If you’re anything like me, you find it pretty easy to write-off online degrees. Maybe it’s because of the way that most of us are exposed to them (through sidebar ads and spam), or maybe it’s just that we’re a little traditional about our academic institutions. I’m not going to argue for or against online college degrees, but I am going to point you in the direction of another great resource for learning (and maybe getting a degree along the way, who knows?).
The website that I am ruthlessly promoting this time is the Online Education Database (OEDb). The OEDb currently contains reviews of 1,048 programs from 88 accredited online colleges. In addition to being a fantastic resource for anyone interested in getting a degree online, they’ve got detailed articles about everything you’d ever want to know, the OEDb offers a wide range of articles and resources for people who simply want to take advantage of the Internet to broaden their minds. By far, the best part of this website are all the resources. They’re presented in a nice straightforward listings that make them easy to use (provided you can find them). Some recent articles, to get you interested, include:
- e-Learning Reloaded: Top 50 Web 2.0 Tools for Info Junkies, Researchers & Students
- 100 Ways to Use Your iPod to Learn and Study Better
- Skip the Tuition: 100 Free Podcasts from the Best Colleges in the World
- 200 Free Online Classes to Learn Anything
- more . . .
The OEDb has some really interesting (and useful!) featured articles, so make sure to check them out. In addition to this, OEDb hosts two really awesome blogs that I strongly recommend:
