Right now I am in the middle of a fantastic songwriting course taught by Pat Pattison of The Berklee College of Music and today begins a Quantum Physics course given by the University of Maryland.
These courses are available through Coursera. According to their website:
We [Coursera] are a social entrepreneurship company that partners with the top universities in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free. We envision a future where the top universities are educating not only thousands of students, but millions. Our technology enables the best professors to teach tens or hundreds of thousands of students.Check Coursera out! What an amazing opportunity to learn.
Through this, we hope to give everyone access to the world-class education that has so far been available only to a select few. We want to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in."
