Planning start something new in this year? You can start to learn online now. Online education is gaining popularity over the last few years, as it should.
I have tried few of them last year and will share my experience with them in this post. Since I am a software developer we are going to focus on the materials related to it.
So, here is a list of sites that you should visit before you make you make your choice. I have not used much on all of them, but worth a spending some time.
The italic text below the title are taken from the respective sites. The order of names are arbitrary and does not carry any significance.
Editor’s Note: The list is continuously updated as more sites come live and as some of them get closed down

We believe that everyone is creative, and that giving people tools to harness their creative power has the potential to change lives for the better.

That’s why our mission is to unlock the world’s creativity.
