    My latest blog post - "What Is Education?"

    "...these massive open online courses, or MOOCs, harness the power of their huge enrollments to teach in new ways, applying crowd-sourcing technology to discussion forums and grading and enabling professors to use online lectures and reserve on-campus class time for interaction with students."

    Online learning site BenchPrep recently announced a $30 per month subscription-based service to access a wide variety of courses. They need to replicate this subscription model with a whole lot of textbooks to free students from the burden of high book costs.

    This Newsweek cover story poses questions to individuals thinking about their educations and society having to wrestle with a troubled higher educational system. Well worth the time to read it. It echos many of my sentiments and other parts of the article made me think in new ways.

    I sure agree with this. My country does not respect education. Outrageous student debt. Often predatory for-profit schools motivated more by profit than the actual education. Not nearly enough of our nation's budget dedicated to quality education for all. So I agree with the post, WTF is wrong with my country. We can do better.

    Your education doesn't have to stop once you leave school—freedom from the classroom just means you have more control over what you learn and when you learn it. We've put together a curriculum of some of the best free online classes available on the web this fall for our third term of Lifehacker U, our regularly-updating guide to improving your life with free, online college-level classes."
