Isaac Asimov once said – “Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.” Did you know? Bill Gates the founder of Microsoft, Steve Jobs the founder of Apple and Mark Zuckerberg the founder of Facebook all dropped out of college and all made millions of dollars. I am not asking you to go and dropout of your college too but I am just trying to tell you that a formal university education is after all not as necessary as most people claim it is. In the long run what counts is how wise and knowledgeable you are. It is not necessary that you acquire that knowledge only by attending classes in universities. You can acquire knowledge from many resources like books, newspapers, magazines or websites.
With the advent of the Internet more and more educational websites are mushrooming online. This is providing students, especially from the backward locations of our world, to achieve quality education. In fact some world class universities like MIT and Stanford are giving away many of their actual class lectures for free on YouTube along with other course content like notes and exam papers.
