Massive Online Open Courses

The production of a MOOC called “Dopez vos calculs : La performance des supercalculateurs à votre portée” has started in 2018 with Atlanstic 2020 and Centrale Nantes fundings. The main goal is to provide training for people who need to use supercomputers. 

This MOOC is composed of three weeks :

  • Week 1 : what supercomputers are, where can we find them, and shows the basis of usage
  • Week 2 : how to estimate computing needs, evaluate the time saving, and then, it shows how to run computations and sharing resources
  • Week 3 : firsts steps of parallel programming.

That production is worn by Hugues Digonnet, mainly assisted by the supercomputing team, by TICE team, and some internships and PhDs.

The first session is planned for autumn 2021. It will be the first MOOC about supercomputers in french spoken language.

The teaser is already available.
