Ivy League for Everyone

It’s no surprise that I am a big fan of higher education, continuing education, any education. With this in mind, I was every synonym you can think of for happy this morning when I learned Yale University is offering 7 full undergraduate courses online for FREE. And it’s not just one lecture here and there but complete courses with video lectures, syllabi and transcripts. The university hopes to have 30 more complete courses online within the next 3 years. 30 courses! That is almost like a whole new degree! (There really aren’t enough exclamation marks in the world to fully express my somewhat nerdy but wholeheartedly sincere glee.)

Of course Yale isn’t going to start handing out diplomas will-nilly. But, if you are in it for the learning and not the paper, visit Open Yale Courses to learn more. I’ve listed the courses below so you can get a head start.

Happy Learning!
