This course provides some basic but very valuable introduction to structural mechanics, mainly applied to architectural structures (buildings, bridges...) Just perfect for those with no prior knowledge who want to understand how engineering structures are designed to resist loads, and how these behave under applied loads of various sorts.
The proposed material is very diverse: lectures, illustrative videos, simulator to play with concepts, calculations (very basic maths), hands-on activities, forum discussions...
The course team is very engaging and provides extremely clear explanations. The teaching method is excellent!
A course I definitely recommend for the above-discussed purpose!
