The Internet is wonderful! Yes, in spite of all the problems, it’s the most amazing communication tool in history, apart from language. It’s allowed all of us to have vast amounts of learning at our fingertips – including free online college classes! Stop aging of your mind by learning new things, acquiring new knowledge and keeping your minds active. Settling down in front of the TV to watch American Idol is a great path to dullness and inevitable decline.
These online education classes cover all areas of human knowledge:
* Computer Science
* Political Science
Online Education Schools
There are a ton of ‘online education schools’ – meaning those who offer classes, both credit and non-credit. But of the two best free sources, I like:
Want to know more about how to deal with the current financial crisis, study ancient Greek literature or be introduced to astrophysics? If so, Academic Earth is a great place to be. Charles Bailyn from Yale university will teach you about Jupiter, Pluto, black holes and Exoplanets (whatever they are?)
YouTube organizes their directory of online education classes quite differently. It has an extensive listing of schools, beginning with Amherst (29 videos) and ending with Yale Courses and Yale University (a total of 452 videos).
Expanding our knowledge and minds is a good thing So if you have a hankering for knowledge from some of the best minds around, take advantage of ‘free’ and sign up for some of these first rate online education classes. If you want to stop aging keep moving, stay alive, seek newness.
