Itunes U, Wikiversity, and You

Itunes U, Wikiversity, and You

Have you ever dreamed of attending Stanford?  Do you want to start writing your first horror novel but don’t now how to start?

itunes University, better known as iTunes U, is a place to let your learning start.  Stanford, Yale, MIT, and other universities publish course content for free to iTunes users.  Open University is another outlet where you can learn how to do almost anything, for free.  I’m in the middle of taking their course, Start Writing Fiction.

Whether you are thinking of changing careers or just want to learn how to use Microsoft Excel, iTunes U or Wikiversity has a course to help you learn more about the things that interest you.  These free online courses are great ways to boost your resume, learn a new skill, or simply broaden your horizons.

If you have ever wanted to try your hand at teaching, Wikiversity and iTunes U both provide educational outlets where you can teach a skill you have always wanted to share.  Each of these outlets provide a free platform for you to share your knowledge with the world.

And if you’re a parent and your mind is already churning about how to handle summer vacation, perhaps you and your child could take a class together.  There are exercise videos, videos to help you “brush up on biology,” and other educational clips that can be informative and fun.
