Definitely good introductory course for someone interested in black holes! The instructors are funny and really taught me things with certain detail. Like it!

From the lesson
Riding the Gravity Wave
How do you study a black hole that has no visible companion? In this module the student will be introduced to gravitational radiation. With the 2016 LIGO discovery of gravitational waves, a whole new branch of astronomy has been opened.
