They don't, but here is a resource for you:
American Sign Language University American Sign Language
ASL University is an online curriculum resource for American Sign Language students, instructors, interpreters, and parents of deaf children.

Feel free to use the various lessons and resources for self-study at no cost. There is no need to register or pay. These resources are free for your personal study. If you are a teacher, you have permission to use the lessons to teach your in-person classes.

Another Green for you Rubadub. The course list is amazing. You really can get almost anything that you would normally have to pay for at a college or university...FREE!!!! There's even a Chinese language course...This may be the best find on Fat Wallet

PatandSassy said: I did this. Then I downloaded it but nothing or no way would it open on my Windows Vista Ultima. Is there a way to take this class online here without downloading it?
Hi, I am facing the same issue as PatandSassy...

On downloading and unzipping, the folder just contains HTML links to the same page. Where is the course material?

Thanks, I am kind of new to this!

I don't seem to have that problem. I'm using XP professional.
When you open the site go to the About OCW tab and take the tour and look at the FAQs All of the courses should open. You can also send an email at the Contact Us tab. Ask if there is a Vista problem. There is someone to answer your questions. I shouldn't think there's a problem with Vista.

The number of courses is really unbelievable. Great language courses. Chinese language takes you through intermediate study. You get to see live classroom video on some of the courses. Terrific. There is a least one course for everybody.

It takes a lot of money to keep things going. Just the website has over 1800 courses for free, and that includes all the course materials lecture notes, etc. So I can understand if they're not charging for the free courses, but ask if you'd like to help keep the website free. Pay It Forward for the next person who may not be as lucky as you and really needs a free ride.

So don't donate if you don't want to. Every educational institution asks for donations from alumni, current students, parents of current students... doesn't mean you have to give.

Use the website and one day when you become rich and famous because of something you learned from the website, give something back (or not). Maybe you might need a tax deduction.

New courses have been added. Go to website click on NEW COURSES on the left.

There are other colleges/institutions that offer free courses. There is a list of links at the bottom of this article:

How to Find Free College Courses Online & Other Free Learning Sources

Are you kidding? MIT is one of the world's leading universities for Engineering and Science. It is one of America's most prestigious universities. You need to get out more.

Get my learning on

This is a great find. Thanks OP. Anyone know if you get a certificate of completion or any proof that you've taken and passed a course?

learning2save said: This is a great find. Thanks OP. Anyone know if you get a certificate of completion or any proof that you've taken and passed a course?
You can't get a certificate or proof that you completed the course. There are no formal exams, hence no way to find out if you really did the work. Some universities and colleges will let you take placement tests based on your knowledge of a subject and let you skip the online course material and go on to the next level of learning (i.e. if you took Spanish 1 in the OCW courses a university might let you take the final exam for Spanish 1 and if you pass, they would let you enroll in Spanish 2). You could also note on your resume that you took an OpenCourseWare course in whatever and that might get you some points with the person doing the job interview.
