As of late September 2016, CenUSA is offering a free online course: Introduction to Perennial Grasses for Biofuels.

CenUSA Bioenergy’s new on-line, self-paced course is intended for learners age 14 and up. The course, known as a MOOC* was developed by members of CenUSA's Education and Outreach and Extension Objectives and covers a variety of topics related to perennial grasses intended for use as biofuel.

Specific course topics include an introduction to perennial grasses as a feedstock, perennial grass growth and development, establishment of perennial grass stands, stand management, and biochar as a co-product.

Learners will discover these topics in a self-directed manner through the use of videos, extension articles, lessons, and quizzes. The course is free, open to the public and offers various participation badges.
