The Geosynthetic Institute’s online Designing with Geosynthetics course is now available. The complete distance-learning course follows exactly the 914-page Designing with Geosynthetics textbook and it is now available by using the Adobe Connect platform.
Subdivided into 15 sections, each of the 1,540 slides has a brief voice-over describing it as contrasted to the relevant page in the textbook. In this regard, an e-book version of the textbook (available for $7) should accompany these newly prepared course notes so as to provide a one-to-one comparison.
The total effort is comparable to a complete academic year of geosynthetics, as has been taught for many years at Drexel University and other colleges and universities as well.
The total online course is available from GSI for $1,000 (members) or $3,000 (non-members) and the viewing window is open for six months. If desired, a certificate of completion is available upon successfully passing a 150-question multiple-choice examination (i.e., 10 questions per section).
