Sometimes Writers Have To Go Back To School . . .


I’ve published two posts in the past about how writers (and, folks who don’t write much at all) can get free higher education to aid them in their work.

But I’m not talking about taking creative writing courses—more like having a character who’s a doctor and taking an anatomy course

Here are those two past posts:

Research Resources for Writers

More Help for Researching Writers

And, here come some more resources

MITOpenCourseWare

From The Site:

“The idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.”
Dick K.P. Yue, Professor, MIT School of Engineering

Unlocking Knowledge

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity.

Empowering Minds

Through OCW, educators improve courses and curricula, making their schools more effective; students find additional resources to help them succeed; and independent learners enrich their lives and use the content to tackle some of our world’s most difficult challenges, including sustainable development, climate change, and cancer eradication.

Open Yale courses

From The Site:

A Welcome From Diana E. E. Kleiner
Founding Director and Principal Investigator

We welcome you to explore Open Yale Courses where you can discover a wide range of timely and timeless topics taught by Yale professors, each with a unique perspective and an individual interpretation of a particular field of study. We hope the lectures and other course materials, which reflect the values of a Yale liberal arts education, inspire your own critical thinking and creative imagination.

Academic Earth

From The Site:

Rethink Education

Academic Earth believes everyone deserves access to a world-class education, which is why we continue to offer a comprehensive collection of free online courses from the world’s top universities. And now, we take learning outside the classroom with our original series of thought-provoking videos, designed to spark your intellectual curiosity and start a conversation. Watch, learn, share, debate. After all, only through questioning the world around us, can we come to better understand it.

By The Way…

It certainly seems those are all Free
