With the cost of college courses rising, those who choose to attend have to be very careful to stick to their degree plan. The plan usually includes only one major, two at the most, because anything more would be too costly and time consuming. However, we oftentimes need more skills than our degree plans can encompass. If your child is majoring in Fashion Design to start her own fashion company, then she may need courses in Entrepreneurship, Web Design, and Accounting, as well as her degree coursework. Instead of paying extra for those classes or even waiting until she is in college to take them, why not learn those subjects for free online now? Afterwards, you can pair her with a mentor in the community for an apprenticeship period.
Likewise, your son may want to be a traveling Engineer who speaks French fluently and plays the guitar. All of those skills are available through free online learning. A term that some use to describe one well versed in many areas is a “Renaissance” man or woman. A more African centered phrase for this type of person is an “Imhotepian” man or woman. Imhotep was the first doctor of record, but also an architect, scribe, astronomer, and vizier to the King. He also designed the first pyramid – the Saqqara Step Pyramid. He must have had deep knowledge of Math and Earth Sciences, because the Saqqara Step Pyramid still stands at about 5000 years old.
