Wednesday Wishes + Free brand-name classes

Resolution #3: Sign up and complete free online classes at M.I.T.

I'm curious to see what happens with this new "online learning initiative" that will provide free (or with a small charge) online classes for anyone in the world. You could be from Germany or Malaysia or Brazil, and we would all be taking the same classes taught by a very exclusive school. How exciting is that? Those who finish the course will be granted a certificate of completion instead of a diploma, but I'm sure it'll still carry some weight in the real world. According to this article by Forbes, they're launching M.I.T.x in Spring 2012. I'll keep you updated, and hopefully, we can take the classes together. ♥
