Free Online Courses

Online College

This link was sent to me by Kelly Sonora, one of the organizers of the courses ,but I haven't actually gone into any of the courses so I have no idea what they are like. The one that is of most potential interest to visitors to this blog is one entitled The Ancient Mediterranean World. The segments that make up the course appear to be in the form of podcasts.

With new technology making the world more interconnected every day, it can be beneficial no matter what field you work in to have a good idea of the history of not only your own country but those around the world. These open courses will help you to learn about history in diverse countries and time periods to give you a well rounded knowledge of the social, political and intellectual history that has shaped the modern world.
