Babbel Offers Free Language Courses for Ukrainian Speakers

I’ve been using Babbel to study French every day for the last few months, hav­ing tak­en advan­tage of one of their Yule­tide spe­cials to get a Life­time mem­ber­ship. Tues­day morn­ing, I received notice of a new press release from them. Babbel Launch­es Free Lan­guage Cours­es For Ukraini­ans On Its Plat­form Babbel to launch lan­guage cours­es for […]

Great List of Alternatives to Traditional Schooling

33 Ways to Learn That Are Way Bet­ter Than Tra­di­tion­al School­ing Nowa­days, I am inclined to think, as Clark Aldrich writes, that “What a per­son learns in a class­room is how to be a per­son in a class­room.” And, frankly, being a part of the bro­ken, immoral edu­­ca­­tion-indus­tri­al com­plex, the mono­lith­ic monop­oly for­ev­er, futile­ly trying […]

Back to Learning Coding

Hi! It’s been a while, I know. Katie is near­ly fin­ished with col­lege now, but I’ve been busi­ly learn­ing online again!  Codecad­e­my still rules as far as the resources avail­able and the qual­i­ty of the lessons they offer. FreeCode­Camp is either new­er or I’ve just dis­cov­ered them. In any case, they’re great!  Skill­crush has some good […]

Academy Caritas: Free Courses Online

Today’s post at Acad­e­my Car­i­tas lists some free online cours­es that look very good. I’m con­sid­er­ing using some of those to get back into the groove of school until I can go back “for real.” I’m in a good mood, as I’m at the girl’s place and I got to see Steven today. Hap­py day!

Free Courses Online

I’ve been look­ing into online edu­ca­tion late­ly, beyond my exper­i­ment with learn­ing pro­gram­ming (which is still ongo­ing). These are some of the resources I’ve iden­ti­fied. They’re all free, although you don’t get col­lege cred­it for the cours­es. Cours­era — cours­es taught by instruc­tors var­i­ous top uni­ver­si­ties. Khan Acad­e­my — video cours­es on every top­ic under […]

Fight Brain Fog!

Or, at the very least, give your­self more resources to fight it! Cog­ni­tive abil­i­ties are like mus­cles, in that they have to be devel­oped and exer­cised reg­u­lar­ly, even stretched to keep them flex­i­ble. We can’t nec­es­sar­i­ly avoid the cog­ni­tive deficits that come with some of our ill­ness­es, or as a side effect of our med­ica­tions. What […]

Academy Caritas: Learning to Code, Part 5

Y’all are tired of me doing this, aren’t you? Learn­ing to Code, Part 5. Well, I had some fun away from the com­put­er when my old­est nephew vis­it­ed today. He’s a non-stop bun­dle of ener­gy! We got the air hock­ey table cleared off for a game. Woof!  And I went to the library and checked out […]

Learning to Code, Part 5

I just can’t stay away from Codecad­e­my. I went back and fin­ished the Web Fun­da­men­tals course. I had been wait­ing because there’s JavaScript involved in the last few assign­ments, but it turns out I was able to do those with­out fin­ish­ing the JavaScript cours­es. I feel all warm and fuzzy now. It’s good that I have […]

Learning to Code, Part 4

After look­ing around at the Q&A forums at Codecad­e­my and find­ing that most of the oth­er begin­ners are as lost as I am, I’ve decid­ed that maybe I’m stuck on the cur­rent les­son because the author just isn’t very good, rather than because I can’t under­stand the con­tent. A friend has offered to write up […]
