This github repository provides materials for a turn-key, general-education level, interdisciplinary eclipse course. It is designed to help prepare for the Apr 8, 2024 total eclipse.

Available in the repository are more than 400 slides, 7 multiple choice quizzes, and 14 video-recorded lectures of 50' each. The slides can be edited for local use, and the material can be used any way an instructor desires.  The goal is to further education about the eclipse, and eclipses in general.

A 6 page manuscript describing the course is provided.
