Top 10 Free Online Learning Resources

"Enthusiasm is contagious"

TOP 10 FREE ONLINE LEARNING RESOURCES
according to:  @schink10

If what they say is true, that enthusiasm is contagious, then my goal is to (proverbially) sneeze all over the earth.  On a scale from 1-100, my enthusiasm, passion, and love for learning is a 100.  I love it.  I spend almost all of my free time learning and all of my work time (teacher) trying to ignite this enthusiasm in others. I have found, over the years, that when you are passionate about learning, students respond with more passion.  When you make learning fun, relevant, purposeful, autonomous, and rewarding, it really can be addicting to anyone.  I will continue to learn everything that I possibly can, but what is more meaningful to me, is that I will continue trying to ignite a "passion for learning" in every person that I possibly can.




These are a couple pieces of advice:
  • "Learn how to Learn" by choosing a topic you LOVE.  If that cannot be at school, then keep learning outside of school.
  • Be sure that your learning is purposeful.  If you do not understand why you would possibly need to learn something, there is not going to be much intrinsic motivation to learn it.  There are probably some things that you do not think you need to learn or do not like to learn, but explore why you need to know that.  Ask your teacher.  Ask your friends.  Ask your principal.  Ask your parents.  Sometimes, if we learn the purpose of a topic, it instantly becomes more rewarding to learn about.
  • Observe other learners.  In school there seems to be a natural "pecking order" which has already determined who is the smartest and who is the "opposite of the smartest".  This isn't true, however.  I have found that usually people who are good at learning, or successful at learning, are not necessarily smarter, but have better STRATEGIES for learning.  Keep talking to others about how they learn.  Find the way that works best for you and you will instantly become a more powerful learner.  Everyone is more intelligent than they give themselves credit for (except for my friend Don).
  • Connect with other people passionate about what you are passionate about.  This is easy these days with Twitter, Google +, forums, blogs, etc.....  You will have a whole set of close friends that you never even knew that you had.


WITH THIS BEING SAID:

I recently created a video of my TOP 10 Free Online Learning Resources for people who want to learn and learn and learn.  The problem, was that the video ended up being 22 minutes, which is too long.  Nobody wants to watch a 22 minute video in 2014.  (or read a really long blog post....sorry about that)

After receiving a suggestion from someone I look up to a TON, Jeremy Blumengarten, better known as Cybraryman or the "Librarian of the Internet" (@cybraryman1 on Twitter), I decided to create a post that shows the TOP 10 broken down into shorter videos including only on the segment for the specific website.  This way you will be able to navigate to any of the videos/sites you would like to check out.

I challenge you to learn as much as you can!

Here they are:

VIDEO 1 - This was just my introduction video to why I thought this video was necessary and also to show one website that costs money that I still believe deserves recognition, although it could not make the list because it costs money.  (Lynda.com)


#10 - Google Guru









#9 - MIT OPEN COURSEWARE








#8 - Khan Academy



WEBSITE:  www.khanacademy.org/



#7 - Changing Minds


WEBSITE:  http://changingminds.org/


#6 - Sophia.org


#5 - TED

WEBSITE:  www.ted.com


#4 - CodeAcademy




#3 Amazon (Kindle)

WEBSITE:  www.amazon.com (check out the Kindle Store)



#2 Udemy



#1 YouTube

WEBSITE:  www.youtube.com



Please comment with any questions, comments, feedback, or suggestions.

MOST IMPORTANTLY 
Please comment back with anymore free or cheap online learning resources.  I do not claim that this list is all- inclusive.  This is just my list based on my personal experience and opinion.  

What are some others?

I LOVE LEARNING!
