Eleven days ago I mentioned a free and open Computer Science 101 course being offered through Stanford University. Today, through Open Culture, I learned that Stanford is offering thirteen other free and open online courses during the spring semester. One of the courses that might be appropriate for high school juniors and seniors interested in pursuing college programs in healthcare is an introductory anatomy course. The course description promises quizzes that students can use for self-assessment and self-pacing through the course. You can watch an introduction to the course in the video below.
Applications for Education
Open courses like the above mentioned Stanford courses can be a good way for high school students to further their education before leaving high school and moving on to college. If you’re interested in discovering more free and open courses, Open Culture has a list of more than 400 courses organized by content area.
