I recently had mono and so I had to find new ways to study via internet... I love youtube EDU, itunes U, and the free kindle books. I think these items may become an essential part of my study habits. Does anyone use any of these items and or how do you like them and or use them? I burn the itunes lectures and listen to them on my commute to school.

It's great to see what breakthroughs technology has given us. I wonder if my education would have been different with the aid of what we have now to use. it does make studying a whole new world.

Yes it really does... I love having the kindle software... I found that it was super easy to download and even easier to use. Theres a website that has all the classics on it.

Technology is such a wonderful thing, isn't it? There are new ways to study and it does make the educational process less static in many ways. I just remember back in the old days of the 1990s, before all of these things came out. We were on the cusp of them, but they did not really start gaining momentum until I was well into High School and most certainly the new methods of studying really hit when I finally got around to college. I think that ebooks for one are the best invention ever made, as you can search for information easily, instead of thumbing through the index, and then thumbing through hundreds of pages to find the page. Just type in a page number and you are there. The other technology is just icing, but if there has been one thing that has changed college education, is the use of ebooks, especially in online education. The old hardcover textbooks were really ponderous and really made learning a bit of a chore in my opinion.

I have done both... and I enjoy both! Science needs an in your hand text book in my opinion but other classes should be all set and able to function with e-books... I love the whole I have a choice thing...

Well, you just educated me! I have done a lot of podcasts, but didn't know that you could get lectures that way as well! I hadn't thought about it. That's a great way of using your commute productively. And I didn't know kindle books were free. I don't have a kindle anyway!

Some kindle books are free others are not... most of the classics can be found for free and almost every book is less than 10 dollars... Also I dont have a kindle. What I have is a laptop with the kindle software on it... The software is free on amazon so I use my laptop. Might get a kindle but I doubt it.
