Continuous Learning – Take University Classes for Free

In Daphne Koller’s Ted Talk, What we’re learning from online education, she talks about Coursera, a program that gives people the opportunity to take online university classes for free. The universities that are involved in Coursera are using it as a method to study online education. The courses that are available aren’t eligible for college credit, but they are taught by well known university professors from well known universities, Duke, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, and Stanford to name a few. Many of the courses do provide certificates of completion that you can provide to your employer or prospective employers.



This is a great way for you to add to your continuous learning.

Some of the classes that are offered through Coursera in September 2012 are:

  • Model Thinking
  • Securing Digital Democracy
  • Statistics One
  • Introduction to Computational Finance and Financial Econometrics
  • and Modern & Contemporary American Poetry. 

There are 26 classes being offered in just the month of September.

Go to to see all of the classes that are being offered each month. I’m already signed up for Dan Ariely’s class, A Beginner’s Guide to Irrational Behavior, coming up in March 2013. I’m going to enroll in the Model Thinking class that is being offered in September.

Go check it out.. The classes are free.
