You may have read about the free iPod classes in the Power of an iPod Education post. Well, some universities also offer free, open courses on-line. Harvard is one of them. Open courses open to anyone with access to the Internet. That’s right–free instruction from Ivy-league professors. You don’t earn credits with Harvard Extension School’s Open Learning Initiative , but you still get the knowledge. Harvard offers open classes such as Algebra, computer science, and Shakespeare.
The university also has more credit and non-credit classes for a low tuition. How about 16 weeks of being Harvard trained in the Economics of Business? For $1,025 for non-credit or undergrad credit? In our current economic and business environment, this could be quite the illumination class.
Princeton, and some others, also offer similar courses; which I’ll cover in another post. But do also check out the iPod offerings.
