Sites for Learning

It’s fun to learn. As I age, learning new things seems to have come into it’s own. I have more time and technology has exploded.

  1. – The University of Reddit. It has everything. Music. Art. Calculus.  It’s rated by joe-shmo so you can see what others feel is the best.
  2. edX – High quality learning from some of the world’s best universities, courses are free and self-paced.
  3. Alison – Over 800 free online courses from well known names such as Microsoft.
  4. Big Think – Collection of ‘high-minded’ ideas in the form of brief videos.
  5. Open Culture – One of the pre-eminent directories of free video resources from around the web, lessons in everything!
  6. Cosmo Learning – Free website curating the best educational videos from around the web plus a small range of blended courses.
  7. Coursera – 2,000 courses from top universities like Yale and Stanford all free for you.
  8. khan Academy – seems more geared for the K-12 student but I’ll list it.
