Take Classes at Harvard or Yale for Free!

Fancy taking a class at Harvard or Yale? You can! And you don’t have to pay a dime.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have become a growing trend in online education. In 2008, David Cormier, manager of web communications and innovations at the University of Prince Edward Island coined this term.

What are MOOCs?

MOOCs are designed like college courses but are available to anyone – any location – and the best part is that it is at NO COST. Unfortunately, there’s no college credit but some courses will provide a certification of completion (there may be a small fee if you want the certification). Course topics are numerous – Science, Math, Psychology, Art, Leadership, Literature, Computers and the list goes on and on.

Check out these sites for more information:

Coursera is one of the most well-known sites for online education. Coursera has over 400 courses in more than 20 categories, created by 85 Universities from 16 countries. Their courses are available in 12 different languages.

EdX is another non-profit course site created by founding partners Harvard and MIT and based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. EdX offers MOOCs and interactive online classes in subjects including law, history, science, engineering, business, social sciences, computer science, public health, and artificial intelligence (AI). It has partnerships with institutions in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, China and Korea.

MIT has their own open courseware site and most of the materials used in the teaching of almost all of MIT's subjects are available on the Web, free of charge. They have more than 2,000 courses available.

Stanford also has online and open courses. Stanford offers many self-paced courses which may be easier for some.

European institutions also offer courses through Germany-based Iversity. Their courses are offered in both English and German. UK’s Open University has recently begun offering free online courses as well.

For those looking to learn a language Duolingo offers some free language education courses. And for some additional computer knowledge, CodeAcademy teaches programming and coding in online, free and interactive lessons.

      Wow.... I may have to think about the "top" one but I tell people that their first job out of school is most likely not going to be their "forever" job. That just doesn't happen any longer. But they should still try to slay it and take in as much as they can. That first job is the first step in a long career so do a good job to get off on solid footing. It's hard to find that first "real" job - for everyone. You don't have to be a Millennial to have gone through that so they shouldn't sweat trying to find the perfect job. That perfect job is most likely not going to come right out of school.
