Looking for an online summer course? Try SlideRule!

How many of you are familiar with SlideRule? Apparently, SlideRule “allows you to search a ton of online courses in the subject area that interests you.” In an attempt to encourage creative professional development this summer, I had to share this latest find with you. tlb

As always, when this time of year rolls around, I find myself browsing the MOOCs for a new and engaging way to spend some of my free time. As an educator who pushes students to enjoy learning, it is important that I model this by finding new educational opportunities for myself. Now, usually, this means bouncing back and forth between Coursera, Udemy and a host of other online platforms in exhausting searches. This year? I’m using SlideRule!

SlideRule is awesome because it allows you to search tons of online courses at once for the subject that interests you. Then, it organizes the results by price, date, and ratings. You can even filter my teaching method, for those of you who prefer video lectures to online readings. This is a great place to direct students too, as it allows them to pursue their own interests outside of the classroom.
