Perhaps you have already heard that time is the fourth dimension. But what does it really mean ? For example, how different people could experiment time in different ways, and why we assume that size of things depends on their velocity ? Why the speed of light is impassable ? And in the end : is time travel possible, and how ? Good news : after this 40 hours MOOC, you will deeply understand Albert Einstein’s special theory of relativity, its concepts and predictions !
Beyond the theory, this MOOC provides great knowledge about Albert Einstein and how he built this theory. It also highlights the paradoxes of the special theory of relativity.
The professor of this special theory of relativity MOOC is Dr. Larry Lagerstrom, Director of Academic Programs at Stanford University’s Center for Professional Development. This course is free if you only want to read the content of the course and to watch the videos. You will have to pay a few dollars if you want to access all of the course, including rating homework, and to have an official certificate to print or to share (on LinkedIn for example).
