I’m very excited to announce that the OEDb has just launched a massive Free Online Open Courses Directoryorganizing nearly 10,000 free courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The free courses are available in a variety of formats including full courses, video lectures, audio lectures, text articles, and mixed media.
The courses are searchable and cover everything from Adobe Photoshop to 20th Century Literature in the following subject areas:
- Engineering & Computers
- Liberal Arts
Here are ten that I’d like to take:
- Learn How To Put On Your Own Webinar – This course is a comprehensive “How To” on webinars. You will learn about the different types of webinars and how to create each type. You will learn about what webinar tools are available both paid and free resources.
- Artificial Intelligence- Introduction to Robotics – The purpose of this course is to introduce you to basics of modeling, design, planning, and control of robot systems. In essence, the material treated in this course is a brief survey of relevant results from geometry, kinematics, statics, dynamics, and control.
- Exploring Black Holes – Study of physical effects in the vicinity of a black hole as a basis for understanding general relativity, astrophysics, and elements of cosmology. Extension to current developments in theory and observation. Energy and momentum in flat spacetime; the metric; curvature of spacetime near rotating and nonrotating centers of attraction; trajectories and orbits of particles and light; elementary models of the Cosmos.
