Query:   Dear fellow linguists,

I was wondering if anyone knows of good online courses (in the U.S.)
that cover the material of a typical Introduction to Linguistics class. Intro
to Linguistics is a pre-requisite for students in our MA in TESL
program, and occasionally students ask if they can fulfill the
requirement via an online course. I would like to find a regularly offered
online course that I could suggest to them. The course would need to
cover standard Intro to Linguistics content, including introduction to
phonetics/phonology, morphology/syntax, and semantics/pragmatics,
and preferably also include something on language acquisition. I would
appreciate any information and links, and will post a summary based on
responses that I receive.

Thank you in advance!
