So, I just discovered that MIT offers free courses online in virtually every deptartment. To be clear, you cannot earn credits or a degree or anything
of that nature, this is simply for people that want to learn. I had no idea this existed until about an hour ago and have been drooling over all the
topics I can learn trying to figure out where to start.
I know you don't get a piece of paper, but I would be willing to bet that more than a few of the courses they offer could help your job status if it
needs help. From my experience in the last few years, in certain fields, employers are caring less about a piece of paper and more about your actual
knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge. Having said all that, even if it doesn't affect your job situation at all, is it ever a bad thing to
acquire more knowledge?
Also, mods, after coming across this site I did a quick search and found a thread mentioning it about a year ago. I just figured that maybe there were
a lot of new people on here like myself that had no idea it existed. If you dont' feel this thread is needed, then by all means, you can remove it and
I promise I won't cry.
Anyway, here's the link. Happy learning!
