Recently, a Japanese acquaintance expressed surprise when I told her you could basically get a university education online for free. Of course, without paying you’d miss out on getting the piece of paper certifying your accomplishments, and you’d definitely miss out on networking opportunities and the irreplaceable aspect of face-to-face communication. Plus, you would unlikely get a great deal of personal feedback on any research papers you write. But the fact that technology has expanded access to knowledge is nothing short of amazing, and I thought I’d create this post to share some top resources I know of, so you learners out there know your options.
