edX: Free Online Courses

divorcedreality:

I don’t think this was mentioned on the master post going around with a list of free courses and resources, so here’s another great one.

Just as another perspective….


This kind of shit will eventually put people like me (people with PhDs in their field and $100,000+ in student loan debt) out of a job. These companies are for profit. And owned by textbook companies.

why did the blond fail her calculus test

she had a biology test on the same day and being that she is a bio major she felt it would be to her interest to put more emphasis on the bio test because she is only taking calc as an advanced elective credit which would not effect her major gpa

Grad school crisis # 19471531

SWS is awesome. So glad I got into it early. Are you in the Hands program?

No, but I’ve heard about it. Are you? If so, how has it been? I’d love to hear about it.

I’m not but many of my grad school colleagues were/are. I’m probably now at the point in my career at which I should be a mentor. Which is pretty scary. I just know that SWS is a great group and that it is a great opportunity to get in early. If your advisor is pushing it, go for it.

I was/am mad lucky to have fabulous feminist mentoring in grad school even without the official nature of Hands, simply because I went to school where I did (Florida State). Where are you going to school? Is it a PhD program?

Each dimension is doubled!?  Think about that premise for a second.  That is a ridiculous cereal box.  Picture a normal cereal box… now picture eight of them pasted together.  Then picture yourself on a Saturday morning, ready to watch cartoons.  You wake up and go to your enormous cupboard, pull out a 2ft x 1.5ft x 7in inch box, open up the trash bag of cereal inside, grab a gallon of milk, dump it into a mixing bowl for breakfast, and sob quietly thinking about your life.
