can we have a thread of free courses online?

aside from coursera, what other page is good?


Watch MIT 3.091 All 35 hours, as many times as you can.


5 min example of how badass the Prof. Don Sadoway is. One of the best teachers of all time.



Some stuff I like:

Big list with 1300 free online courses:


Robert Paul Wolff's courses on Kant, Freud and Marx (professor goes on wonderful tangents):


Gregory Sandler's philosophy courses (fairly decent and thorough):


N.J. Wildberger's mathematics courses (idiosyncratic mathematics teacher that doesn't trust real numbers):


Tadashi Tokieda's introduction to Topology and Geometry (incredibly entertaining, you can watch it for fun):


Robert Sapolsky's (Stanford University) course on Behavioral Biology (if you wanna know all about human nature):


Bartosz Milweski's courses on category theory for programmers (accessible introduction to some really abstract mathematics):

II: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XTQSx1A3x8&list=PLbgaMIhjbmElia1eCEZNvsVscFef9m0dm

And of course, with MIT OCW there's no excuse being unsure about your mathematics (also check out the OCW site for exercises):

Calculus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K1sB05pE0A&list=PL590CCC2BC5AF3BC1

Multivariate Calculus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxCxlsl_YwY&list=PL4C4C8A7D06566F38

Differential Equations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76WdBlGpxVw&list=PL64BDFBDA2AF24F7E

Linear Algebra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZK3O402wf1c&list=PLE7DDD91010BC51F8


http://www.noexcuselist.com/ - basic list of a few websites with free courses

https://janux.ou.edu/index.html - a uni website which has a few MOOCs

https://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm - MIT youtube has already been posted but here's this too

https://entrepreneurs.maqtoob.com/the-37-best-websites-to-learn-something-new-895e2cb0cad4 - old article but it has a few free websites in it (highbrow, etc)

https://imagine.microsoft.com/en-us/Account - can only use if you're a student at a uni somewhere

https://fsi-languages.yojik.eu/languages/oldfsi/index.html - languages

https://learndigital.withgoogle.com/digitalgarage-au - will probs steal all your data

https://teamtreehouse.com/library - coding

there's also fuckloads of videos on youtube on any range of topic…


Are we limited to pre-made courses available over the internet?

I'm currently studying a course centered on Nicholas Bourbaki - Elements of Mathematics. There are some topics it does not cover, and some, I believe, it covers only inadequately, so it is necessary to supplement that course with topics it does not adequately have. This includes Probability Theory, for which I have chosen Michel Loeve - Probability Theory, Category Theory, for which I have chosen Jaap van Oosten - Basic Category Theory and after that nLab, Logics, for which I am scouring the web for as many logics and Logical ideas as possible, and Computer Science for which I have chosen Donald Knuth - The Art Of Computer Programming, and perhaps as a prelude: Donald Knuth - Concrete Mathematics. Also, Nicholas Bourbaki - Elements of Mathematics does not have sufficient philosophical considerations, for which i have chosen Bertrand Russell - Principles of Mathematics, nor concrete examples, for which i have chosen to think through the given content, applying my own ideas, experiences, towards them for myself.

If anyone can recommend drills for each technique in the above, I'd be very grateful.

Also, I consider it insufficient to merely study the matter and practice the techniques. I think it necessary to also experience relevant works of art: films, music, poetry, paintings, theatre, you name it! Anything to reinforce the studied in fun and interesting ways. Sadly, the only way I see to find relevant artworks without bothering other people is to do a systematic orderly review of all art that has ever existed, but I'm fairly confident that that's impossible in my lifetime, so I'm always on the lookout for recommendations for edificational artworks.


For (almost) all your video downloading needs: youtube-dl https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/ is a public-domain open-source video-downloasion command-line-interfaçate soft-ware. It works with many video-viewing sites.


I'm also studying mathematics, thanks for the recommendations. Anyone else have suggestions for studying mathematics? I heard Category theory and especially Higher Category theory is very useful in organizing mathematics, but I haven't seen any course that is suitable for introductory students that doesn't have an excess of fluff. Oosten seems more like an outline than a course: very terse and not really expanding on any of the topics, though perhaps he intends us to work them out on our own.

Perhaps a Mathematics thread would be in order, seeing as everyone ought to know some Mathematics, because Mathematics tends to give a much deeper and much more thorough understanding of all applicable things than other subjects (except maybe philosophy).
