So let's say a guy is interested in learning how to draw (realistically, not cartoon). Anyone got a free or chap online course they think is especially worthwhile? Specifically I am eventually interested in figure drawing, but need not be that focused at this level, of course.
I'm looking for regular middle schools or high schools in eastern Massachusetts (i.e., the kinds with bricks-and-mortar buildings and classrooms with teachers and students there in person) but that also offer some courses completely digitally. E.g., students might go online to take an AP class or a foreign language not otherwise offered by the school. They might do so from home or from a computer lab at school or similar. [more inside]
I want to learn math. I signed up for Khan Academy and I like the format a lot. I really like that there are short lessons that I can complete, and that the software automatically checks the answers and lets me continue when I completed a string of 5 good answers in a row (or something similar). I don't like the video explanations though. I'm just not a video person, I learn much better from text. Is there something like Khan Academy where you can do math exercises online but where the explanation is in text?
That's basically it - I'm not finding any reviews online. Has anyone else taken it? [more inside]

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.
I’m about to start a six-month-long online course that I'd like to do really well on. The next ten days are very quiet at work. How can I use this time to help myself prepare, given that I’ll need to be in the office for part of each of the ten days...and then keep up with the course while going back to full-time teaching?

Mathfilter: Have you ever found any really, really good explanations of complicated mathematics topics online? Where "good" here gives higher marks for clarity, analogies, examples, and even aesthetics than for strict formal completeness, though that's not taken lightly either. (E.g.)
