That title was intentionally attention-grabbing. Whereas there’s nothing free in life, there are some things that are less work than others, and sometimes you really do “get what you pay for”. In this case, it’s slightly true, this site dedicated to continuing education for free is not to help you acquire a degree or any credit hours, but to help you realize your goals in education: your eventual career.
I’m not a huge fan of college, but if you need to go there to find yourself, become an alcoholic, or at least start a trial run of being a grownup before you’re thrown into the world… by all means, go! I may be an interior decorator, but I’m digging the astronomy lessons on free-ed… and the sign language, next.
