To clear things up, some FAQ

A number of different initiatives are offering university-level education for free. Some of the bigger initiatives covered are as follows:
  • Coursera founded by Stanford Professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng.
  • Udacity founded by three roboticists, including Sebastian Thrun, a research professor of computer science at Stanford University and currently leads the development of Google’s driverless car.
  • EdX is a not-for-profit enterprise of its founding partners Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Anant Agarwal, former Director of MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, serves as the first president of edX
What are MOOCs?

From Wikipedia - A massive open online course (MOOC) is a type of online course aimed at large-scale participation and open access via the web. MOOCs are a recent development in the area of distance education, and a progression of the kind of open education ideals suggested by open educational resources.

Q. How is this different than MIT Open Courseware or any of the previously offered free online courses?

The courses provided by these online learning initiatives have an element of feedback, student-to-student and student-to-professor communication and provide structured deadlines like a university course. By engaging students in quizzes and exams they go above the normal methodology of online courses

Q. What type of the courses are offered?

A wide range of courses are being offered belong to fields of computer science, medicine, music, humanities, business, management and more!

Q. Do I get university credit?

No, university credits can not be earned but you might be able to get a statement of accomplishment or a certificate.

So this is an actual class? (but without credit)

So we have to attend at the exact time, etc...
Its not "log in when you want and watch a video of the class, etc....do it at your own schedule, etc..."

Thanks
the majority of these are asynchronous. you'll have recorded lectures and tests/assignments that you have to complete by some specific date, but you'll know about it ahead of time so you can plan. one of the goals of MOOCs is flexibility, so it should fit your schedule a bit better than a more traditional course.

Enrolled in the University Spanish 1 course.. since having a real grade in the end (regardless of if its a worthless one) will motivate me to learn more than using my Rosetta Stone on my own. Wink

I'm guessing you're one of those "books are a waste of time" type people. Some of us enjoy the pursuit of knowledge, there doesn't have to be a monetary payoff.

LMAO this is for personal education, not credit. getting an email address for Harvard or Stanford will likely require an admission application, and a "small" amount of tuition. On the bright side, you WILL get credit and it'll likely be transferrable to a number of institutions.

nothing really interesting
What would be interesting to you? This is a diverse list of courses, I'll be taking on at least one this month.

This is my last semester in college though and with only two courses left before I graduate, I'll be using these free, online courses to fill up my extra time. Everyone should be aware of this option!

good intention to share the courses. Knowledge is power, leaning something new and having someone to teach you for free is a best thing that could happen. thanks for putting this list together.
