For my final paper last semester for my college writing course, I chose the topic of online learing. I think that this growing trend is going to be more and more a part of our world’s educational future. A friend sent this link to me and I thought that because I am what I call a Lifelong Learning Junkie (LLJ), there was a fairly good chance there were more out there that might be reading my blog.
Marc and Angel’s Hack Life: Practical Tips for Productive Living blog recently put out 12 Dozen Places to Self-Educate Yourself Online.
In the list are included the online resources that many of us have already heard of and are using such as Khan Academy and Yale’s Open Courses, there are quite a few more that I haven’t even heard about.
If you or anyone you love is currently in school, or learning as much a you can is a passion for you, the list can be found at the above link.

Great post! I am all for re-education through online learning. In fact I am going back to study through online open Universities here as the Uni I work for doesn’t have the course I want to do 🙂

I just discovered Khan myself few days ago-talking about synchronicity
