Coursera: Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations

In this introductory course on Ordinary Differential Equations, we first provide basic terminologies on the theory of differential equations and then proceed to methods of solving various types of ordinary differential equations. We handle first order differential equations and then second order linear differential equations. We also discuss some related concrete mathematical modeling problems, which can be handled by the methods introduced in this course.

The lecture is self contained. However, if necessary, you may consult any introductory level text
on ordinary differential equations. For example, "Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems
by W. E. Boyce and R. C. DiPrima from John Wiley & Sons" is a good source for further study on the subject.

The course is mainly delivered through video lectures. At the end of each module, there will be a quiz consisting of several problems related to the lecture of the week.
