    If anyone is able to contribute to make the list grow than share what educational resources you know!

    I'll be willing to check it out and see if it is good enough to add onto the list (I'm a nerd, so yeah...)

    Wonderful links for expanding the mind! I would like to add Coursera.com to the list for free and small fee online courses and specializations that offer certificates of completion.

    TED-Ed is probably the best site on the internet in my opinion. I do not visit it nearly as much as I should, but you can find presentations and reports on anything that interests you, and those TED Talks videos are very entertaining as well as resourceful and intelligent. It used to be my main place to go when I was in college for any media that I needed, and I suppose it has just gotten better since those days.

    I second the recommendation for Ted Talks videos. I've also found Khan Academy very interesting. YouTube has helped me learn a ton of stuff too. It's amazing how many videos are there on just about everything.

    I love Udemy! Pay about $10 bucks and take a well-rated course on there. You won't be disappointed. It's a great and interactive website.
