A Short Course on General Relativity  A graduate level course which includes weak field theory, gravitational waves, radiation damping, cosmology, the Friedmann and Lemaitre dusts, singularities, black holes, the Schwarzschild metric and Kruskal's extension of it. This is a single postscript document.
Black Holes  A very thorough introduction, studies the Schwarzschild, ReissnerNordstrom, and Kerr solutions using a variety of coordinate systems. Additional topics include gravitational collapse, horizons, singularities, CarterPenrose diagrams (aka conformal compactification), Hawking radiation and black hole thermodynamics
Bondi KCalculus  A simple derivation of Einstein's theory of relativity which is widely taught to undergraduate physics students. The mathematics required though make this easy for anyone to understand.
Cosmology  This page contains information about the course Cosmology and exobiology read in the fall semester 1999 at the Physics Institute of NTNU, Trondheim
Falling into a Black Hole (Andrew Hamilton)  Fall into a black hole on a real free fall orbit. All distortions of images are real, both general relativistic from the gravitational bending of light, and special relativistic from the near light speed orbit.
General Relativity  This homepage contains lecture notes on the course of general relativity FX2/H97 read in the fall semester 1997 at the Physics Institute of NTNU, Trondheim
General Relativity Tutorial (John Baez)  This is bunch of interconnected web pages that serve as an informal introduction to general relativity. The goal is to demystify general relativity and get across the key ideas without big complicated calculations.
General Relativity and Cosmology  An online notes from the University of British Columbia featuring simple explanations of cosmological phenomena.
General Relativity for Undergraduates  An online draft copy of an undergraduate text book on general relativity and cosmology.
General Relativity: A Very Weird World  Site graphically explains the fundamentals of general relativity. Covers most aspects of the subject very well.
Geometry Around Black Holes (Michael Cramer Andersen)  A WWW Exhibition in Relativistic Computer Dynamics and Visualization
Introduction to Differential Geometry and General Relativity  A course from the Department of Mathematics at Hofstra University on differential geometry and general relativity.
Lecture Notes on General Relativity  Download lecture notes on special relativity, general relativity, differential geometry, and spherically symmetric spacetimes in postscript format.
Lecture Notes on General Relativity (Sean Carroll)  Lecture notes for a onesemester course in General Relativity.
Modern Physics Course  A second year course introducing special relativity and quantum mechanics. All of the lecture notes are posted online.
Modern Relativity  Over 50 sections explaining derivations in general relativity. Has a special relativity subsection, message board, and links.
Reflections on Relativity  Comprehensive presentation of the special and general theories of relativity.
Relativity Channel  Presents Einstein's Theory of Relativity without math.
Relativity Tutorial  An illustrated guide to relativity
Relativity and Cosmology  undergraduate course notes include both special relativity (e.g., spacetime, Lorentz invariance, various "paradoxes") and general relativity (e.g., equivalence principle, black holes, gravitational waves, experimental tests of gtr). Apparently a survey course for nonmajors, with little math but some very nice graphics.
