The Libraries Thriving online community at http://www.librariesthriving.org offers free educational seminars and other opportunities to collaborate with information professionals.
The project -- http://www.onlinecourses.com/-- is a free and comprehensive resource that is a collection of open college courses that spans videos, audio lectures, and notes given by professors at Harvard, Princeton and MIT. They offer highly relevant courses such as iPhone Application Development from Stanford and Cyber Humor from Oxford. This is something we believe would be a wonderful resource for those looking to explore additional educational topics and to see what college level course has to offer.
