Dear all,

We are happy to officially announce the availability of e-neutrons.org<http://e-neutrons.org>: An e-learning platform for neutron scattering.

The platform was developed with support from NMI3-II (EU-FP7) and features an introductory course in neutron scattering and muon spin spectroscopy. The courses contain a varied selection of interactive learning material using three main technologies

1.  A “WIKIbook” built on Mediawiki with various extensions, e.g. for producing mathematical expressions. It is used as the main source of textbook-material

2.  A Learning Management System (LMS) built on Moodle which , provides exercises, quizzes and evaluation

3.  A web simulator for the McStas neutron instrument simulation program, allowing users to perform virtual neutron scattering experiments on predefined instruments

The platform will be further developed and the learning material expanded in connection with SINE2020 (EU-H2020).

To access the e-learning portal, go to https://www.e-neutrons.org, choose “Get an account” and fill in your personal information.

We hope that you will enjoy this new resource and encourage you to try it out!

On behalf of the e-neutrons.org<http://e-neutrons.org> team,

Peter Willendrup

For background information on the platform, the teaching material and didactical considerations, please read the related article from Neutron News Volume 24, Issue 1, 2013 - DOI:10.1080/10448632.2013.751795.
