The Open University is hosting a web page devoted to the upcoming Darwin 200 anniversary.  Usefully, it’s also the 150th anniversary of the publication of the Origin of Species (free e-book, web book), possibly the most influential work in science ever (your starter for ’10’!).

Of course, I can be accused of a little bias since the site is the work of my colleagues at the OU, but it’s a more graphically pleasing route to finding courses such as Darwin and Evolution than the standard OU website!  The course is one of a number of Science Short Courses that expect no prior qualification, but which reflect topical issues in science – the courses are very popular, and offer a relatively low commitment introduction to distance learning via the Open University.
