190 universities just launched 600 free online courses. Here’s the full list.

Dhawal Shah

If you haven’t heard, universities around the world offering their courses online for free (or at-least partially free). These courses are collectively called as MOOCS or Massive Open Online Courses.

In the past seven years or so, over 800 universities have created around 10,000 of these MOOCs. And I’ve been keeping track of these MOOCs the entire time here at Class Central, ever since they rose to prominence.

In the past four months alone, 190 universities have announced 600 such free online courses. I’ve compiled this list below and categorized the courses into the following subjects: Computer Science, Mathematics, Programming, Data Science, Humanities, Social Sciences, Education & Teaching, Health & Medicine, Business, Personal Development, Engineering, Art & Design, and finally Science.

Here’s the full list of new free online courses. Most of these are completely self-paced, so you can start taking them at your convenience.

    4. Chiko

      Will these universities give me a certificate after completing the courses and is there a maximum number of courses taken

      • Amit

        Yes, costs money though. …

      • Luis

        All thecourses here are free and you can do all of them if you like. A certificate is available but it is a NON credit. It is only a certificate of INTRODUCTORY to the course completed. I completed Psychology introduction and paid $60.00 for the certificate.

        • Ms. Em

          Is it okay if you just wanted to learn the course and you will not avail the certificate? or is it a must to get the certificate? Thank you..

      Kindly add courses in Property Management / Leasing Apartment and Single homes – thanks!

      • Stephanie Barbara

        Those are ALL very ‘state specific’! I’ve been thru that stuff before and the library, city hall, courthouses, H.U.D./Section 8, (*probably MANY other places!*)as well!

        One more ‘FYI’: I learned, unfortunately, the HARD way, that each state AND county AND city have their own Rules/Regulations, that can (& WILL) change, sometimes overnight!!

        I wish you the best in your endeavors!
