As the internet continues its expansion, more and more people are looking for unique ways to take advantage of it. One of these is in offering strange and unique online classes designed to expand your mind in any number of ways.
If you are interested in learning something completely new, and a little offbeat, check out some of these class offerings.
Introduction to Turntablism
Unless you are already a DJ, or very old, there is a good chance you don’t even know what a turntable is. (That’s okay, old people are still trying to figure out apps.)You see, not so long ago these were needed to listen to music off of these large round, and flat discs. Now Oberlin Experimental College is offering classes in becoming a professional DJ, starting with the lost art of scratching music off of a turntable.
Elvish, The Language Spoken in Lord of the Rings
This is not a joke, if you want to learn how to speak with the elves in their native Sindarin, the University of Wisconsin is offering this is in their class roster. We are not really sure what purpose this would serve, unless there are plans in the works to add more movies to the series.
Now here is a class where you may actually be able to earn a living. Circus arts covers everything from how to act like a clown (as if you didn’t already know) to how to walk the high wire (as if you would want to). Triton College is offering this class in case your ambition is still to run away from home and join the circus.
Learn to Sing Online
Calling all The Voice hopefuls. You can now learn how to sharpen your singing skills online. Even Adam will be impressed with your vocal talents after finishing your online singing lessons. Just remember to thank your virtual professor when you win your first grammy.
The Anthropology of Magic, Witchcraft and Religion
Now we are calling all Harry Potter buffs. This Moorpark College class explores the world of magic and its applications in our modern society and how it correlates with various religious beliefs. Did you think we were going to say it teaches you how to turn your baby brother into a toad? We would sign up tomorrow.
The Meaning of Life
This one is pretty obvious, but you have to wonder if it ever gets to the point. Offered at the Rhode Island School of Design of all places, we were left wondering when designers became such avid philosophers. The most enlightening thing we’ve ever heard from one is “make it work”.
UFOs in American Society
This was going to be a list of Six until this class flew over the desk. Temple University allows its students to study the effect of the UFO on American society. I wonder if there is a field trip to area 51.
There is no end to what you can learn online once you know where to look. If you are looking for a career change, or just want some senseless information to clutter your brain then take a look at some online schools and the stores of unique classes they offer.
