They say that learning never really stops. There are people who seek out new knowledge on a continuous basis, while there are those who are content to rest on what they know. I think that you’re not a real geek at heart if you are part of the latter group. After all, you are as only good as the last bit of knowledge that you’ve picked up, aren’t you?
For those who are on a continuous quest for knowledge, here is a Halloween treat for you – 100 free courses for geeks! I came across a comprehensive list of free online courses for anyone and everyone who would like to take them. Onlinecourses.org outlines 100 courses which you can take online – all of them for FREE!
The list is divided into several categories, namely Computer Science and Engineering, Computer Security, Programming, The Web, Information Technology, Communication Technology, Technology in Education, Tech Math, and Technology and Society. I tried accessing some of the courses under each category, and they seem pretty comprehensive! The ones I accessed were pretty text heavy, meaning that you have to be patient enough to read through LOTS of material. A good thing that I noticed is that the treatment of the topics is practical, meaning that you can easily relate the theories to real life situations that you may encounter.
I had never heard of these free online courses before, but I am glad that I now know about them. I think I am going to be busy reading up on the materials in the next few months! You should check the site out, too.
