Blue House Energy online courses use animations, graphics, and videos to illustrate the science behind energy efficient home construction. Our team of experts has created an easy way to learn about some tricky concepts.

The visuals have a voiceover that clearly explains each concept. ‘Learn More’ buttons take you to more in-depth information about a particular topic.

The courses are made up of modules. Within the modules are subject categories that are broken out into topics. The categories are in the top menu, and the topics are in drop down menus. Point and click to access them, just like a website. The navigation bar along the bottom lets you jump back or forward, pause, replay, and set the volume.
