Jun 29, 2009 In today's economic climate, paying for technology isn't prudent, and for some students, it isn't even an option. Fortunately, there are plenty of freebies on the web that can help with document creation, research, writing, storage, collaboration, studying and more.
There are a number of companies providing audio and video lectures (TTC, TLC, some others). These are far from free. However, your local public library probably has some you can take out, and there are loads more available through the magic of inter-library loans. I've been listening to college lectures when I drive for years and years now. History, archaeology, literature, music and languages all work fine in a situation where you are eyes-busy/hands-busy and have the spatial-relationships part of your brain in use.
