If you havent heard, universities around the world offering their courses online for free (or at least partially free). These courses are collectively called MOOCS or Massive Open Online Courses.
In the past seven years or so, over 800 universities have created around 10,000 of these MOOCs. And Ive been keeping track of these MOOCs the entire time over at Class Central, ever since they rose to prominence.
In the past four months alone, 190 universities have announced 600 such free online courses. Ive compiled this list below and categorized the courses into the following subjects: Computer Science, Mathematics, Programming, Data Science, Humanities, Social Sciences, Education & Teaching, Health & Medicine, Business, Personal Development, Engineering, Art & Design, and finally Science.
If you have trouble figuring out how to signup for Coursera courses for free, dont worry Ive written an article on how to do that, too.
Heres the full list of the new free online courses. Most of these are completely self-paced, so you can start taking them at your convenience.

Do they offer gunsmithing and firearm technologies?
LOL! Prolly not. That takes some brains. It is a pretty long list from around the globe though.
It’s a trap!!!
I use Coursera.... The courses are beyond fabulous.
Even the technical classes in advanced neuroscience and medicine topics. They are the real courses taught in the top universities, not summary courses.
What a fabulous resource!
I’ve taken some stuff on Udemy and I can’t complain.
Besides they are short and I can get some stuff for the annual review.
I did a trial of Coursera and had too much going on. I’ll get back to it eventually.
Well thank you for the affirmation of my post. From an eyewitness/user no less. Lucky for me I already know just about everything...........LOL!
Thanks for that list. I sent it to my granddaughter who has a masters in education leadership and who is the principle of the primary school in her town. She might find some helpful courses as she seeks her doctorate.
So do I get a Student email address with one of these courses? Ahummm...with the added benefit of Student discounts from various Vendors?
None of the provided courses are religious. I audited a number of classes from Dallas Theological Seminary, Reformed Theological Seminary, and BiblicalTraining.org. All of them have been free.
For pay courses, I have used Pluralsight.com for several years. They have predominantly computer programming and computer systems courses. They run a “special” around Thanksgiving providing full access for a year to over 3,000 courses for $300. I have taken courses on redis, Python, Docker, Kubernetes, PostGreSQL, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and NoSQL. It is a good deal and the courses are pretty good.
After you join the limited version of this you get this message:
We believe in feeding minds, not mindless feeds
Become a Medium member for $5/month or $50/year and get unlimited access to the smartest writers and biggest ideas you wont find anywhere else.
Will only improve a few lives. The masses can’t be distracted from their entertainment videos, music Facebook and twitter, etc.
Thanks for the info.
Thank you for the references as I too am interested in Religion courses. I’ve purchased many of the “Great Courses” and love them. I’m in a University setting and crave the learning environment. Will take classes until I’m pushing posies.
Well you might get a student discount on STARZ and HBO and SHOWTIME etc., etc., etc.
I already have more than enough degrees and don’t give much credibility to them. I still need to finish a degree in chemistry as I’m lacking the necessary understanding to help me in pharmacology. Only need a few courses for the degree, but the knowledge is what I seek, not the piece of paper.
Do they give credit toward a degree for completion of these courses?
Just asking, I would still consider it a good thing even if they don’t.
I was told that all courses in the state university system were free to seniors in Pennsylvania. Anyone know anything about this?
I've also read that here in Massachusetts there's a law that says that any resident of a city or town that has a college or university can "monitor" basically any class or course at that college/university.That would be really cool if you lived in Cambridge (Harvard/MIT),Boston (Boston University) or Newton (Boston College).
Sadly,my town doesn't have any colleges or universities.
All of the course offerings I looked at show that they are free to AUDIT but cost an unlisted amount if you want college credit.
I suppose it would be to your advantage to audit the class first so you can see the assignments, then pay and take the course for credit.
