Do you want to develop the skills and knowledge needed to help preserve tropical coastal ecosystems? These habitats provide goods and services for hundreds of millions of people but human activities have led to their global decline. TROPIC101x will introduce you to the incredible plants and animals that create these unique ecosystems. You will go on to explore the challenges these ecosystems are facing such as overfishing, coastal pollution, ocean warming and acidification, then learn about some techniques being used to tackle these problems. Lectures will be delivered by leading experts. Many of them were filmed on-site in the Great Barrier Reef, at The University of Queensland’s research station on Heron Island. The course concludes with an innovative virtual ecology project, where you will have the option to take part in a citizen science project. Join us on an exciting journey, as you develop new knowledge and skills, during this beautiful and engaging course!

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most financially costly disease in developed countries. Even if knowledge of molecular changes in Alzheimer’s disease is extensive, and new areas of investigation have been explored, the cognitive trajectory of Alzheimer’s disease is still unknown, as it was in 1906, when this disease was described for the first time.

This self-paced course focuses on a recent and innovative approach in the field of Alzheimer’s disease research. Multiple evidences indicate that oxidative stress and free radicals damage the cellular functions. Specifically, oxidative damage is a marker to identify the initial state of the disease.

Starting from a critical analysis of Alzheimer’s disease history, Dr. Perry, a worldwide expert in the field, explains the sequence of events leading to damage, and the source of increased oxygen radicals along with mechanisms to provide more effective treatment.

This course is open to anyone, but will be of particular relevance to professionals and caregivers who deal with patients affected by Alzheimer’s. Considering the multidisciplinary approach, and the importance of a correct lifestyle to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease, this course is also targeted to healthcare professionals such as nutritionists or cardiologists.

Do you have a personal improvement goal that has proven resistant to your sincerest intentions, smartest plans, and best efforts? If so, then this course is for you. Last spring, we kicked off a world-wide experiment to see if Kegan and Lahey’s ground-breaking, award-winning approach (the Immunity to Change process) could be deployed online to help tens of thousands of people make lasting changes at work or in their private lives. The experiment was largely a success! Many participants succeeded at making important changes in their lives. Here’s what our students have to say:

  • “When I first started, I was a bit skeptical on how I would actually change. Looking back at myself 14 weeks ago and comparing it with how I am now is incredible! I couldn't be happier that I decided to take this course and learn a new approach to change. My life is so much better because of it.”
  • “Someone asked me recently if I felt like I'd just wasted 14 whole weeks on self-inquiry. I can honestly say no - I feel like I wasted 30 years sleepwalking!  An incredible experience. Bob and Lisa have created a truly wondrous process, and the staff and fellow students have built a rich and supportive learning environment.” 
  • “I appreciated the opportunity to feel like I was a part of a bigger community striving to grow and improve. This made me want to constantly push myself because I believed in the power behind the material and in the power of being part of a community working toward similar goals.”
  • “This has been an amazing course and I have made long lasting changes that I didn't even dream about when I began this course. There is no way to express my deepest thank you for that . . . my life is changed.”

This fall, we invite you to join us in a continuation of this experimental personal development course. Via demonstrations, exercises, readings, personal experiments, and novel interactive tools, this course will teach you new psychological theory about personal change, but—more than this—it will engage you in applying that theory to yourself from the first class to the last.

In 2011 Oprah Winfrey listed the Top Ten Things You Should Do to Start the New Year Right. Number One on the list was, “Try the Immunity-to-Change approach.” Come, join us!

This course runs from Tuesday, September 16 to Monday, December 15, 2014. It begins on September 16 with a one-week orientation. The orientation is designed to introduce you to the culture of the community we will form together and the technology we will use. Some of you may not need the full week to complete the orientation. The substance of the course begins a week later, on September 23.

HarvardX pursues the science of learning. By registering as an online learner in an HX course, you will also participate in research about learning. Read our research statement to learn more.


This is a past/archived course. At this time, you can only explore this course in a self-paced fashion. Certain features of this course may not be active, but many people enjoy watching the videos and working with the materials. Make sure to check for reruns of this course.
