Back to School

Back to School

As September approaches we're all starting to think about the kids going back to school, but what about us? You know, us adults. Have you ever considered going back to school? Perhaps there's a language you always wanted to learn, or historical period you've always wanted to know more about? Well what's stopping you? 

I know what many of you are thinking right now. I can't afford to go back to school, I've got bills to pay, the kids have soccer practise after school. I just don't have the time. Well forget about the cost. What if you could take courses online, for free, at a time that's convenient for you? Well you can.

There's an online service called Coursera that provides exactly the type of service we're talking about here. They offer free online courses from participating Universities for whoever wants to take them. No strings attached. Some even offer credit.

Their selection of courses is quite impressive. There are courses that will appeal to just about every interest. So what's stopping you now? Head over to Coursera and check it out. Let me know how you like being back in school, I'd love to hear from you.
