Why not take advantage of these classes offered by the world’s great universities?

The internet has brought us many things, good, bad, and just plain stupid. There is one way, at least, in which we are undeniably better off because of the internet and that is the because of the availability of free online university courses. At the click of a mouse, and for no money at all, one can attend the same lectures, follow the same syllabi, and read the same books as students at the world’s great universities, studying under the world’s most distinguished professors.

Here’s Aleteia’s list of some of the top online courses available now. Why not try one?
