Earn a Degree While You Work!

I love drawing all day, but I miss the barrage of academic stimulation that I took for granted at Grinnell. Having NPR on in the background helps keep my brain from becoming soup, which is a real plus, but occasionally I want something a little deeper and a little more on-demand. That's why I've been on a big lecture kick lately. Thanks to the power of the internet, one can magically transport themselves into the back row of an Ivy League lecture hall -- for free.

The goldmine for me is the MIT World site, which offers full lectures in a wide range of disciplines. How about "Descent into Limbo" with Maurice Sendak? Or "Mammalian Cloning and Stem Cell Therapy: Problems and Promise" with Rudolf Jaenisch?



Let me know if you have found any other great caches...

Awesome, thanks for "turning me on" to MIT World. I can't wait to hear some of these lectures.
