MOOC Watch: Brian Schmidt's online courses now available on demand Read more: http://www.afr.com/technology/apps/education/mooc-watch-brian-schmidts-online-courses-now-available-on-demand-20150827-gj9jhs#ixzz3kJkLkl7T Follow us: @FinancialReview on Twitter | financialreview on Facebook

The series of four massive open online courses (MOOCs) on astrophysics featuring Nobel prize winner Brian Schmidt  of the Australian National University, is now available on demand. Instead of having to wait until the university and MOOC provider edX schedule the courses again, you can do them at any time.
The four MOOCs: Greatest Unsolved Mysteries of the UniverseAstrophysics: Exploring ExoplanetsCosmology, and The Violent Universe each take about three hours' study a week for nine or ten weeks. Together they make up ANU's first-year Astrophysics course. Not bad to be able to do it free and be taught by Professor Schmidt, a Nobel prize winner, who tag teams with the ANU's Paul Francis in teaching the course.
Although it won't earn you credit towards an ANU degree, you can get a verified certificate of completion for $50  a course.
The courses are designed for people who want a deeper understanding of current developments in astrophysics than they get from popular science articles and TV shows.  The Cosmology course has two other well-known astrophysicists as guest lecturers, Brian Cox and Lawrence Krauss.
Each week MOOC Watch brings you news about massive open online courses and digital education.
