Just a quick post today, but it’s one that could make a big difference to your life.
These days, we don’t finish our education when we leave school or university. We need – and actually often want – to keep going back and learning at many different timers in our lives. Maybe you’ve decided to retrain since your family arrived, perhaps you’re thinking of leaving your little business and going back to your career when your kids start school or perhaps you just feel the need to exercise your brain. Whatever the reason, the internet has opened up some pretty incredible opportunities to learn.
Universities around the world are now offering courses for free at Coursera or you can check out Stanford’s online courses. Yes, they are at higher education level and yes, there is a tutor and assignments to complete. These courses are more than just a set of videos you watch alone. Pretty amazing, I think.
Harvard also offers videos of some of its courses here and so does Masachusetts Institute of Technology (there’s no tutor or assignments for these).
And if you’re wondering where the British universities are, they’ll joining in soon – see this article for more.
