I had an incredible list of free online learning resources shared with me earlier today and had to pass it along.

Learn thee well!

Schools and Universities:

Other General Sites:

Specialized Sites:

The more you know, the more you realize you don’t know.

I will continue and add/edit/refine this list as my time permits. Please send me a message if you spot a broken link, have general grievance with some sort of error, or have a good link we can add.

Thank you Everyone!

Edit: It looks like this thread has been archived, so if anyone has any more suggestions please PM me. I plan to work on this list and add annotations for each link and maybe do some better organizing. When that is done I will post it again to try to get all the new links that have sprung up over the last year and to allow comments to be made again.

Q2. And you’re back in school?

Q3. (Pause) Why are you back in school?
