Free Online Courses at Harvard, Yale, MIT, Oxford and More

Take free courses at Harvard, Yale, Oxford and more!


I love taking classes. Love. It. But some of the fees for courses are ridiculous. And sometimes you just want to take something for “fun”. Some of the premier universities help you do just that.


Recently 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.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.

  2. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you few interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I desire to read even more things about it!

  3. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was
    just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything
    you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me
    mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  4. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Many thanks

  6. I like the valuable info you provide in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and check again here regularly. I’m quite certain I’ll learn lots of new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

  7. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  8. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one!

    It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice
    of colors!

  9. I travel all around the world for work, and it used to be really lonely. Now I can go onto Tinder and have a date lined up in a new city before I even get out of the airport!
