Free online college courses (Courtesy of Kim Komando )

One thing I don't miss about school is the homework. However, I did love attending class and learning new things. It helped if the teacher was interesting, of course.

I'm sure many people feel the same way. You would love to take an educational course, whether in finance, science or literature. However, you don't want to deal with the homework, the commute or navigate school bureaucracy.

That's where the Internet saves the day with sites like Academic Earth. It offers hundreds of course videos from colleges and universities around the world. The schools include MIT, Yale, Stanford and other prestigious institutions.

You can view entire courses in virtually any subject. There are also playlists that mix and match lectures to cover specific topics. Want to know more about philosophy, math, astronomy, art or entrepreneurship? What about how rainbows, particle accelerators or musical instruments work? All these topics and more are available.

This site is a great find for anyone who loves learning new things. Students can use videos for reports with the site's citation function. It's also good resource for job hunters. Updating knowledge in your field and being able to demonstrate that you care about continuing education can give you an edge in the job market.
