How SAO WorksCustom-made course material is delivered via a fully online system with accompanying downloadable PDF files. Each of our normal units contain around 1500 slides written by a variety of professional astronomers. There are 18 units to choose from, 14 of which are accompanied by course material, as well as 4 major project units. SAO also incorporates animations, websites and guest contributions on the latest astronomy headlines. Students interact with instructors (all of whom are professional astronomers) and fellow classmates via asynchronous newsgroups and email, allowing you to study at a time that suits you.
