I am a big fan of Ted. He’s not related to me or a friend, as such. I mean, of course: TED. If you’ve never heard of it – whaaatt?
I came across their mini-lectures in 2013 via a lifestyle magazine. Now I have TED connected to my TV – it’s a treasure trove of ideas/concepts and thought-provoking snippets on everything you can think of. Art, business, robotics, architecture, writing, social behaviour… I could be addicted??
I watched: Anant Agarwal’s 15 minutes about new ways to educate people across the world. Fascinating stuff. And I was inspired – I found free on-line courses via The Open University and I’m about 20% into a creative writing course. /this all happened yesterday.
On-line learning is at your pace. When you want to do it. How you want to do it. If you can – attend a local course, join an interest-group, it is easy.
So – what is stopping YOU?
