Continue Your Education

Just because you’re out of school doesn’t mean you have to stop learning. The Web is full of educational resources that can assist you in gaining knowledge and getting a degree.  Hare are sites for virtual classrooms, educational podcasts, learning foreign languages and musical instruments, obtaining a GED, advancing in your career, and finding online colleges.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Educational podcasts are easy to access, entertaining to listen to, and usually free. Search for a specific topic or head to a site that gives a sampling of what is available and current.
  • Some language-learning Web sites offer complete programs and others let you learn a few words or phrases at your own pace. Choose the one that suits your needs.   
  • The following sites each list dozens—possibly hundreds—of colleges that offer distance courses. Make a checklist of what you are looking for in an online school so that you can easily narrow down these exhaustive lists.
