Free online education

Anonymous (@) 9 years, 8 months ago

I thought HEthens may enjoy this resource. It’s a website that contains links to 100+ free online educational sites from all different categories. It has links to different colleges opencourseware, online academies like Khanacademy. One of the things I especially liked, because Khan doesn’t have it, is the language section. Several resources for learning foreign languages as well as american sign language. Other sections include English, Math, History, Business, Computer Science, even Law.
It’s an amazing resource, ENJOY.

@sumtinprophetic, no problem man, always happy to help others learn. It’s a lifelong endeavor. One of the most important things we can do is instill in young people (and old too if they don’t already have it) a love of learning. More important than any one specific thing, is the love of learning, everyone should have it, you can never know too much.

I will also bump this simply for the fact that the words “free” and “education” are meant to be together, and the fact that people look at this incredulous like I did is sad.

I’ve found this helpful as well: http://www.openculture.com/freeonlinecourses
You can also find a lot of free eBooks there. (:

I would actually suggest watching Human Behavioral Biology – Robert Sapolsky, Stanford on iTunes. This guy is a great lecturer, made me want to go to Stanford for a bit but I guess I technically was for that course haha.

I have a sincere thank you to give, cause I found this thread like a month ago and found livemocha.com through your link! I’ve been using it every day since. If anyone is interested in learning a language go to livemocha.com; by far the BEST resource I’ve found.

There were a series of Harvard or Stanford lectures on philosophy that someone posted a link to on here a while ago and I cannot find it for the life of me. I watched the first one and loved it and now I cannot find the rest :( They were entire 45 minute lectures that had been recorded!

Anyone?

Alex (345) (@staylucky) 8 years, 10 months ago ago

Found it! It was Yale *derp*

For anyone interested :)
