A lot of top-notch schools are offering free online classes through this website. Completion of the courses do not grant college credit, but you do obtain signed certification from the teachers that could potentially be useful for employers. You can also take courses for your own gratification.

I have signed up for a Model Thinking course (September), a Neurobiology course (March, I think) and an Astrobiology course (January).

Lol, I thought Coursera was just something you pulled out of that hole in your body that ejects unmentionable things that we aren't allowed to talk about on DDO.

I have listened to courses on mit ocw and nptel, but this one looks better.

See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.

Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.

I would just take AP Statistics at your high school and do something interesting that it doesn't offer.

That is pretty damn cool. Thanks.

They have an amazing variety of courses. I signed up for the evolution course, statistics, philosophy, and basic computer programming. This ought to be fun.

Registered for Cryptography (Aug), Astronomy (Nov) and Genetics and Evoulution (TBA - probably March / April).

At the back of mind, I always wanted to do some course on these subjects. Thanks for the link.
