The Best Websites for Free Online Courses, Certificates, Degrees, and Educational Resources

via How-To Geek by Lori Kaufman
Have you thought about expanding your knowledge by taking some courses? There are several colleges and other sites that offer free online courses, certificate programs, some degree programs, and education resources for teachers and professors.
OK, that’s the opening blurb and to an extent it’s accurate. However, not everything from every institution mentioned is freely available which is not always made clear.
Also, as I would expect from How-To Geek which is based in the US, most of the entries are American – and most of my readers are British.
I have nothing against America or Americans, honestly, but we do need to be aware that their educational system is very different from our own. And that studying a subject such as law would be pointless unless you intend to work in the USA. Science is, of course, universal and some of the computing stuff is really brilliant.
