More Help for Researching Writers


Writers are known for going out of their way to find the information they need for their stories.

Back in July, the post Research Resources for Writers referenced The New York Times’ article, Open Education for a Global Economy, which links to ALISON—Free Online Courses and Certification.

So, a writer could go out of their way to ALISON or a number of other resources mentioned in the article.

One of them which I didn’t link to in the other post was brought to my attention this morning in an email from my Best Friend.

Khan Academy—“learn almost anything for free—with a library of over 3,400 videos…we’re on a mission to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace.”

Their main categories of learning are Math, Science, Computer Science, Finance & Economics, Humanities, and Test Prep.

Salman Khan, the originator of the Academy gives an entertaining account of how it came into being in this video :-)
