Coursera is one that does this.

Duke university offers one on physiology to help you understand how your body systems work together (useful for overall better science literacy).

Johns Hopkins has one on Covid-19 epidemiology to understand the spread and outbreaks.

If you want to learn more about the immune system, there's an Intro Immunology course by Rice university.

For Canadians (and others), there's one on Indigenous Canada that give context and history to the Indigenous populations and culture. This is a good one to check out as it will provide a different way to see the country and its peoples, and maybe help change the conversation we have around FNMI (First Nations, Metis, Indigenous) people.

Coursera has an Immunology specialization called "Fundamentals of Immunology" with 3 courses by Rice University. I have finished the first two and HIGHLY recommend it. The content and the teacher are great.

I enjoyed those immunology courses a lot

As for CME, I did a few random ones through random orgs, and a large chunk was the controlled substances education to be able to prescribe in CA but that was like $200.

MyCME and Figure1 both have free CME opportunities that you should check out!

I think you are missing a lot of steps in between.

Look up what the thymus does.

Look up the function of Treg cells.

Look up immune memory B cells in the lymphoid organs.

Look up how researchers believe it is “a two-way street” where beta cells may also be signaling their own destruction.

It’s great you are thinking about it!

Unfortunately, it is unlikely as “the cause” is both genetic and environmental, and within genetics there is a lot of heterogeneity — meaning each person will have. a mixture of markers that are both putting the person at higher risk and are thought to be protective.

For LOTS of answers and more questions — listen to or watch The Sugar Science interviews with most of the world’s leading researchers of T1D.

It is kind of dry and they speak a language of their own, but a basic course in biology, and a basic understanding of immune systems or microbiology is helpful to catch on to what they’re saying.

You can watch any free videos on YouTube or you can enroll in a local course.

This one from Rice U is free immunology course (accessed through my very old community college account that never expires) —

OpenStax has free textbooks on Biology, Anatomy and Microbiology. Cant say they are “fun” but if you really want to know….

I got an BSc, MSc and PhD myself so I usually don't watch the stuff from beginning to end as I've been exposed to much of it... but let's see.

The Princeton Algorithms courses (Coursera) seem good and is quite popular but honestly as long as I don't interview I rarely ever need those.

From HSE (Coursera) I watched parts of Stochastic processes and bayesian methods. I found those interesting because the approach is somehow different and what is presented is rather rare.

I did most of the AI course on Udacity with Norvig and Thrun. I really liked that one. At university we also followed the AIAMA textbook so also much repetition but I found the presentstion is good.

Probabilistic graphical models (Daphne Koller, Stanford, Coursera) : a classic but honestly I never brought up enough motivation to keep at it for longer.

The courses: Watched all the videos from all parts. Think they were OK. Did exercises in the beginning but didn't feel to learn much from them. Too much just transcribing equations and as I work in ML anyway I rather just do my work. many love it, I never liked them. Too much time wasted with showing how to set up stuff, work with jupyter Notebooks etc. Some hidden gems but have to endure lots of noise to find them.

Probability - The Science of Uncertainty and Data (MIT, edx) seemed great but too much repetition to really do it all.

Udacity Operating Systems/Advanced Operating Systems. Liked them, as I started teaching an OS course at a local institution I used them as refresher.

Udacity intro to parallel computing was great to get started with CUDA.

Udacity. Interactive 3D graphics was also well made but I think it's over 5 years now that I did it, might not be well maintained.

Non CS I like:

Hi, this is a late response, but I recently got started in immunology as well. Here are a few resources I really liked:

  1. The Fundamentals of Immunology Cousera specialization (available for free). Fantastic. It's straightforward, I think, and the professor is really funny. I was able to complete it without too much difficulty (although there is some basic biology knowledge required). I completed AP biology and part of a college introductory biology class before I started this online course.
  2. I watched Crash Course and then this video series. Crash Course was super understandable to me, the lecture series was not. The lectures were much more comprehensive, so it was well worth listening to in my opinion.
  3. I browsed/briefly watched sections of Libretext (1), Stories of Infection, and random videos I found online. The Libretext was helpful for reinforcing my general understanding of the immune system. Stories of Infection was interesting, but I felt like it didn't teach me anything new.
  4. I am currently working through the Pillars of Immunology, a list of articles about important discoveries/concepts to the field. This is also outside of my current understanding, haha, but I think I'm starting to accept that there will always be new things to learn and feel excited about.

That's everything I've used so far. I think the main thing I'm missing is a really comprehensive immunology textbook, but I have neither the money or the ability to leave my house and go borrow one. I'm hoping to get it from my college library when we get back to campus (fingers crossed). Still, I hope this helps!

Here are a few basic ones to lay down fundamentals . Plenty out there Have fun!
