Url: http://www.meted.ucar.edu/volcanic_ash/volcanism/
Publisher: University Corporation for Atmospheric Research
Description: This learning module from the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research will help students learn more about volcanics. The course aims to help students identify the geological elements involved in volcanic eruptions, locate currently active volcanoes and major fault lines and plate boundaries in the world, describe the process of an explosive volcanic eruption and more. Eruption dynamics, volcanic regions, eruption types and other related facets of volcanics are described in this module.

A print-friendly version of the material, student quiz, media gallery, technical notes and user survey are also available on the site. This interactive online learning module would be a great addition to earth science or geology coursework; instructors may choose to assign completion of the online module to students independent of classwork, as the module is very easy to follow and provides a great deal of in-depth information on the topic.
