A great promise of the online world is access to knowledge.
As top universities like MIT and Harvard offer popular courses online at no
cost, and websites like Code Academy, Khan Academy, and Coursera have built
solid reputations, education online is more dynamic than ever before. Some
platforms offer the opportunity to earn certificates of completion, and there
are even ways to translate your learning to college credit. What does it mean
to learn in the virtual world? Where do you begin? Is this just for fun or are
there more tangible benefits? This workshop will provide participants with an overview
of popular, free, online learning platforms and help the curious and the
motivated to start exploring the endless opportunities for online learning.
