INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICS: 2000 YEARS OF PHYSICS LANDMARKS! (online video course)
Want to study physics abroad in Europe — virtually? In this great online video course from Udacity, you’ll learn the basics of physics on location in Italy, the Netherlands and the UK, by answering some of the discipline’s major questions from over the last 2000 years. This homeschool-friendly course taught by a delightfully geeky but personable teen is great for physics beginners!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE…!
To tell you the truth, there is not just this one, but actually 11 complete physics, science, statistics, software and math courses at the Udacity site, and all of them are innovative and well done, at levels from jr. high through college students. Yes, you do have to sign up for their classes, but no, they do not try to sell you anything. As the site states: “Udacity is a totally new kind of learning experience. You learn by solving challenging problems and pursuing udacious projects with world-renowned university instructors (not by watching long, boring lectures). At Udacity, we put you, the student, at the center of the universe.”
