Ten Free Online Classes To Help You Get A New Job Or Keep Your Old One

by Hank Coleman

The folks at GetEducated.com have done it again.  Now they have a great article on their website listing some free online classes that can help you keep your job or find a new one if you have been one of the millions of Americans who have been laid off this past year. 

Now, I’m not talking about cheap crazy online workshops where you will not get much out of spending your time on these websites.  These are classes in some of the hottest areas in our economy like iPhone application creation.  And, these classes are brought to you by some of the leaders in education, both online and at brick and mortar institutions such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and others.

Top Ten Free Online Classes….

1. iPhone Application Programming – Stanford University (free course training people in iPhone application creation)
2. Learn Spanish Through Social Networking

Livemocha
– free online service that uses social networking to help you learn a new language

Mango Languages – complimentary basic lessons for 10 major languages

3. How to Win Customers in a Slowing Economy – Small Business Administration
4. Going Green – State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
5. Blogs, Wiki and New Media for Learning – Utah State University.
6. Teaching With Technology – University of Maryland University College (one of my alma maters!)
7. Medical Terminology

I like this post a lot! I love finding online education resources, especially for things that I want to learn about (Like live mocha for languages). Open source education is growing so fast that there is not much that you can not learn for cheap or even free!

Hi!
On your page I saw a link to Livemocha.
As you may have heard, Livemocha is no longer in business and that link no longer works.
Also, site, https://www.lingq.com/, is an web and mobile language learning tool for learning languages in context. This is a good analog of Livemocha!
