University of Michigan
Internet History, Technology and Security – University of Michigan. Self-paced online course.

The impact of technology and networks on our lives, culture, and society continues to increase. The very fact that you can take this course from anywhere in the world requires a technological infrastructure that was designed, engineered, and built over the past sixty years. To function in an information-centric world, we need to understand the workings of network technology. This course will open up the Internet and show you how it was created, who created it and how it works. Along the way we will meet many of the innovators who developed the Internet and Web technologies that we use today.

This course consists of 12 hours of videos and quizzes.

University of Virginia
New Models of Business in Society –University of Virginia. Self-paced online course.

A number of new models of business can be built on this idea such as corporate responsibility, philanthropy, shared value and sustainability. Profits and stakeholder value go together, and this course explains how. The final session explores the idea of how to become a stakeholder entrepreneur and create a business that makes money and makes the world a better place.

This course consists of 4 hours of videos and quizzes.

University of Washington
Introduction to Public Speaking – University of Washington. Self-paced online course.
Unlike many oral communication courses and textbooks, this class spends a fair bit of time working through the unique traits of oral versus written communication in order to help students prepare speeches that are easier to deliver orally and understand aurally. The class’s focus on understanding the key parts of an argument and drafting clear and concise arguments translates directly to other academic assignments. The class will study the principles of argumentation and arrangement; critically examine our own speeches and the speeches of others.
