Free Online Course Material

I recently discovered that my alma mater, Utah State University, offers free online course material.

It is quite an impressive list, such as Cultural Anthropology, Biochemical Engineering, and Introduction to Economics. They include links for Syllabus, Lecture Notes, and Audio Lectures, as well as additional resources.

MIT also offers free online course material. Their course list is even more impressive.

Yale University also offers free online course material.

Harvard, Berkeley, Columbia, Oxford, The University of South Carolina School of Medicine, and so forth. The list just goes on and on.

I can't imagine homeschooling without the Internet. Our children, as well as ourselves, can get a world class education for free at home.

It is kind of ironic though. Because of frivolous internet use, some have called this the "Dumbest Generation."

With the options now available, ignorance is now a lifestyle choice.
