Do you want to enroll at Harvard? Yale? Stanford? Do you want to take courses on communication, business, writing, psychology? Do you want to have a world class education at the convenience of your own home? Free and no charge at all? It’s like a dream but the great news is it’s not. It is real and you can build on yourself as soon as you can.
Well, I’ve been inactive in my blog for the past month. Aside from completing my requirements on my master’s application, one of the things which is occupying me is taking advantage of these free resources.
This is truly amazing. I get to learn from great professors from great universities. The courses that hubby and I choose have lecture videos and aid materials.The only downside is, if you want these courses be credited to you, it will have to cost you an arm and a leg. You have to pay for a thousand dollars. But hubby and I don’t mind not gaining a degree from these free courses, for as long as we can increase our knowledge for free.
Currently hubby is enrolled in programming classes, while I am enrolled in MIT’s Introduction to Psychology and University of California’s Psychology of Couples and Families. Isn’t it great? I wonder why we discovered it only now.
In the Philippines, the only universities I know so far that are currently offering online courses are PUP, UP, CLSU, PLM. I hope their course offerings will get extensive in time so stay at home moms like me will get to earn additional degree or certification while being with their kids.
But as of now, the world’s top universities are already giving away free world-class lectures at the tip of my finger tips, might as well take advantage of it. If you’re interested you may want to start your course search here: Coursera, OpenCulture, Open Yale Courses, MIT Open Course Ware.
So what are you waiting for? Google “open courses” and select from the multitude of free courses available online. Enroll now!
