Go To College For Free... Try ed2go!
January 22, 2013
Alright, I have something rather neat to share with all of you. Mid-Continent Public Library has a fantastic resource called ed2go (Education to Go). They are FREE 6-week online courses by teachers and professors that cover a variety of courses! For example, I had always been curious about the criminal justice system, and so I was browsing the courses and found a course about criminal law. I’m a big fan of procedural shows like Rizzoli & Isles, Castle, Bones, and Body of Proof, and I wanted to know more about the real-life procedures. Now, thanks to this free course, I know!
Sign-up is easy. All you need is a free pass code, which you get when you sign up with your email address and library card number. Ed2go will email the free pass codes for you to then register for your class. The lessons are released every Wednesday and Friday, with readings, quizzes, and discussion assignments. You can register for as many classes as you wish, but they recommend no more than two at a time.
Courses range in topics from college test prep to health care, and even writing techniques on how to get published. As a matter of fact, I’m going to try a refresher course on chemistry. I had gone the biology route in school, and now I'm curious about the other sciences.
Which ones are you going to try?
