If you are thinking of changing careers but don’t think you have enough training or education . . . in my book How to Reinvent Your Career, you will be able to find some suggestions about how to learn things for free.One of my favorite new ways to learn things is through iTunes’ program called iTunes U (the U stands for university). Some very well respected universities participate in iTunes U, and offer many free video downloads that you can access to learn about almost anything. Even if you aren’t considering changing jobs, I highly recommend checking out their free lectures.
You can also learn a lot on iTunes through their podcasts, which are also free. A podcast is a recorded audio program that you download onto your computer, iPod or MP3 device. There are excellent podcasts on just about any topic you can imagine.
For a list of some great free educational sites, check out the following:
