Skipping J-school? Links and resources for learning

Cleaning out the inbox on a Saturday morning and I ran across this …

Skip Journalism School: 50 free open courses

I’m a big proponent of education, so I don’t advocate skipping school to take some free online courses. (The title is just marketing anyway, right?) On that note, if you are in journalism school I highly recommend taking some business and computer science classes. Actually,  no matter what you’re majoring in, business and computer science should be part of your electives if you’d like to be relevant in your career.

The Online College site behind the link also has other interesting offerings, such as 50 awesome Ivy League lectures all about the future and Tools for a tough market: 100 resources for college grads.

So if you have nothing going on this weekend you can have yourself an online learning party. Enjoy.
