Here are some “best of” sites on the Internet, as well as a couple that are just very handy to know about.

oedb.org/library/beginning-online-learning/skip-the-tuition:-100-free-podcasts-from-the-best

-colleges-in-the-world. (It’s URL says it all).

oedb.org/library/beginning-online-learning/200-free-online-classes-to
-learn-anything. (Same with this one – the address says it all.)

www.collegeathome.com/blog/2008/06/19/100-useful-niche-search-engines-youve-
never-heard-of. (Another one where the name tells the story. Remember –
Google isn’t the only game in town!)

whyfiles.org. This site, operated by the University of Wisconsin,
looks at the scientific facts that underlie some of the stories we see in
the daily news, and you don¹t need to have a college degree to be able to
read and understand the science involved.

www.governmentattic.org. This site is dedicated to providing access to
government documents that your tax dollars paid for but which the government
chooses not to publish.
