Deal of the Day: Free Education

Posted on 14. Feb, 2006 by in Saving & Investing

I don’t know about you, but avoiding student loans would be a dream come true. However, with the insanely high price of education today, that dream is becoming increasingly rare.

Free-Ed.net is an online “school” where users from around the world can study, take courses, and participate in online community activities… all for free. The idea hopes to harness the power of the web to make quality learning content available to everyone.

It’s a great idea that I think will gain more steam as information becomes even more abundant. But if you want to take advantage of the dozens of free “courses” (some in video lecture form) then check out Free-Ed.net. From what accounting courses I have looked through they seem more like a beginners tutorial or a “learn accounting in 3 hours!” book – but definately a good starting point. They have courses in business, education, IT, healthcare, electronics, and science.
