Once I started offering classes online, I discovered that taking an online class is a very different experience than taking one in person. For instance, an 80-minute lecture, which may be palatable in a regular class, is much more difficult to take online. I will not claimed that I have cracked the code on online learning, but I am learning and these classes represent my first steps.

Description
Online variants
Accounting This is my version of an accounting class, designed to take the minimal amounts I know about acccounting and use that to create a class on how best to read financial statements and use the data from those statements as raw material in corporate finance and valuation. Be warned! I cut corners and make pragmatic choices that may make accounting purists faint. My site

Foundations of Finance This is a short class, comprised of nine sessions, that looks at the foundational concepts in finance, from what comprises a business to how to measure cash flows and risk to the time value of money to the basics of valuing stocks, bonds and options. It is a good first course to take if you have no finance background and are interested in taking mycorporate finance and valuation courses. My site

Corporate Finance Online (Book/ Online Class to accompany Applied Corporate Finance 4th Edition) This is an entirely online version of the class, composed of 36 sessions of 12-15 minutes apiece that covers what I do in a regular MBA class.

Investment Philosophies Online(Book/Online Class) This is a class that I have not taught in the classroom but decided to teach entirely as an online class, tying the sessions closed to my book on Investment Philosophies. The Symynd/Wiley version of the site is not free but you get a bundle with the book (at about the same price as the book, standing alone). My site
