The world of education is rapidly changing, and for the first time in history students with limited financial resources in far-flung places can learn almost anything from the world’s best teachers. Latest Lesson is a non-profit site devoted to identifying the best resources for online learning and bringing them to students, parents, and teachers. Yet for all the education innovation in the Internet age, nothing has replaced great books and the kinds of human interactions that take place away from the web. For this reason, Latest Lesson features books, educational events, and organizations that help make online learning more effective.
Although Latest Lesson emphasizes science, technology, engineering, and math, we recognize the importance of a well-rounded education and will always feature must-see humanities and social science resources. Regardless of the subject, our goal is quality over quantity and helping surface content that may be hard to find or is not widely known. Whether you’re a homeschooling parent looking for enrichment for your children, an intellectually curious student, a teacher in search of supplementary materials, or even a postdoc with new research interests, we hope that you will find us useful.
