I’d say that time/project management is one of the most important skills that anyone can develop – valuable for oneself and valuable for employers.

That’s PRDV005 for anyone who’s curious :wink:

Welcome Fernando! We love Course Buffet – they connected with us a few years ago at the height of MOOC mania (so…probably 2012 or 2013), and still send folks our way :slight_smile:

Hi, I’m Lisa 34 years old in two days. I was highly passionate about art in high school, but life got in the way of my dreams as it sometimes tends to do. I’ve been a stay at home, homeschooling mom for the last six years but somethings been missing and I finally figured out what it was. After a ton of internal conflict and fear… I’ve decided to take the leap of pursuing my art full time, but due to situations beyond my control I cant go back to school to pursue an art degree so Saylor is one of many sites I’m utilizing to build my own program, I don’t need letters behind my name, just knowledge in my head and Saylor is making that possible with ARTH101. So here I am, nice to meet everyone.

And there’s never been a better time – between places like YouTube, podcasts, Wikimedia Commons, and free digital collections like those from The Walters Art Museum and the J. Paul Getty Museum, a whole lot of art is within reach without needing to travel for it.

Hello everyone!

I’m surprised I managed to stumble onto this site, but was happy when I found it. I’m mainly trying to get back into a more academic-centered mindset, as well as educate myself on topics that have always interested me. I’m interested in going back to school in the near future, though my goals are somewhat different after I hurt my back a few years ago. I figure that studying and learning is a good way to distract myself from body aches and leave a record of being productive despite my back keeping me mainly confined to my room most days. I’m also taking some web development and visual design classes, as well starting to study for the A+ certification. I’ve always wanted to expand my knowledge of computers; being stuck in bed or at my desk has given me the perfect opportunity to really dive in.

But while I’m here, the first course I’m going to take is entirely for personal enjoyment. So I enrolled in PHIL103, and I’ll be merrily contemplating abstract ideas with no verifiable answers to counteract the real-world education that fills most of my time. I’m a sucker for getting lost in my thoughts.

Nice to “meet” all of you! This seems like an interesting community, and I definitely appreciate the effort to make college-level accredited courses available for free, even though it probably bumps this page down past the 3rd page of paid-online classes that are available all around these days. I believe that everyone deserves the chance to a good education and to earn college credits - especially those who cannot afford to pay but have the drive to find places like this gem.

Happy to be here among the rest of the self-directed students :slight_smile:

If anyone ever wants a study buddy for a class - any class - you’re welcome to message me. I may or may not have the time available, but I’m always looking to explore a new subject!

Ok back to class :wink: Oh yeah, my name is Elizabeth. Happy studying!

#235

I’ll bet the “thinking about thinking” that drives philosophy studies will add value to anything that comes after!

Maybe we should say “yes” to one of the many unsolicited boost-your-SEO emails we get. (Eh, maybe not.)
