Default Increase Your Geekitude

Fellow geeks, rejoice! Free MIT Courses

No professor support or college credit, but you can take courses on Nuclear Engineering, Aeronautics, and Women's Studies, among others.

These MIT courses are great as a backup for the times you take a course from a school at which the instructor is not, ahem, that good. Or, if you take a correspondence course, say Calc III from University of North Dakota, and would like to see some recorded lectures on the topic along with the course.

The MIT site looks like a great resource... I've scanned their course catalog in the past, but never really taken the opportunity to try and work through any of the material.

Another great free online learning tool is Open Stanford on iTunes U.

The "Physical Intelligence" course in the Athletics section looks worth a read...

Thanks Scott! Post here or in your original thread how your shoulder's doing...

Here are a few more free college resources that I came across, courtesy of Learn Out Loud, which has a great offering of audio downloads (some free, some you have to pay for). I believe these can all be found through iTunes U as well, but Learn Out Loud pulled them all together.

Arizona State University
New Jersey Institute of Technology
Texas A&M University
Concordia Seminary
Seattle Pacific University
Pennsylvania State University
Michigan Tech University
Otis College of Art and Design
