This online institute is an interactive video-based training program that appeals to any individual who is passionate to know more about Earth history and to acquire a deeper understanding of the science behind the discoveries.

Courses and Lectures

A small investment in You, that pays enormous dividends in Yourself

Searching for credible information from someone with the experience and credentials to help you learn? Know you are sharing an online educational experience with a researcher actively engaged in Origins science, who frequently publishes peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature. I am someone who can tie together disparate ideas into a coherent narrative. As a University Professor at an AAU Tier 1 Research Institution, I have helped over 4000 students in 20+ years of teaching to achieve their goals.

Your professor

Membership offers you instant access to on-demand lectures and other materials as they are produced. Course presentations are provided in video lecture format, and are scheduled to be released in weekly module sets. We offer high-level content with one click, as well as downloadable resources that include supplementary reading materials and other information. The courses are designed to include scheduled interactive components akin to "office hours" wherein your Professor is available to answer questions and offer, perspective, advice and additional insights. Live recitations are also planned, depending on demand and availability.

How it works

You will learn why the contemporary Earth looks the way it does, how it was different in the deep past, and why our neighboring planets (Venus, Mars) do not mimic this development. What is the origin, structure, composition and dynamics of the Earth? What is the chemical make-up of the materials that compose the planet, their mechanical properties and how they operate and interact in different processes (e.g. weathering, denudation, plate tectonics, volcanism, metamorphism, etc.) Here, we will learn to examine the evolution of the Earth System through geologic time. We will focus on major events in Earth history as recognized in the geological record.
