Back To School for You Too

It is that time once again for you to send you kids back to school. Well in these trying times this may be a great opportunity for you to go back to school as well.

Let’s face it wither you are gainfully employed, entrepreneurially inlined or a job seeker have a wide array of skills and knowledge can surly give you a leg up on your competition. Thanks to the internets there is a metric-sh!+-ton of resources to help you reach your goals.

I’ll break it down for now with a handful of my favorites. Trust that this is just a small sampling of the possibilities and I will features more as I get them. If you have something to add to the list please feel free to leave a comment. These are not in any particular order of ranking but here are some that I use every day.

Before the iPod and other portable media players became popular not so long ago, on-demand learning was possible through audiotapes and compact discs primarily featuring audio versions of books. Now that more advanced technology has made it possible for more people to make podcasts at a smaller cost, more and more of these audio lectures are turning up, thus more information in this format has become available to just about anyone.

Aside from being able to choose the time and venue for your learning experience, as a podcast user, you are also able to dictate the pace, as well as be able to better retain the information by replaying, or learning by repetition. In iTunes you will find podcasts on science, language, philosophy, management, history, and arts, to name a few subject groups that may be included in the student’s curriculum at school. There are also podcasts on the topics of spirituality, self-development, and professional advice. Podcast Directory in iTunes:

On Networks: Passionate shows from people passionate about the topics you are looking for. Food, Family, Health, Travel or Style can all be found here. I like the fact that all their video, shot-from episodes are all shot in HD and look great if you have a “Theater PC” like my Mac Mini HTPC or an AppleTV.
