There are a number of free (or nearly free) online learning sites. I have spent a lot of time on Khan Academy, and it is a great site, but is that the future of education?
There has been a great deal of discussion on MOOCs, both for and against. On this site (jeffbohler.com – Rethinking Education), I would like to enable a discusson on the future of education, the business models that will enable it, the technology and methods that will support it, and other related concerns. I have initiated this discussion with a few of my former students who have graduated recently and have similar interest and questions about the future.
Below is a link to a list of free education sites from www.refseek.com. How many have you tried? What are the good things about each site? What could be better? What is missing from these educational opportunities? Please leave a comment about your thoughts on this very important topic.
