Created by Australian university professor David Christian in partnership with Bill Gates, Big History is a history course that looks at the past from the Big Bang to modernity, seeking out common themes and patterns that can help us better understand people, civilizations and the world we live in.

Big History began with a pilot in seven classrooms and in the next two years expanded to nearly one hundred classrooms. Big History is now available to all high school classrooms for free. (Some teachers have also adapted it to a middle school honors curriculum.)
