Feel constrained by your introductory college biology series and timetable? Why don't you just teach yourself instead.

Their offerings are focused on the life sciences at the moment, but I can see this easily growing. The next question is how to assess proficiency and scale against conventional college credit systems.

Of course, if you're doing it for love of knowledge all of that is irrelevant. Honestly, I would have killed for this as a kid with all the time I spent reading encyclopedia & journal articles for fun.

It had occurred to me that it might interest you. How you'll use it, or get others museum flunkies to, remains to be seen.
