Free Online Courses Available

Posted by Val Fox on April 7, 2014 at 4:30 PM


Today I want to share some websites where you can access FREE online courses in a large variety of subjects.

This site is partnered with several post-secondary learning institutions such as: Stanford, Yale, Harvard and others. There are 875 free liberal arts and science courses available for you to choose from.

Edudemic has hundreds of courses on just about any topic you can think of along with lists of other class sources. Whether technology, art or current events, this site will help you find what you're searching for. Edudemic may be of particular interest to teachers that wish to further their professional development.

Here you will find more than 400 free online courses plus certificate programs in subjects like Psychology, Human resorces and Legal Studies.

4.   The Saylor Academy

This website offers 250 free online courses, many of which are focused on the 10 highest enrollment majors in the U.S. Students can also participate in discusson forums and it's hoped that soon there will be access to free textbooks. Courses include those at the high school and university levels.

5.    The Khan Academy

This is a non-profit program that provides "world-class education for anyone, anywhere." You can upgrade your current marks or you can choose from thousands of lessons to learn something new. There are also resources for those teaching or coaching students. This academy has partnered with The Museum of Modern Art, California Academy of Sciences, Stanford School of Medicine and others.

By the end of the week you will find a new page to this website containing a more comprehensive list of locations that provide free online learning. New sites will be added each week. Be sure to check in again for this growing list of FREE learning resources.

I'll be back again tomorrow as we feature the letter "G" during the April 2014 A to Z Blog Challenge.  If you'd like more information, click on the link below.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day, friends.
