Thx- OP !!

excellent, thank you

wow, I had no idea, thanks!

http://www.khanacademy.org/ is another. you can take courses, but cannot earn a degree. Lends credence to the expression 'buying a piece of paper' doesn't it!

Khan is very good.
In addition to that, here are a few others.

All free---
Http://www.edx.org MIT, Harvard, Berkeley
Http://www.coursera.org --courses from-lots of good colleges/universities
Http://www.udacity.com --instructors from good schools

Generally the same courses as on campus. Free. Never credit, but often u can get a certificate of completion.

Mondo cool.

Oh yeah, for those that may have picked up a Roku streaming player (costco, thx FW), you can stream the MIT open courseware there also.

For another splendid downloadable physics course, look for Prof Richard Muller's Berkeley class called 'Physics for Future Presidents' , available on iTunes and also from somewhere deep inside berkeley.edu I also highly recommend Prof Muller's book of the same name - and he'll even autograph it for you if you go up to campus on Cal day in April.

even more...

http://www.thebestcolleges.org/free-online-classes-and-course-le...

You'd think we'd all be geniuses with so much free education streaming into our living rooms.

Any suggestions for an excellent free online class about Balmer and Lyman series or one that explains exactly how protons and electrons follow magnetic field lines?


This is fantastic! Thanks to all contributors!

nomonies said:   This is fantastic! Thanks to all contributors!

I couldn't agree more. I have passed this thread on to quite a few people and they all think it's great.

Thanks, OP, for getting this started.

For UC Berkeley classes, here are some links for old CS and math exams, in case you want to test yourself. Having personally taken some of these tests, don't worry if you "bomb" them. For reference, 50% is about average on CS exams and 60% for math exams and usually translate to C grades. You should also be able to find old homeworks, projects, or exams for other departments if you Google the department or course's home page.

Math Exams
Elec Eng / Comp Sci exams

I think this thread should be made a sticky. These are all great resources, and this subject has arisen a few times. Staff, someone report me!

WOW~! THIS is the BEST POSY EVER! Thanks! Happy NEW YEAR!

where can you get a certificate of completion from which school i would like to take some accounting or engineering courses and then hoping i could use the certificate of completion for real college credit somewhere

crtt said:   where can you get a certificate of completion from which school i would like to take some accounting or engineering courses and then hoping i could use the certificate of completion for real college credit somewhere

I don't think you are going to find any school that will accept any of these as transfer credits (except, probably, a diploma mill). For one thing, I don't think these are graded. But the biggest reason is if schools accepted this, why would anybody bother attending in person at the cost of tens of thousands of dollars. It would be cannibalizing their own business model.

What these courses are great for is the ability to audit a class from far away for ones own enrichment. It can help prepare you for a college degree program, perhaps impress an employer, expand your own mind and, what the heck, let you casually drop how you took classes at MIT, Berkeley, etc.

Great list.

These are suck great resources, thanks for sharing all the sites!! I feel smarter already lol

Green for you. I will be spending some time here

Okay, since no one reported me, I reported myself. I said I'd use a few expletives if it made them feel better.

Thanks OP

Thanx Gauss44 - Excellent info (and to all contributing)

Take a look at the CLEP Examination program http://clep.collegeboard.org .
The exams are generally for entry level courses and cost under $100 each. If you take them, the college you are considering may take them in lieu of actual courses. Always check first to determine what your college's criteria are for accepting, granting and posting credit.

Everyone, thank Bo. He said that this will be a sticky for about a month to see what everyone thinks, and then make a decision from there. I guess he was waiting to hear what curses would come out of my figurative mouth.

I have watched every single physics class offered. Walter Lewin is a terrific instructor who demonstrates the Faraday Cage (escape a lightning blast), uses methane gas to fire a gun, and other fun stuff. Faraday and the gun are at the ends of lectures 4 & 5: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/physics/8-02-electricity-and-magnetis...

Thank you, OP! And if Bo's name should be mentioned in order to keep this going, then: THANK YOU, BO! It is such a great resource, so many folks jumping in with great links and even advice on certain professors. I'd been planning to check FW to see if Khan Academy or some of ther others had info her and.voila!! The discussion has been started. I'll be brilliant soon, y'all just wait and see. TX!

THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR CONTRIBUTING! - AND THANK YOU BO!

Everyone's contributions has made this into a great resource. I'm not aware of any other list that shows all of these in one place.

Any grad level free?

mrsthegreat said:   Any grad level free?

Yes, scroll down here: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/ The right column says whether it's graduate or undergraduate.

thatnks!


oh, for free grad classes in Lit.

Still, very cool OP, and great sticky

I took introduction to operations management at www.coursera.org, the modules included basic six sigma and lean sigma principles. The course was very informative, complete with exercises and quizzes to practice what you learned on the video lectures.

Word of advice though, if you're not ready to spare at least two or three hours of your time on the courses don't take it. It'll just be a waste.

Awesome post OP!

Definitely Clep. In addition though, some of these online courses offer certificates of completion. Scroll down to FAQ: https://www.coursera.org/course/bioelectricity

MIT offers study groups and online Q&A with some or all free online courses. They might have completion certificates too, but I haven't looked into that.

It's excellent news that this topic has been given a stickied thread!

I ran across this thread title tonight and it triggered a memory that I had posted a thread about free online courses a couple of years ago. It took me 4 passes through the FW archives to find it - not sure why the relevant search terms didn't seem to bring anything up from the archives, but I nosed it out finally.

I don't think the following free site, Academic Earth, has been mentioned yet in this thread (but I have only skimmed here so I could have missed it - apologies if I did).

I have taken a very quick look at the site's url and it seems to still be operating with lots of universities' names on their front page.
