Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Lecturer Victor Pereira at Harvard Graduate School of Education.


"Your Body's Balancing Act: Homeostasis" is a comprehensive course that delves into the intricate mechanisms governing the body's equilibrium. Spanning across multiple lectures, this course provides a thorough understanding of homeostasis— the vital process that maintains stability in the body's internal environment. Covering an array of topics, from fundamental biological regulations to the complexities of various bodily systems, students will explore the mechanisms that keep temperature, pH levels, blood sugar, and more in check. The course also examines how hormones, the nervous system, and various organs collaborate to sustain homeostasis, alongside discussions about the implications of homeostatic imbalances leading to diseases. Through a progression from basic concepts to advanced applications, learners gain insights into the regulatory systems of the human body and their interconnectedness. Each 20-minute lecture is crafted to provide an in-depth understanding of how the body adapts and maintains balance, offering a holistic view of homeostasis and its significance in sustaining life and health.

At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the educator indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.
