In a recent post I wrote about rapid or informal learning that takes place anywhere, anytime and anyplace. Now I would like to direct you to some worthy sites.
One of the best in terms of an amazing variety of subjects is MITOPENCOURSEWARE. This site offers free access to course material. You are on your own — no instructor, but everything is free. No registration is required.
Another comprehensive site is Connexions—
a place to view and share educational material made of small knowledge chunks called modules that can be organized as courses, books, reports, etc. Anyone may view or contribute:
- authors create and collaborate
- instructors rapidly build and share custom collections
- Learners find and explore content
It offers a variety of formats, from full courses to standalone references. It also offers resources to develop your own course. The site does require registration but you don’t get annoying e-mails, just periodic updates.
A somewhat more eclectic site is WizIQ. Subjects are comprehensive. Content is mostly presentations but there are free online courses that are offered by instructors. Registration required and the site has tools to develop courses.
Another good site with many subjects and varying delivery formats is Merlot.
Registration is free but is not required to access content.
Now you have the resources to easily update or learn your skills.
