Launched in late 1998, Free-Ed.Net has been a pioneer in free online learning from the very beginning. But now it is time to revise the mission (again) to include resources specially selected for the new wave of self-directed lifelong learners. Here's why:

Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever must be learned. -- John Holt, Educator

Worthwhile learning experiences are personal adventures that last a lifetime. Formal education is a structured experience that lasts for a relatively short, predetermined period of time.
