Ivy League is Closer Than We Think...

 
Did you guys know you can take FREE online classes in universities like Princeton, Stanford, Harvard, and many others from ANYWHERE in the world? Two weeks ago Coursera (company that coordinates such free online education) team emailed me and explained how they do it and how you can take advantage of this amazing opportunity 100% FREE! Yay!

I know many of you have probably heard about it already, but a lot of you haven't, and that's why I thought I'd make this post to spread the message I got from Coursera.
Basically, anyone in the world can register for online classes from top world universities listed on Coursera site. Throughout the course you'll be getting assignments and upon completion you usually get a certificate from the university. You can't get a diploma that way, however it is a great way to enhance your skill set in the field you specialize in and to add a very strong point to your resume. Plus, some of the academic institutions are also accepting Coursera certificates in lieu of prerequisites or even for academic credit. And if you don't see the school or class you're interested in on Coursera site, you can check out many other similar organizations like Udacity or edX.
I truly hope you guys will check out those sites and you'll find classes that will be helpful in your particular field.
And enjoy your schooling;-)

    1. maybe you can use a proxy to bypass the block, or change/hide your ip.

    2. I'm so very sorry, LoLo! you definitely need to get OUT of that country. I'm sorry I'm so harsh on that, but it's just so wrong they ban youtube there.
      in the meantime may be the advice above might help... can you at least do search on Google to see how to "bypass the block, or change/hide your ip"?

      And thank you so much for sharing the idea, Anonymous! I truly appreciate it;-)
