Brain Food

In an ongoing effort to stimulate my remaining brain cells, i am constantly on the lookout for educational opportunities be it in everyday life or academically. However finances and time don't always allow for much of the academic side :)

I wanted to give you a heads up if you hadn't heard about the following. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are providing 1,900 courses for free on their website. They are offering materials used in almost all MIT courses including syllabuses, lecture notes, problem and answer sets, labs, readings and reading lists, videos and special features.

Subjects vary hugely and you can access everything from History, Comparative Media Studies, Brain & Cognitive Sciences, Media Arts & Sciences to Women's & Gender Studies amongst others. I'm in the midst of wading my way through 'Gender & Media Studies: Women and the Media', 'Human Rights in Theory & Practice' and 'The Supernatural in Music, Literature & Culture'.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste...
