Miscellaneous meanderings and philosophical ramblings. The title from a spiral notebook I used to jot down my thoughts on religion and other matters some years ago. I like to write, think and express my views on various issues. Robust discussion is welcome.

Open educational resources

I recently became aware of these educational programs. One of the nice things is being free, on the other hand, they don't grant degrees or provide credits.

Wikipedia has an overview here.

The term "open educational resources" was first adopted at UNESCO's 2002 Forum on the Impact of Open Courseware for Higher Education in Developing Countries funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Open educational resources are educational materials and resources offered freely and openly for anyone to use and under some licenses re-mix, improve and redistribute. [...]

I found out about this when someone noted (sarcastically) that MIT's OpenCourseWare has an old article I wrote, in the reading list for one of the courses.

The article is in the Experimental Study Group, the undergraduate course Current Events and Social Issues. In the readings list, it's at week 11 "Should abortion be regulated?", and references an article I wrote in 1999 and eventually submitted to which is run by Heritage House. I was rather surprised to learn of this and may submit a more recent article(s) to

I'm sure there are other similar programs out there just a Google search away. If one doesn't have the money, but would like to still learn, these are worth checking out.
