Online Diabetes Course

For those who aren't aware of this resource. offers a wide variety of online courses from some of the world's best universities and colleges. The courses are completely free though usually there is an optional charge of $35 to get a verified certificate upon completion. In the free package you still get a regular certificate provided you complete all the quizzes and assignments. The workload is reasonable, around five or six hours a week.
Right now one of the courses is an excellent series of tutorials on Diabetes - causes, management, physiology etc. - offered by the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
If you are interested in exploring this resource the first step is to go to and sign up for a free membership. All that is required is that you provide a valid e-mail address and a personal password.
Once that is done you can search for courses by providing a keyword. Type in diabetes and it should give a link to the University of Copenhagen course, which incidentally is offered in English, as are most of these courses.
The course started a week ago but you can still sign up. Time is running out though as the deadline to complete the first assignments is this coming Tuesday. Incidentally, you are not required to complete the assignments unless you want to earn a certificate upon completion. You can if you want simply watch the tutorials and follow the discussion forums, though the quizzes and essay assignments are a great part of the learning process.
Once you are signed in you have access to the video tutorials on diabetes related topics, as well as a discussion forum where you can interact with other students from around the world, and the weekly quizzes.
In addition to the diabetes course at there are numerous health related courses from different parts of the world, as well a wide variety of computer and science related courses. The diabetes course is a good starting point, I would imagine, for folks already using Tudiabetes.
