Penn State’s College of Earth and Mineral Science Open Educational Resources initiative offers educational resources for students and learner’s worldwide. Instructor Sarma Pisupati’s “Residential Energy Consumption” is an interactive activity developed for his class on Energy and the Environment. This exercise takes you through the home room-by-room calculating energy usage, environmental impact and strategies for reducing energy consumption. Most of Penn State’s open resources are used in formal online courses in which students register to gain access to Penn State faculty and to earn academic credit.
