Since it's Back To School Month on BUZZNET, I wanted to fill you guys in on a little unknown secret I've discovered this past spring: Coursera. Coursera is one of the newest online learning centers for top rated college courses. The best part is that they are all free! Yes, you read that right! Free! And yes, it is 100% legit.
Coursera offers a plethora of online courses from every category from business to music to social sciences from some of the highest rated colleges in the world. I took a writing class this past May that I absolutely loved that I just had to sign up for more classes! I just started a class from Duke University called Think Again: How To Reason and Argue and it has been really fun! I have a few more lined up for the fall/winter and I can't wait to get started. When you can't afford to even step foot in a college, Coursera is a dream come true. I just have to point out that you don't actually receive a degree in any of these fields after completing a course but you do earn a certificate of completion. Most of them are just for enrichment and/or to help you out in a field you may be struggling in.
However, if you're a college student looking for some credits, they have a wide range of options to choose from. Some courses even offer Signature Track, where you can earn a verified certficate that will look lovely on your resume and transcript. Signature Track isn't free, but you can get all the details here. Financial aid is available.
