1. Natural Beekeeping: Study Natural Beekeeping Online Course and Learn the Practical Applications of Beekeeping

Our Natural Beekeeping Online Course begins by answering the question, ‘Why keep bees?’. From this, you’ll learn of the global and general reasons why bees are a necessity for our world and our lives – not just our habitats and food sources, but also our economy.

The course aims to introduce you to the practical applications of beekeeping, focusing on how to do this in the most environmentally responsible and bee-friendly way possible. From the course, you’ll gain an understanding of how to cultivate bee colonies that can thrive in and support the natural world.

Why do bees make honey? How do they do it? The Natural Beekeeping Diploma Course answers these questions as you consider bees as gifted engineers and how they are capable of creating an incredibly efficient structure in which to hold their food, young, and themselves.

The Natural Beekeeping Course walks you through the different ways you can do this, with an emphasis on catching a swarm. We’ll then guide you through the duties involved in caring for your colony and hive. This includes ensuring adequate food supplies, protecting against pests, and advice for maintaining and repairing your hive.

2. Entomology: Study about the different families of insects, their subspecies, and their behaviour

Entomology is the study of insects and their interactions with their surroundings and other lifeforms. Through studying the Entomology Course, you’ll learn of the importance of insects, how they are classified, the external and internal structures of their bodies, how they detect stimuli, how they reproduce and grow, their defence mechanisms, how entomologists collect insects, and how we interact with them.

What will you learn with our Entomology Online Course?

  • Beginning with an introduction to the subject, the course explains what entomology is and explores its history, and the importance of insects and insect biodiversity. You’ll learn how systematic classification works, common types of insects and how to identify insects.
  • We’ll explore the structures of insects - externally and internally. We’ll cover the various parts of an insect, some functions of insect body parts and the general framework of an insect. We then discuss the biochemical breakdown, absorption, and excretion process of insects, the internal structures and their functions, and the female and male internal organs of many insects. We’ll also look into the ways in which insects detect stimuli and the behaviours that are elicited or changed by environmental stimuli.
  • The Entomology Course covers the various aspects of the reproductive system of insects, including the reproductive system itself, mating behaviour, ovulation, sperm, eggs and fertilisation and oviposition. We also look into embryological development, the patterns of insect growth phases from egg to adult, the different types of metamorphosis and its significance, and the effects genetics and environment have on their development.
  • We’ll take a look at the many defence mechanisms that insects use, including hiding, mechanical defences, chemical defences, mimicry, collective defences and secondary lines of defence.
  • We’ll examine how entomologists collect insects, some common procedures of preservation and the precautions to be considered during insect collection.
  • Finally, we’ll look at those insects that humans describe as beneficial or harmful, the ecological principles governing the interactions between insects, the impact of pest insects and a range of methods available for the control of insect pests.

Benefits of Taking This Course

  • The Entomology Course will satisfy your fascination with insects and how they interact with their surroundings. If you intend on pursuing a career in entomology, this course will give you a base knowledge of the subject from which to begin. As there are many types of entomology, it will also encourage you to determine which branch best suits you.
  • The course will also be beneficial to you if you have an interest in the natural sciences and wish to expand your knowledge and understanding of a part of the living world that, despite being relatively out of sight, is actually incredibly large.
3. Botany: Learn everything you need to know about plants by becoming a proper Botanist

Take the Botany Course and you'll learn about the world's plant life — inside out, past and present, fungi to flower — from the highest mountains to the lowest-lying deserts. You’ll understand all plants a little better.

You’ll become familiar with gross and microscopic plant anatomy, plant physiology, the family or genera plants belong to, how they are taxonomically organised, and their metabolic processes. You’ll even follow their evolution from water to land and discover how they’ve adapted to their differing environments.

What will you learn with our Botany Online Course?

  • The Botany Course begins by looking at plant evolution and adaptation, a process that will introduce you to some of the most exciting plant species, including carnivorous plants (which might live closer to you than you think!).
  • From there, we’ll dive right into the plants, as we consider them on a microscopic level. You’ll discover the different cells that make up various plant tissue types, becoming familiar with the process of plant growth.
  • You'll learn about the gross anatomy of plants, looking at the plant parts that we can see with the naked eye. You discover facts about the foods you eat and think more deeply about how humans use each different plant part. We’ll also explore plant physiology, as we take a closer look at processes such as photosynthesis and respiration and how water and sugars move through plants.
  • The Botany Course shows you the systems of classifications used to organise the gigantic plant kingdom. We explore Kingdom Protista and lichen and learn about fungi — which includes a look at what mushrooms are and edible, poisonous and psychotropic fungi. You’ll also discover some of our earliest land plants as you study bryophytes and ferns.
  • You’ll be introduced to gymnosperms — helping you learn more about conifers. You’ll also explore how they reproduce and how humans have come to rely on them for more than just wood.
  • The course concludes in an explosion of colour, scent and ingenious pollination adaptations, as you explore angiosperms — flowering plants.

To successfully complete this course, a student must:

  • Have access to the internet and the necessary technical skills to navigate the online learning resources
  • Have access to any mobile device with internet connectivity (laptop, desktop, tablet)
  • Be a self-directed learner
