I have completed the lectures for my online 2014 Introduction to Planetary Science and Astronomy Course at California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH): All lectures are free and online at and you can earn a Certificate of Achievement for watching them. You can learn more about the class on the same web page including syllabus and assignments.In a nutshell, I tried to give an entertaining introduction to planetary science, light on math and heavy on pretty pictures with explanations, as well as in the last couple lectures covering the broader universe (stars, galaxies, Big Bang, etc.). The class, taught in participation with the distance learning experts at CSUDH, was offered for college credit to those high school juniors and seniors in their Young Scholar program. Anyone who watches all the lectures can now earn a Certificate of Achievement to download from The Planetary Society.
