MOOC on the origins of Mankind (in French)

Split into 6 sections, the MOOC guides you through the classification of living things and helps you discover the history of our species, our origins and evolution.

The chosen theme, “The origins of Mankind”, is an opportunity to explore the themes developed in the Galerie de l’Homme in more detail and to share the latest scientific discoveries and the many questions raised by this vast subject. From the African origins of the human lineage 7 million years ago right up to today, the MOOC explores Mankind’s great journey.
