Understanding Anxiety, Depression and CBT - Online Course. The Feynman Lectures on Physics, The Most Popular Physics Book Ever Written, Now Completely Online. Image by Tamiko Thiel, via Wikimedia Commons Last fall, we let you know that Caltech and The Feynman Lectures Website joined forces to create an online edition of The Feynman Lectures on Physics.

The Feynman Lectures on Physics, The Most Popular Physics Book Ever Written, Now Completely Online

They started with Volume 1. And now they’ve followed up with Volume 2 and Volume 3, making the collection complete. First presented in the early 1960s at Caltech by the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, the lectures were eventually turned into a book by Feynman, Robert B. Leighton, and Matthew Sands. The new online edition makes The Feynman Lectures on Physics available in HTML5. The Feynman Lectures on Physics is now listed in our collections of Free eBooks and Free Textbooks.

A Hands-on Introduction to Engineering Simulations. In this hands-on course, you’ll learn how to perform engineering simulations using a powerful tool from ANSYS, Inc.

A Hands-on Introduction to Engineering Simulations

This is a problem-based course where you’ll learn by doing. The focus will be on understanding what’s under the blackbox so as to move beyond garbage-in, garbage-out. You’ll practice using a common solution approach to problems involving different physics: structural mechanics, fluid dynamics and heat transfer. We’ll solve textbook examples to understand the fundamental principles of finite-element analysis and computational fluid dynamics. Then we’ll apply these principles to simulate real-world examples in the tool including a bolted rocket assembly and a wind turbine rotor.We’ll discuss current industry practices with a SpaceX engineer. This course teaches fundamental concepts and tool use in an integrated fashion using the power of online learning. Join us to discover why simulations have changed how engineering is done and how you can be a part of this revolution.

Sustainability Science – A Key Concept for Future Design. Sustainability is indispensable for the future of humankind.

Sustainability Science – A Key Concept for Future Design

Sustainability science has emerged as an effort to tackle the complex problems the world is facing today. Lecturers from different disciplines provide a holistic overview of key issues in sustainability including industrial pollution, an aging society, human-nature connection, urban planning, resilience, environmental governance, and education for sustainable development. Introduction to Biology - The Secret of Life. Read fully to understand the verified-certificate option.

Introduction to Biology - The Secret of Life

Join Professor Eric Lander and the MITx Biology team in a newly restructured introductory biology learning experience. All original 7.00x course materials are available here for exploration and completion, including video and interactive problem sets and exams. We strongly encourage you to work through the activities, towards a goal of learning biology. In this version of the course, we have kept the course content the same while optimizing the course settings for learning: instant feedback after trying problems and all content available at all times. We now offer a more thorough and robust means of certifying edX learners in their mastery of the MITx introductory biology content, through a new MITx 7.00x Introduction to Biology Competency Exam. 7.00x is an introductory level biology course hosted by professor Eric Lander, who was one of the leaders of the Human Genome Project.

The Science and Politics of the GMO. What exactly are genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and why do scientists develop them?

The Science and Politics of the GMO

Studying the science of GMOs helps us understand biotechnology’s potential role in addressing challenges in agriculture. In this introductory Food and Nutrition course, you will learn the basics of genetic engineering, explore the political debate around the GMO and review the arguments for and against their use. We will study the politics surrounding the GMO and its impact at both an individual level and to society as a whole; including the problems, perceptions, benefits, and risks associated with GMOs.

Important to understanding the complexities around this topic we will not only be looking at the science behind how the GMO works, but also to the limitations of this science. 30 cursos online gratis acreditados por universidades de Canadá - Más Oportunidades. 1200 Free Online Courses from Top Universities Open Culture.

Lo mismo pasa con las películas de estreno, los videojuegos, los libros y los programas de computación. Para las personas que nos dedicamos a la ciencia, esas son cosas secundarias. Nosotros pirateamos artículos científicos (papers, en nuestra jerga). Cuando hacía mi tesis de pregrado, allá por el 2008, sufrí mucho para conseguir literatura científica actualizada.
