Below is a collection of links to online astronomy lecture notes and
other course content for undergraduate and graduate courses I have
taught at Ohio State. Links are only provided for the most recent
instance of a course (many courses have been taught multiple times).
More recent courses (starting in 2014) have made extensive use of the
OSU Carmen learning management system,
and do not have public course content.
