Section Description

This online course is designed as an introduction to the concepts related to energy utilization in nutritional science, and the application of these concepts to our daily lives.

Section Expectation

This is an entirely online ?Web-based? course. You will have unlimited access to the course Website between July 14, 2014 and August 8, 2014. You are free to work through the lessons and activities at your own pace. However, you will be required to complete seven short (10 questions each) online quizzes after each lesson. You will also be required to complete a personal 3-day dietary record of your entire food intake, and a three day record of your physical activity estimates. You will then be required to analyze your diet using a diet analysis tool and draft a personal action plan. Finally, since this is a newly developed online course, we are very interested in obtaining feedback on all aspects of the course (usability of the website, clarity of the course content, usefulness of the course activities and videos, etc.). So, you will be required to complete a course evaluation (not graded) at the end of the course.
