What provocative opinion pieces have you read lately?

For a classroom exercise, I need a couple of mid-length (2-6 pages), somewhat provocative editorial-style essays. Difficulty: must be relatively self-contained (no extensive background knowledge required), of mid-level diction and conceptual difficulty (harder than the Daily Mail, easier than Malcolm Gladwell), ideally available online, and on a topic that might interest 18-20-year-olds.

Where to do (online) real estate training?

Affordable online GIS classes/certificate programs?

I have a master's degree in urban planning but I've been out of the field for a few years and want to come back with really strong skills. I'm not very good at self-guided learning, since I need the discipline of having assignments and deadlines. I struggle with ADHD, so just staring at an iTunes video will not work. I'm also low on cash right now. Please tell me about the online courses and/or certificate programs out there that are easy on the wallet. [more inside]

Completing my prequisites online

I have a Quebec high school diploma.

What are the best online communities besides metafilter?

I am interested in meeting people that like learning and value their education. I have come across a forum that I like a lot: PhysicsForum. I also like coursera, udacity and edX communities but, unfortunately, there are seldom meetups in my country. I would like to make some "geek" skype friends to know how the education is on other countries and exchange some ideas.

Online course on Monitoring & Evaluation with certificate?

I'm looking for an online course on monitoring and evaluation, with a focus on international development projects. The MIT JPAL course on Evaluating Social Programs would be ideal, but MIT's OCW doesn't provide any kind of documentation that I can use to show I've completed the course. I'm not looking for a diploma mill, but it would be very helpful to have a some kind of document to present to an employer that demonstrates I've completed the work. More broadly, if you have taken online courses - particularly those that do not offer any certification - what language have you used in describing that on your CV and to your employer?

Best Educational Videos?

Hi all, I am developing online educational videos (teaching ppl how to use software) and I would love to learn about any good examples that you have seen. I have definitely watched a bunch from Khan Academy, and love their style of short and engaging videos. Are there other examples you have seen that have been engaging and instructive? Many instructional videos that I have seen that have good content are boring and wouldn't hold someone's attention very long. Thank you for your help!

I'm looking for a fully online MA program in TESOL or a related field like Applied Linguistics, that is NOT meant for K-12 public school teaching, with the aim of professionalizing myself as an English tutor.
