Do you have anyone in the family who wants to go to a champagne school on a beer budget –and ice water grades? One top university, MIT, has taken steps to educate self learners of the world by putting the course materials from almost all their undergraduate and graduate courses on the Web. As you might imagine, there are topics spanning the globe. For example, by using the speedy “Search” function you will find over 450 links to real estate content from the many real estate courses available

They point out that using these materials does not require any registration and is not a degree-granting or certificate-granting activity – nor does it provide access to the MIT faculty. But the price sure is right – there is no cost whatsoever.

Talk about free speech!

Know anyone celebrating life on the flip side of 50? This simple search function has been designed as part of a move to bring some of the internet social networking to the over 50 Boomers that the xGeners have been touting recently. The search function called “cRANKy” shows the four highest-rated search results based on the editors' and members' ratings. The ratings and opinions of the community determine how cRANKy ranks sites, making this the world's first age-relevant search engine.

This unique search function is just one of the many features and communities these folks have brought to the web. They tell us that “these communities reflect what boomers are most eager to talk with each other about, from 50+ Singles and Six Degrees of Separation (Make New Friends) to Bookoholics, Travel, and Photography.”

Interesting place for your friends or relatives who call themselves Boomers!
