AAPG Student Chapters Eligible for Free Licenses for Interactive Learning Modules / Courses
 AAPG Education is now able to offer scholarships to five U.S.-based AAPG Student Chapters and fiveglobal AAPG Student Chapters (10 students per chapter) for year-long licenses for three full-lengthcourses that cover upstream and downstream operations through a partnership with AAPG and theOPEN Initiative. The scholarships are being funded by a donation by the SGS Group and Techno-Media.The Petro-Ed courses feature robust graphics, simulations and automated, interactive learning modules.They are completely self-paced and can be used as a supplement to existing courses. For links to the fullcatalogue and to see more samples of the animations, visit the course descriptions and links below, or click here:http://www.aapg.org/education/online/petroed.cfm This is a wonderful opportunity for AAPG chapters and student members. While it is not unusual to findopen-access learning objects on the web, such as quizzes, interactive maps, interactive instructionaldiagrams, full lessons that develop knowledge and skills can be quite expensive, particularly in areassuch as petroleum exploration and development. Qualifying student chapters will have access to threecourses at no cost.Scholarships for three separate online interactive learning courses are available for the following online,interactive module-based courses, which are completely self-guided, with automated reviews andquizzes. There is no instructor interaction, which makes them an ideal complement to traditionalclassroom-based courses, and an effective supplement to course texts and lab materials.Apply for the ScholarshipPlease send an e-mail to Dr. Susan Nash (snash@aapg.org), Director of Education and ProfessionalDevelopment, AAPG.
