on lifelong learning

 

Vintage Learning
Now what is more foolish than refusing to learn, simply because one has not been learning for a long time? You should keep learning as long as you are ignorant – even to the end of your life. As long as you live, keep learning how to live.Lucius Annaeus Seneca

One of the most amazing things about this fabulous world wide web is the immense access to free educational resources available to everyone.

I have been taking courses on just about every topic that interests me, including the history of the world at Princeton University on  Coursera,  an education platform that partners with top universities and organizations worldwide, to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free.

I’d love to know if you have any favorite courses or MOOC sites. Feel free to share.

  1. I have been taking some writing and grammar courses offered by Queenstown University. So far it has been great. I think many people are not aware of the free education offered on the Internet. But a quick search will allow you to do pretty much anything that may interest you. It’s great!
