The goal of our project was to create an interactive online educational resource about sustainability and shale gas to be applied in a curriculum at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. We developed a website using WordPress, conducted interviews with faculty and students to gauge website usability, and developed surveys to investigate social perceptions of shale gas in Europe. The project resulted in the creation of an interactive website that can augment the learning experience at the university.
