MOOCs Did You Know College is Free Online?

Massive Open Online Courses

I'm now studying math, engineering, psychology and sociology.

Nearly every 'degree' has an exam you can pass for certification. You get the same education college graduates get. (in many cases, possibly better)

When I was a kid...
I had to keep track of things I wanted to look up, usually for 2 weeks at a time. Every 2 weeks I'd get to go to the library, and HOPE I found books which answered my questions. Now almost everything I could think of is online, and the cost of learning it has dropped to an internet connection and time. I'm absolutely amazed at how little awareness the current generation has on this, let alone how massive an impact it could have on their life and those around them.


Never Went to College?
Not Passionate about Your Chosen Degree?
Haven't Found What You're Passionate About Yet?
What unanswered questions do YOU have?
What field of information holds the answer for you? Horticulture? Romantic literature? Geology, theology, biology, or one of the many many other ologies available? You don't even have to 'go to class' for this, and can simply watch the videos in each course. You have everything to gain in life by watching the videos for 101 classes, especially if you do it for every course out there. The chances are good, at some point you're going to find something which completely fascinates you. Something which tickles your brain and you think about all the time anyway. This is what you should be pursuing in life, the ability to work at something you love and do well.

I've spent my entire life not realizing how my own brain naturally spends it's time. The classes I've taken and are taking have greatly broadened my awareness of myself. As far back as I can remember, when I see something happen in life my brain automatically jumps to how it was made or how the process works. Many times I jump straight to how it could be done better. This is the thinking of a natural engineer, but due to my ignorance of myself I completely missed it for decades.


What are YOU passionate about in life?

This is a thread about education, so I'm not going to assume anything about anyone.


Here's a HUGE list of MOOC resources...

Who might not wish so many to learn about such things ?
As I stare at the 'warning', that is something I ponder...

Thanks Gry Hoping I can fit that into my schedule this year.


No worries Billy, I've been on the net since '92 and it was a mess. You had to download image files before you could view them. This meant the most info you could get about a file came from the context, and mostly just the file name. You cannot un-see some things, ya know? lol Search engines came into existence and started providing a quick way to get simple answers. I quickly developed the habit of going there first.

Talk about an education... lol

MIT Open University is a great resource.

I don't like sitting alone trying to figure stuff out. It would be great to have groups for studying selected subjects.
