Online Astronomy Resources?

Recommended Posts

Hey there, this post is just asking if anyone of you know of where there are online astronomy courses that you can just do when you feel, or just a great site for everything about our solar system and other galaxies and such (all astronomy related information), I'm wanting to spread my interest in the most laziest way xD (gah I'm so bad)

Try "future learn"..its a free online course which involves the higgs boson but also incorporates general knowledge of the universe, there are noi qualifications at the end of it but knowledge is there to be gained.

Just Google. ."future learn" and it will give a list of courses.

Hope this helps.

Bungielad.

Thank you very much for that link. Unfortunately the course doesn't start until February, so I will keep that website in mind and take a look around :) I'm not doing it just for my own knowledge, it'll be my girlfriend looking through it too :)

Seem to start at various times.

Think, but not 100% sure, that the OU do some small free courses, may well include one or two for astronomy.

Not sure how to track them down.

Had this marked, no idea what it is, or is like, or if it costs:

Fairly sure there is a couple more, but they could have specific start dates.

The OU ones are called OpenLearn, appear free, no idea if there are associated dates or anything:

Scroll to bottom of the page and click See All from Physics and Astronomy, displays quite a few more.

OpenLearn website is:
