Have you ever wished you could just LEARN about something? Wanted to take a college level course on philosophy without dumping $30,000 for a full course load? Are you a student that would love a preview of the course you are taking next fall to help you get an edge? Or are you like me and just enjoy immersing your self in knowledge? Well if you fall into any of those categories I have a series of absolutely fantastic options for you today.
First up is the always awesome MIT Opencourseware site. They have lecture notes, videos, images, everything you could think to dig into for dozens of subjects from Anthropology to Physics. Delving in to one of these is just like taking a self run college course. Very good depth to the material and an excellent array of resources.
My next favorite option for free university level knowledge absorption is UC Berkley which posts podcasts and videos of almost all of their classes online. This is a little more passive than the Opencourseware option in that you can just fire up the lecture and let it roll. This is my preferred site for getting a good idea of a topic without really digging in and putting in the kind of spadework that Opencourseware requires to get the most out of it. I can fire up a lecture on my iphone and listen to it in my car on the way to work and fulfill my goal of learning a new thing every day. It’s hard to beat this kind of access to knowledge.
A great resource for finding free course material is Education Portal which lists and links free course material by category. Now my loyal citizens I charge you all to go out and LEARN SOMETHING. There is no excuse for ignorance.
