Mark Rieger (Administrator) courses are excellent resources for several biology disciplines. It is as if they have crowdsourced a course, putting together readings, videos, and assignments from various professors and internet sites. All is OER. They offer a certificate of completion. This would be a real time-saver for young faculty just getting started in teaching biological sciences.
