As I have had a restful week while feeling under the weather I came across some resources in this month's Family Circle magazine. There is an excellent article entitled, " Leader of the Pack". I highly recommend you to read this article so rush out to your magazine stand to read this article. Just a few pages before this article is another one called "Live and Learn (online!)". There are a few links I would like to share with you from this article.
ITunesU...we have all heard of this and know what content they cover. I am actively downloading the new version of ITunes right now.
LiveMocha.com...I have checked this out briefly. It looks to be a good solid resource for a language tutor. It is connected to facebook and you have tokens that you can buy...this makes me a little standoffish (my word) when I see tokens and paypal used in the same sentence. So is this really a free program. I am not sure yet. I will play more around with it.
Academicearth.com...looks like recorded lectures and they do have courses you can take for credit and the courses look to be under $500. The one I looked at was at Oxford for about $424...it is comparable to the local university possibly depending on added fees.
Einztein.com...has a claim to be a learning social network. I think this is probably a coming of age website that is looking for its niche in the social network marketing. Looking for a specific group of people to boost their name. It looks promising from what I have viewed.
Do pick up a copy of this month's Family Circle...it is a good one this month!
