Free Classes at Top Universities

If you had a chance to go to one of the top 10 schools in the US, you'd probably say yes -- especially if it were free. Good news! Coursera.org is a site that brings a catalog of fascinating college courses online to anyone who wants to sign up! We heard about it from a TED conference (TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design -- basically they promote spreading cool ideas).

So what will you find at Coursera.org? Classes from Princeton, Stanford, the University of Virginia, and lots more. Want to take a World Music course from the University of Pennsylvania? Done! Interested in learning about Fantasy and Science Fiction through the lens of psychology? Check out this University of Michigan class.

I know it's summer, but seriously… this is awesome! Bookmark it and come back when you're ready for some sweet, sweet learnin'.
