As I previously said, this is the second part of the post about the big changes that are happening in the education systems around the world.
We shouldn’t be surprised if every day new students at their university lectures know more stuff than their teachers. This can occur particularly in classes related to computer programming, systems engineering or computational science and engineering.
In many cases, the students complement the teacher’s knowledge. This is due to the existence of a huge number of tutorials, manuals and courses available for free on the web, which are very user friendly and that can teach us about a vast variety of topics.
We can find content for anyone and everyone.
Here are a couple examples:
youtube.com/edu: Hundreds of universities and institutes have a channel on this site. Here, you can access relevant content and share it with others.
freesciencelectures.com: The name is pretty self-explanatory. On this site you can find science related videos and lectures.
ecorner.stanford.edu: For the entrepreneur that lives inside you, Stanford University shares podcasts and videos of entrepreneurial thought leaders and innovators from Silicon Valley.
oyc.yale.edu: Yale University has also available lectures of Philosophy, English, Physics, Economy, Engineering, just to mention a few.
itunes u: You can access this section through the itunes store. It contains more than 100,000 educational files: audio and video.
It seems that we’ll be lacking time because there’s infinte content.
