Online Resources

  1. Sep 9, 2014 #1
    Hello, I was wondering what websites you would suggest for resources?
    Physics, mathematics, programming(any language), and engineering?

    By online resources I was thinking resources like wolfram mathworld. Any online resource as extensive as wolfram mathworld would be great.

    Really depends on the level, but you might be interested in something like Khan Academy, MIT OCW and Coursera.

    You might try browsing our Physics and Math Learning Materials forums:

    Search & dig for "MOOC" courses.

    I stumbled upon this modern concept a few months ago. Massive Online O-something C-something ("Courses"?). Academics design a learning course & post it for free. If you want some sort of "academic credit" then you pay for the exam and final grade it seems. Interesting concept that shoots a hole in the entire "academia requires bricks & mortar" concept. The one that impressed me was a course by a University of Michigan Computer Science Guy who developed a "how to program" course using the open source Python language.

    As an ol' skool graybeard, this concept kinda blew me away.
