What are earthquakes? Gain a new perspective on these powerful phenomena with this iTunes U course co-produced by the California Academy of Sciences and Northern California public media provider KQED. Designed for middle- and high-school science educators to broaden their own knowledge and use with students, the course weaves together activities, videos, and classroom-ready materials into a primer on how plate tectonics shape Earth's surface and directly impact people's lives.

I love it so much!
I am in Earth Science this year, and I had been having several problems with each unit we went over. The teacher was really confusing me. One of our little topics was "Earthquakes and Tectonic Plates". So I used this to help me. We haven't taken the big state- wide tests yet, but I have a feeling when it comes to this section of it that I'll be okay.
This course includes great graphics, readings, computer simulations! I was very impressed.
