Free Online Education

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go.”
- Dr. Seuss
The blog, Marc and Angel Hack Life, Practical Tips for Production Living, list over 100 Internet sites that offer free classes, lectures, books, or research materials online.

 I've used a few of them

  • MIT OpenCourseWare – MIT OpenCourseWare is a free web-based publication of MIT course materials that reflects almost all the undergraduate and graduate subjects taught at MIT.

  • <amazing amount of subjects and I still learned something after 20 years in the computer science.>

  • Khan Academy – Over 1200 videos lessons covering everything from basic arithmetic and algebra to differential equations, physics, chemistry, and biology.

  • <aimed at High School and Undergraduate level>

  • The USGenWeb Project – Free genealogy and family history resources online.

  • One Minute Languages – Learn a new language via podcasts that are updated regularly.

  • TED – Motivational and educational lectures from noteworthy professionals around the world.

  • Project Gutenberg – More than 20,000 free books from the first producer of free e-books.

  • Weather Channel – You can learn about weather all over the world, but the Weather Channel also offers dynamic content based upon seasons and special conditions and a special multimedia and education section.

  • Bottom Line

    Many of our greatest men were self taught, Lincoln, Thoreau, DaVinci, Einstein, Newton. Many are considered genius but they became that way because they read and studied on their own time and of their own passion.
