Education on the internet

You don’t have to stop learning when you leave the classroom; there are many other places out there where you can acquire knowledge, especially if you have access to the Internet. In fact, for anyone who wants to keep their mind sharp, learning must never stop.
This process, called lifelong learning, is born from a concept that suggests that your knowledge about a certain subject will become obsolete within two years if you do not update it. And once you begin to investigate the world, you will want to know more. A famous Khmer proverb says “the more you learn, the more you don’t know”, meaning that it is only when you begin to study something that you realise the enormity of information that there is to learn.
Whether you are a teacher, a student, or an employee, you should adopt a habit of lifelong learning for the continuous acquisition of knowledge, professional development and career advancement. One easy step to engage in lifelong learning is to explore and learn from the following online learning sites:

http://nobelprize.org/educational_games/
A very useful learning site from the Nobel Foundation. On this Web site you can learn by directly interacting with the provided graphic and animated simulation on the subjects of peace, economics, medicine, physics, chemistry and literature.

www.wikipedia.org
A free encyclopedia featuring numerous articles about the arts, biography, geography, science, society, technology and much more. It is available in many languages, including Khmer. In English, the site contains 3,213,262 articles and continues to increase. In Khmer, the site contains 2,251 articles. Wikipedia can be the first place to visit when you want to learn quickly about something and, from that, you can find additional resources. At Wikipedia you can also update existing information and add new topics if you can’t find them on the site.

http://alison.com/AllCourses
Free online interactive courses and skills training for the workplace. Alison offers a wide range of learning topics; some suggested useful ones are How to use Gmail, Financial Literacy, Managing Safety and Health in Schools, Workstation Ergonomics and Basic Study Skills on mind mapping, time management, keeping a study diary, reading and writing techniques, as well as listening, speaking and telephone techniques.

http://www.moeys.gov.kh/Includes/Contents/Icha/
An e-training course in Khmer about HIV-AIDS lets you be more aware about the disease, its transmission, support for people who are infected in your community and how to better protect yourself.

So, wait no longer to start your lifelong learning journey and help our nation avoid this problem: “A nation that doesn’t adopt lifelong learning is a nation with eroding knowledge capital.” LIFT
