability of this work. The redesign is explained in the framework of MOOCs learning methodology. This work was presented in the International Youth Nuclear Congress IYNC2014.
