online course, online learning, free websites

If you are looking to expand your knowledge to bulk up your resume or simply looking for a productive way to pass the time, taking online courses might have already crossed your mind.

With the increased demand for information accessibility in the Internet Age and the pandemic years, many websites now offer online courses for free.

With that, here are five of the best websites that offer free online courses, which are short yet valuable and substantial:

1 . Coursera

Life Hack describes Coursera as a website that brings a wide variety of topics and classes into one searchable database, making it a powerful tool for free education.

This website partners with universities and organizations to create in-depth courses from top universities, museums, and trusts.

Since it is free, the courses might be a little limited, but Coursera remains extremely useful to those who want to learn different topics or take courses from different schools.

2. Skillshare

Skillshare is an online learning platform that connects users with experts and professionals on the topic they wish to learn about.

It is sleek and well-designed, and it has excellent quality video content on courses on media, design, art, technology, leadership, and entrepreneurship.

Skillshare offers hands-on and community-based learning, which keeps learners motivated while around like-minded individuals.

3. Khan Academy

Khan Academy partners with many post-secondary schools to provide carefully curated courses from around the web.

Aside from its usable and well-organized interface which makes learning incredibly easy, Khan Academy offers in-depth takes on different subjects.

According to Finance Buzz, it offers short lectures that share a handful of information, building on each other as the learners progress to make it easier to keep up with their learning goals.

4. Open Culture

According to Life Hack, Open Culture highlights thousands of free online education courses taught through lectures, videos, and podcasts from universities around the world.

It offers materials that can only be found in the private sites of universities, now made accessible in easy-browse categories with Open Culture.

This website is helpful in finding resources on many courses in any area of study from universities in England, Australia, Wales, and the United States.

5. Codecademy

Finance Buzz dubs Codecademy as a website dedicated to teaching coding which helps learners know how to write code for developing interactive websites.

It has a centralized dashboard where learners can monitor their progress and organize lessons into complete modules using interactive tools.

Codecademy teaches users how to code using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and other useful programming tools with well-written and easy-to-follow courses.

Not on the list are honorable mentions, including university open learning initiatives such as Open Yale, UC Berkeley Class Central, and MIT OpenCourseWare.

However, the presence of so many sites offering free online courses is just proof of how everyone with enough resources can boost their skills and knowledge if they want to.

So, should you want to share some interesting information on your next party, or improve your resume to impress your future employer, you should definitely check these websites out.
