I do not understand those people who go today to study at regular universities. In my opinion – it’s just a waste of time. It is possible that this is a biased opinion, but let’s not forget that I am a practical teacher who has been working in the field of education for more than 30 years.
Why is it a waste of time today? Sorry, I said wrong, this is not a waste of time – it is a harmful waste of time. The fact is, today knowledge is changing so quickly that university curricula simply do not have time and possibility to adapt all the information that appears today.
Therefore, it used to be prestigious to graduate from famous universities, but today even the best graduates have to be retrained. I was the head of the company and I know perfectly well what I’m talking about. A diploma even from a prestigious university means little to an advanced operating business.
At the same time, today there are simply gigantic opportunities for self-education and online learning. I myself studied in many projects, starting from Coursera and ending with Open2Study. Thus, I received a very large amount of knowledge, skills and even diplomas.
This is a link to a project called BitDegree. Here you can study online, at any suitable time and get the most relevant knowledge. I am far from being a “technical” person, it can be said that I am an absolute humanitarian, but even I am very interested in learning here and applying my skills.
It’s nice that most of the courses here are completely free. But even paid ones are very inexpensive, just a few dollars (don’t forget about discounts and promotions). By the way, I also plan to teach in one well-known online project, but I’ll tell you about it another time.
