Attend Free Online College Courses

Did you ever wish that you could go back to college and take just a few more classes in some subject? Do you wish that you could send your husband or kids to Tufts or MIT or Berkeley to do some studying?

Of course, we "all know" that just dropping in for a few classes at MIT, Berkeley, Stanford or UC Irvine is "out of the question" unless your neighbor teaches there or you get a kick out of sneaking into classes on college campuses (a fun, but time consuming way to obtain knowledge.)

Not so, little bird!

There are TONS of FREE online college courses! No, I'm not kidding.... there are a jillion course lectures available online,...that you can just watch for free.

Currently, my son and I are watching a wonderful Course on the Constitution by Michael Badnarik (the 2004 Libertarian Candidate for President) and also a Physics class from Professor Lewin, one of the most beloved Professors at MIT. These can be hard subjects... but we are thoroughly enjoying gaining our new knowledge. It leads to fabulous conversations and increased understanding of life.

Will you get "college credit" for taking free online college courses? No. You have to "pay" for college credit (don't get me started).... but, you WILL get the knowledge from these courses.... knowledge is FREE.

Here is a link to a site of Universities withe the best free online courses: click here.

The best thing about these classes? If the prof is boring or not worth your time .... you can make him or her disappear with a click of the mouse. Not to mention, you get to go to class in your pajamas.
