If you haven’t discovered the MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses – yet, this is a great time.
I love Coursera; there’s also edX, Udacity, and more. The Great Courses (formerly Teaching Company) have a subscription program that’s very reasonable, giving you access to all their courses, and CreativeLive has tons of business courses (quality varies – you can get a year subscription. Udemy has courses (I have some there, ask me about discounts and freebies) and Lynda is available through the Free Library.
Recently I discovered a course that’s particularly relevant to the time –
Understanding Medical Research: Your Facebook Friend Is Wrong
The instructor, F Perry Wilson, is fun to listen to, and there’s a nice discussion of basic statistics (which can be a review).
They try to get you to sign up for the paid program, but if you don’t want a certificate, it is free.
Also, if you’re into classical music, the Philadelphia Orchestra streams concerts. I used to live in Seattle, and the SeattleSymphony.org website also has streaming. If you listen live on some concerns the conductor adds notes to the chat.
Curtis Institute here also does streaming.
