I personally don't bother with MOOC unless I have to. Tough there are a few OCW courses
that seem interesting. I find that I retain information much better using books.
Since I can go at my own pace, skip chapters I already know or just skim through them.
We live in the best time so far in terms of ability to educate oneself without anything but internet
access. Why not make use of it.
I just download a bunch of books related to the topic and start reading.
I also saved up a lot of stuff from 20-50G torrent packs in case the net goes down in the future,
as in AI makes finding copyrighted stuff easy, censorship and such. I imagine most users of this board also have a nice little library.
Seeing as a lot of stuff is getting deleted it's better to backup everything.
Tough most of my books are from public trackers,
because I'm not social enough (even online) to get into private ones.
Tough I would like to create some sort of an autodidact chat group
for sharing and helping each other, as I couldn't find any, aside from groups on Discord,
which I refuse to use. At the same time I don't feel my knowledge is good enough to create a
group like that and pretend I'm some sort of an all knowing, wise person.
