Can you get an MIT education for $2,000? | Scott Young | TEDxEastsidePrep

Оценок: 6667 | Просмотров: 370063
Scott is a speed-reading, vegetarian, holistic learning, productivity hacking recent university graduate. And, for the last five years he's been experimenting to find out how to get more from life. His current project is to learn MIT's 4-year curriculum for computer science in 12 months, without taking any classes. Scott earned his Bachelor of Commerce Honors from the University of Manitoba and his blog features more than 850 articles and books focused on "getting more from life". In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Sure, you can learn anything that doesn't require labs or expensive tools and equipment from the Internet. You may even be able to get a job. But you won't be able to compete with people with degrees in the long term. They will continue to rise thru the corporate ladder while you languish. You're just training yourself to be a worker not a boss. Add up the cost/benefit over a 30 year career.

No, like in medicine, each student should have an individual education program with many teachers helping him. That's the future. Not all children can educate themselves. Most of them need guidance. But at the moment we are witnessing massive educational systems and students that have to fit into that system, while it should be the other way around. School systems should be unique and fit the needs of each individual. So individual school systems specifically designed for each learner, that's the future, which should be the present.

I thought of doing this before, however, I'm slightly skeptical simply because I'm not certain what is the value of a non-degree (if you will) in the market. Sure, you can know a lot and be really good at what you do, but must most times you might not get the job just because that dreaded diploma isn't in your curriculum.

Kate ; (1 год назад)
this is honestly great.. i agree with the part where he says that coming to uni can be such a waste of time. i spend like 2~3 hours commuting every single day just to go to 3 lectures.. so much time wasted :( and by the time i get home im tired from all the commuting etc so i dont do much work. but a class in my uni decided to just do audio recording for the lectures (they're trying to force us to go to lectures) thats why im forced to go. sigh.
Ryan Schafer (10 месяцев назад)
Kate ; One of the girls who worked for me in my old job was studying French and English. She would often complain about the lack of contact time, and absence of specialist lessons such as translation studies. I was totally gobsmacked with the things she was telling me, her contact time was less than 20hrs a week, cultural studies just 1hr per week! Yet they want 1000's of pounds a year from you! It's definitely made me rethink my formal educational ambitions.

https://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm syllabi, textbooks, video lectures, assignment problems, quizzes and exams for many MIT courses (as well as some from other top institutions) are available through OCW. most of this is the ACTUAL video footage and ACTUAL handouts from the classes taught on campus. You can even enroll in edX courses which has most of the same resources and even includes message boards for collaborations with other students as well as actual graded exams @ edx.org

Learn what you love, if it's computer science you are on good track, then learn what is required for the job you want, probably it's similar to what you love. Remember that success comes when preparation meets opportunity, so prepare yourself for the many opportunities there are for computer science.
Marcus Aurelius of Romana (2 года назад)
+Aerohk record videos of what you are learning, post your source code to a blog, do side projects to build your portfolio, discuss programming on forums, and meet new people. Email CEOs from startups, and see what they require from those they hire, contribute to open source projects. There's a lot you can do without a degree to show you have the knowledge.

Brep Brep uni is not a vocational education provider. Its sole purpose is not to train you for a specific workplace. Regardless of one's preferences uni holds its value.
Brep Brep (6 месяцев назад)
Micha maybe the uni is too slow and demotivating for some people, you see, the people who get bored and try to craft their own business. It’s not bad although, you have good environment, people, friends, etc. But when you just want to focus on the subjects and only “download data” onto your brain, you could hack it/ making it faster.
Micha (8 месяцев назад)
Br Ba tbh I am yet to see am interesting technical position that doesn't ask for a degree. Can you quit assumig I'm thinking "emotionally". I'm not. As I said, you can get many jobs with no degree but only to a certain point. Depends on your ambitions I guess. Personally I'd die of boredome as a web developer.
Micha (8 месяцев назад)
Br Ba I agree that it is sufficient if your goals don't require the knowledge and experiences offered by uni but I'm just a little fed up with people laughing off college as though you can get the equivalent for free using internet resources. The two simply aren't interchangeable not to mention that many workplaces will require a degree. As someone who's done both, college definitely trumps being self taught because it's not just about the syllabus but the whole package.

The only advantage a university provides is networking with peers and alumni, apart from that the education can be obtained from internet at far lesser cost and sometimes even better in quality
Brep Brep (6 месяцев назад)
And for the grills.
Lope (2 года назад)
+Venkataraghavan Yadurajan Exactly. I would say online education is of much better quality. You get to choose what book/course/teacher to learn from, having thousands of reviews on sites like Amazon, Udemy, coursera, etc. Where I am from, people pay thousands of euros to go to certain schools and universities not because the education is worth it but because the networking is.

i find self educating is much quicker, much more effective, and especially when i can apply what i learned instantly to my work, much more profitable/satisfying. didnt go to uni years ago, took me some time to grasp concept of self learning, so some guidance would be welcome for newcomers. now i just feel limitless (well, time limited ;) )
Aung Thu Hein (2 года назад)
Excellent talk, Scott! I also believe in self-education. College sounds to me like a place where you go because you "have to". And it is this have-to basis that always makes me think, "Why is it that you have to do things the way other people are doing it?" I think it's better to just listen to yourself and do what you think is right than doing something that others are doing.
Sexual Potatoes (2 года назад)
It sure is. But sometimes, the system has some of us by the neck. I dropped out of college and started my own company when I was 19, which was great until I decided to leave it and move to New York to try out new things. Here I can only get a job (and a valid work visa!) if I have a degree, so I'm being forced to go my way through college in my 24's :\
Donald Regan (2 года назад)

I like this idea of using online courses instead of actually attending classes. For me it is both the money aspect and the time issue, as I havd to work full time and I have kids. But I discovered these awesome online free courses starting with khan Academy and then FutureLearn and Coursera, and I can say I have learned much more in the past few months than during all my three years of graduate studies.

Punjabi tyler (2 года назад)
how will companies know if you truly understood the subject studied? engineering, law, etc. How can one prove them self to be worthy to fit the job and it's criteria? If I represent a firm or fortune 500 company I will have my doubts putting my trusts into a person who is self educated than someone who graduated from a recognizable school. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love the idea. Personally I joined the military for experience and first and foremost the g.i. bill cause of tuition. I did not want debt for a quality education. I want a sound path where I know if I self educate myself I will be prepared to take on the career choice and if I'm the company, I know the person I'm hiring will be able to perform the task. Any thoughts? +Scottyoung

+Ahmed.a_94  Select any university of your choice and see what students are majoring in. You can go to your college and ask for the schools records. You'll also find out that a high percentage of students drop out.   When I say arts it goes to say English, literature, etc... anything that falls under the category of "arts" studies. I recommend watching a documentary called waiting for superman. It shows that huge companies like Microsoft and Oracle for examples have to go to other countries to find qualified people that have technical skills in the fields of science and technology. Newspapers are significantly less printed because you can subscribe to the company online. The world is changing definitely. I believe no matter what education is extremely important. Even if you don't earn a $60k salary.

aerozg (2 года назад)
+Engineering & Computer Tech Exactly my thoughts. Well, i think the entire education system is ripe for disruption. You spend your time memorizing countless facts, speeding through textbooks and problems, getting good grades, preparing for this big thing called Life. When in fact, you should be allowed to follow your natural curiosity and see where it takes you. And have the entire education system in place to support you. Simple as that.
My other profile (2 года назад)
+aerozg I see it going this way too with MIT opencourseware. I like the fact that self-learners can go at their own pace. I feel like university will still be the future also, but will only be for the people who don't mind the pace and pressure of the institution on them to get work done.

Hi T (3 года назад)
The USA spends trillions on warfare yet would not consider  actually subsidising education for students and then expecting them to pay taxes. To me that is fundamentally wrong.
Darth Vader (7 месяцев назад)
Yeah, let's pay 60% of our money in taxes for something you can self-learn for $2000. If you think it's a scam now, wait until universities can take however much they want out of your pocket, whether you use their services or not.
Catalogus (11 месяцев назад)
Brendano Di Cafrio Yeah, so forcing taxpayers to pay for other peoples expenses which does nothing but over expertise the labour market seems morally reasonable
Hi T (1 год назад)
Disagree strongly I live in a country where education is subsidised and it works fine. People who can't afford their fees get all fees paid by the state and the taxpayer. It's a good investment. It's a better investment than a fcking tomahawk missile. The idea that a 22 year old leaving college can be in debt to the tune of 80K is insane. Education should be available to all who seek it.
Ishaan Sabnis (1 год назад)
Wouldn't subsidized education lower private universities' tuition since public university tuition would decrease, leading to private ones needing to reduce tuition to get more people to go to them? Sorry if I misunderstand what you mean.
Shahriar Rashid (2 года назад)
+Brendano Di Cafrio Subsidizing education would lead to private universities raising tuition and increased competition for seats at free public universities. It would hurt lower income students the most. They won't be able to afford private and have a hard time getting into public. Capitalism is always the best way to go for poor people no matter what liberals say.
Tonya O'Dell (3 года назад)
Incredibly insightful and spot on. The benefits of being an entrepreneur of your own education (or the president of your own business of intelligence), should not put you in debt or suck the life out of you (i.e. waste your time, most people learn at different rates & methods) but should ultimately increase your worth.

Thanks for the replies! I looked for the Coursera stuff that you mentioned but couldn't find anything. Do you have a link?

Aleksandar Todorović (3 года назад)
Sure it can! You just need to work on some side projects. It will show the recruiter that you've managed to pull it of. If you manage to build something that is as good as the final project done by the MIT graduate student, there is nothing more you need to do. That project is going to speak for itself. Of course, I do think that you'll need to actually have a degree for those 4-year collage job, but I would also put this inside of my resume without even thinking about it.
Robben Salter (3 года назад)
Actually... Companies like Google are now offering their own certification via https://www.udacity.com/ calling them "nano degrees". The future of learning is self directed.

Lucy Anderson (3 года назад)
This is awesome if its the knowledge you are concerned about, and will go into business for yourself.  There really isn't anything college has to offer that we can't learn on our own.  What we pay the thousands of dollars for is the piece of paper at the end that we can indicate on a resume.  Sadly, employers like Microsoft and Google don't want actually intelligent people - they just look for the diploma.  
Jerry Kan (3 года назад)
+Lucy Anderson This is false, Google has been known to say publicly that they don't look or even ask for a degree. They look for results.
jason bell (3 года назад)
That's not actually accurate regarding the "employers like Microsoft and Google".  I have personally hired dozens of people to work for me and been on the hiring committee for various organizations over my career within one of those said companies and have hired from both camps, have and have not.  It depends on what stage in your career you are in.  Just getting started in life, degree is part of your "experience".  10+ years in the industry, I see that hiring managers don't usually put the degree at the top of the stack for qualifications that they are looking for. It's more about what you've accomplished, making sure the candidate can back their claims, and will they fit within the role they are being considered for.  Basically, can this person be successful and in turn, make me or my organization successful?  There are exceptions of course to every rule, such as in areas where the degree or a certificate is required by regulation, i.e. health, law, cpa, professional engineer, etc. So if you feel like you have something to contribute to any company that you have a great interest in and regulations aren't an inhibiting factor for the position, by all means, **MARKET YOURSELF** in every way you can and apply, and may the best candidate win the position.

It should be noticed that the speaker learns the MIT OCW materials while he is attending a university. He will need the diploma from his current school to get interviews from companies or go to graduate school. Basically he took advantage of the MIT notes and quizzes posted online, sometimes video lectures (not all the MIT OCW courses have them). Being a self-motivated, time-efficient learner is great. It takes interest that allows a person to pursue knowledge instead of merely a degree.

It doesn't take a genius to be curious about things... or to learn on your own. So people freakin out about that, well c'mon now. This seems really fun! I would love to take multiple courses in multiple avenues that would take too many years to do in a slow ass normal college setting. But online videos and quizzes are an awesome solution! Actually coursera is pretty cool too, and you can get certificates as well. But I'm sure theres tons of places to do this! Shoving data in my brain is makin me excited :D

Studies have shown that mainly people who are already well educated finish these MOOC classes. They are best for people who already have the skills and just need some certification to prove it.

+Takiado Laieon I enjoy coursera as well as edx. To digress just a little, I have often come across people who do not/never cared for taking additional courses once they finished with high school. Many of them were illiterate, and the funny thing is ... they think they are better than everyone else.
