Free Online Education From Top Schools

October 11, 2012

Not too long ago I got a message from a boss in my distant past telling me about some classes offered by Stanford. Their Venture Lab offers five courses starting next week. Best of all, the classes are completely free. I’ve “enrolled” in the Technology Entrepreneurship class and am looking forward to learning new things.

Another site you may want to explore is coursera.org as they have links to classes at a number of top institutions. The only bad thing is they don’t have any classes from the University of Kansas (my alma mater). I’ll keep looking and maybe there will be some in future terms.

If any of you decide to sign up for a course, post a comment and let us know what you will be learning!

    Stanford is offering free online courses online? That’s crazy. Definitely looking into the “Crash course on Creativity” program!
