• There are four courses: beginner, intermediate, advanced and chimpanzee.
  • Each course contains numerous modules (13 total).
  • Each module contains the following four lessons.
  1. Aims

  2. Method

  3. Results

  4. Discussion



Provides an overview of the module and the concepts that will be introduced.

Press Mark Complete on the top right hand to move to the method lesson.

The purpose of the method lesson is to explain how an experiment was undertaken.

Experiments are either observational (e.g. on chimpanzees) or controlled within experimental conditions.

Controlled experiments use a randomised intervention. Figure 1 has an example of a randomised controlled trial with two factors.

After reading the experimental method, take a prediction quiz. It tests your ability to predict collaborative behaviour.

Only one correct answer is needed to pass, however understanding the significance of all the questions helps complete the module.

Press Complete Quiz (and the Take a Quiz button becomes Mark Incomplete) .

Prediction quiz answers are cited in discussing the results of the experiment.

Badges feature when EUCRM corresponds with an experimental result. Each badge is a link to the relevant part of the EUCRM framework.

To learn EUCRM, please consider the piece of EUCRM theory in parallel with the experimental result.

Next, take a comprehension quiz to assess your understanding of the module.



This lesson discusses implications of the comprehension quiz answers, and from there gives a take-home message. Both of these may extrapolate the module beyond small groups and into leadership considerations or perhaps wider society.

Useful strategies for creating and sustaining collaboration are presented.
