I want to take an online course about Ontology (Specifically related to Information Science). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontology_(information_science)
I want to enroll in this course to learn the basics for document/records/information management activities. The course can't require that I enroll in a degree program; that would be too expensive. My start date and time is flexible.
Can someone help me find courses that match this? I live in southern Wisconsin.

Yes Josie, you can perhaps assist me in another manner. Can you tell me how much this question is worth to the expert who accepts it? I often wonder if I should pay the experts a bonus. Since I pay a monthly subscription fee there is no built-in feature to offer a bonus until after they have already answered (or not answered) my question. Also, if I ask 10 experts per month for help will they get paid less than if I ask only 1 expert for help per year?
I am essentially trading my money for the expert's time. But, this is hard to do when I don't know how much money the experts receive.
Thanks for any answers or any links to pages that might help me better understand.

Thank you, Mike.

Mike, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I can help you with your question. I understand what you are looking for and I know that it can be difficult to find this specific information online - especially in course form. I don't know what your level of knowledge about the topic is so far, so I will start with recommending an online course with which I am familiar. It consists of several one 60-90 minute lectures and would be considered an introductory course. It's not specific to Information Science, although I don't know as though there are entire courses with a focus that is that narrow. A big benefit is that the course is free. I will give you the link to this, and then if you want additional resources, just let me know.
