“All education is self-education,” writes the Mind Unleashed blog It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in a college classroom or a coffee shop. We don’t learn anything we don’t want to learn.
“Those people who take the time and initiative to pursue knowledge on their own are the only ones who earn a real education in this world.”
As Mark Twain advised, never let school get in the way of your learning.
And even you refuse to read, it’s still easier than ever to self-learn, with more and more educational opportunities online than ever before. Their post lists 12 dozen – in subject areas from science to business and history to maths –delivered by some of the most regarded offline places of learning in the world.
On top of these, there’s five places for online learning I can personally recommend:
- AYN RAND CAMPUS
- FOUNDATION FOR ECONOMIC EDUCATION
- GEORGE REISMAN’S PROGRAMME OF SELF-EDUCATION IN ECONOMICS
- MISES ACADEMY
- POWELL HISTORY FOR ADULTS
All these five are top class.
What other great online learning opportunities have you discovered?
