Fight Boredom-Go to Yale
Supposedly a crisis is also an opportunity, right? Don’t sit around bored-why not go to Yale? Open Yale Courses is a free online series in which you can audit a real Yale course, given by a real Yale professor. Courses are available in history, philosophy, the Old and New Testaments, literature…there is something for every interest. My favorites were Early Modern England, The American Revolution and appropriately for our times, The History Of Epidemics. Each course is about an hour long and each subject is covered in about twenty-four classes. Absolutely free and you don’t even have to register.
Or if you want to make some art on a Dollar Store budget, you are welcome to my Youtube video on the subject that is made with rank beginners in mind. “Acrylic Pour: Barebones Basics on a Budget”
Online learning will probably be a growing trend in the future, and here’s your chance to become an expert. It’s nice to go to Yale without paying the $53,000 per year tuition, too.
