It’s been over 20 years since I’ve been to college, but I’m going back this Fall. I’m starting out by taking a History class from Princeton. I’ve lived long enough to be utterly fascinated by history, and I can’t wait to dive into the course!
And then there’s the Humanities course from Duke University and the Psychology course from the University of London…..
I’m like a kid in a candy store! There are so many wonderful choices, and so much that I want to learn. I just can’t wait!
I know, I know…..with the cost of college nowadays you probably think I’m flush with money to be enrolling in courses at 3 remarkable Universities, but the great news is this….
It’s ALL FREE!
The courses are FREE!!!
They are all taught by renowned Professors from top notch Universities and yet none of these wonderful courses costs a penny!
But it gets better than that.
The classes –198 so far— from Princeton to the University of London — are also all ONLINE! So I don’t even have to leave my comfortable home to take them!
The educational website is called “Coursera.” Check it out at www.coursera.org.
Why would they give this wonderful gift of knowledge for free?
Well, the founders’ mission is to “empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families and the communities they live in.” See https://www.coursera.org/about
