The internet has always been an incredible resource for information, but if you're motivated enough, you can take that a step further and get a free or inexpensive college education. MOOCs, or "Massive Open Online Courses," are real classes that have been made available online from schools and universities. Many of these courses are free, but if you decide to pay, you can actually get a certificate of completion or a MicroMasters from it. Here are some of the places you can find these MOOCs:
Devin wants to learn how to write apps to create games. Leo says that the skill is in high demand and every kid is taking computer science classes to learn it. Leo advises starting at iTunes U, which is free. For Android, most of it is written in Java. There are a lot of tools to write in both platforms. Google has great resources on how to write for Android at Android.com.
Terry wants to know if there's a way he can get a discount on Lynda.com. Leo says he can get a free trial, but isn't sure about a discount on it. Leo recommends checking out iTunes U, since there are a million free courses there, many of them from universities. For casual use, he should start with iTunes U and Kahn Academy. Another option is to look for tutorials on YouTube.
