Good news! Higher education free at last!

Friends, if you are not planning a start up, you should STILL join this free course at Udacity. It is not just about enterprise, it is also about initiative and clear thinking. I am doing a statistics course (flipping coins in air with Prof Sebastian Thrun and wondering about conditional probability etc.) and now I have enrolled for this start up course too. I got inspired after I successfully completed my 10 weeks Organizational analysis course with distinction from Coursera and received my certificate from Prof Dan Macfarland. I decided to explore more courses. In my twenties, learning was all about memorising things, getting a degree and a job. Now, I am enjoying learning just for the fun of learning. These courses are free and very convenient. All it requires is a computer and a good internet connection. And willingness to learn. Happy learning!
