Searching for School

Last month I wrote about ways to take free online courses in this post, and I promised to follow up with more tips. While you’ll still have to wait a little while before I get around to posting on that topic again, I did want to let you in on a search engine I just found.

Say that you were interested in taking a MOOC (massive open online course), but you didn’t really want to sort through all of the results you’d get if you searched that topic.

What would you do?

Well, if you were in the know you’d simply visit and let them do all the aggregating for you. All you need to do is type in a topic that you’d like to study, and RedHoop will list all of the online course providers that carry a class similar to what you’re looking for.

Here’s an example. Let’s pretend I want to take a course on designing my own online course. By searching that sentence on RedHoop, I’ll be able to find not only which platforms offers such a course (Udemy does, if you’re wondering), but also how long the class is and how much it costs.

Don’t you just love it when someone else’s great idea makes your life easier?

Yeah, me too.
