Title: Creating the Digital Curriculum for Nanotechnology
Abstract: Omni Nano is developing digital curricula for the classrooms of the 21st century, to be used in traditional classrooms or virtual learning environments. Our initial courses focus on Nanotechnology, a new and upcoming field of science and engineering. Our educational materials implement innovative teaching methods such as the flipped classroom model, where students can increase their learning potential through project-based learning and group activities. The mix of interactive and multimedia content with applications to real-world problems gives every student something to connect with and be inspired by. Our digital curriculum is accessible through popular Learning Management Systems (LMS), such as Canvas, and in February 2018, we launched a MOOC (massive open online course) to serve students all around the world. Courses based on our curricula have been taught at over 25 schools in the US, including the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and West Los Angeles Community College (WLAC).
