I think our current education model needs to be fixed. I usually felt like I wasn't learning a subject but learning how to memorize for test.

That's EXACTLY what happened drapheus, and what is still happening; but it will change soon, I believe.

And great information Sinter Klass! Thank you for bringing this here, I can't wait to start looking these over!

Thank you for posting this! I'm passing it along to my kids...

I'm hoping and praying that this is a new beginning for higher education, as brick-and-mortars are replaced with cyber classrooms, expanding availability for anyone and everyone who wants to learn and improve themselves. Whether for careers or just personal growth and development.

This is very exciting to me. I may just check it out for myself as well!

I've seen many post along these lines and the fact still remains that employers have made a bachelors degree the "base requirement" for most job openings.

So yes, you can "learn" from all of these sources, but the reality is that they "don't count" unless its pared with some kind of undergraduate degree.

Of all these free resources you have noted, only "University of the People" offers actual accredited courses, HOWEVER, admissions is COMPETITIVE.

As for Saylor, here is the list of the ONLY colleges that will accept its credits:

www.saylor.org...

Some of those listed are Junior Colleges, BUT even if someone earnd the two-year degree after transferring the Saylor units, the 4-year school does not have to accept any of the Saylor units and can ask you to take them all over again.

In fact very few Saylor courses are actually free for credit, you really end up paying the JC directly and Saylor only "administers" the course:
