I have replied to 2 different people this week via private message, and both times it didn't go through because the user has their private message option either not set up or blocked.

If you're messaging someone, be sure you can RECEIVE messages too!

Hi.
Does anyone know of other free online Gen-Ed alternatives to the TEEX courses? I could make sense of Cybersecurity 101 because it addresses common themes like child protection on the net etc. Cyber 201 is just too much a struggle- too many technical terms that sound like Greek and Latin to me. I do not have so much technical knowledge about computers and I find it a waste of my energy to pursue this, even if it offered open book tests.

FYI, a topic on private messaging isn't really the proper place for this discussion, but that being said...

As you've discovered, just because a course is free doesn't mean it will be easy, or that everyone needs to take it. You're not alone in not really grokking the content of the TEEX course materials... many others have voiced similar concerns. However, if you're taking them for GenEd purposes, you're barking up the wrong tree (at least at TESU anyway). As far as I know, only one of the TEEX credits fall into GenEd (Cyber 201, which comes in as CIS-244 @ TESU), the others are applied science (CAP-295 and CYB-120) and will end up as free electives if you don't apply them to a CS or CIS related AOS.

As for the best selection of free GenEd courses, take a look at OnlineDegree and Saylor Academy. Both offer free courses, the only thing you pay for is proctoring.
Goal: BSBA-CIS and ASNSM-CS from TESU by March 2019. (May add BSBA-HR/OM AOS if I end up bumping to June.)

I will echo that this is a question not appropriate for this thread.

However, I am currently taking the cyber security course through online degree. I took all 3 Teex cyber course. I agree that cyber 101 is good and appropriate for most anyone but the other 2 are far too technical and boring for the majority of people(I was just particularly stubborn for no particular reason). The onlinedegree cyber security course is MUCH more interesting and approachable than some of the TEEX courses but it is still rather technical at times.

A disclaimer: we still have no idea what onlinedegree cyber security will transfer to tesu as. It may come in as criminal justice or it may overlap with Teex cyber 101. I'm just taking it because I want to and don't mind paying $9 for a course that may not contribute to my degree.

Although, supermind, I believe you are in India, right now. Onlinedegree is not currently available internationally yet.

Supermind, you sent me a private message regarding my post above. But, unfortunately, I cannot respond since your account is set to disallow private messages. I find this a bit ironic considering that is precisely what this thread was created to address. Smile

If you enable private messaging in your forum settings, I'd be happy to respond to your questions.

I am sorry about that. Just this morning, someone else pointed out to me that I need to enable my PMs. I did that. I am slowly trying to understand the rules and modes of functioning here.

But maybe Alanis was going meta. A song about irony with no irony... isn’t it ironic?
