Open Online Universities – making education free on web

I was born in a village where it takes 4 hours to travel just 40 miles. I started my schooling in a shed where we used to sit on the floor filled with sand. There were hardly 2 teachers who taught me to read, write and basic maths. There is no scope of Computers or Internet at that time (especially at my place….even now !)But the world is changing now(again….. not my place!!) . The Web is changing the way of education. You can now sit in your home and listen to your favorite programming class directly from Harvard university(or any of your favorite one).Geeky Brains Blog is always trying to find informative and useful web content. Now we are introducing you the concept of “Open Online Learning” in order to make education simple and open for all.
