Coursera – Free University level courses

My passion is access to education, I am always looking for continuous development and personal growth. It is even better when that growth and learning comes with a $0 price tag!!!! So I introduce you to Coursera.

Coursera partners with some of the highest ranked and world renowned universities like Columbia and Yale to offer some free courses. Yes free. Courses from teacher education to languages to database management.

There is bound to be a course that you are interested in. I am going to sign up for. You can view courses by institution, language, start date. It is really exciting. I will be signing up for Developing Innovative Ideas in New Companies on September 30th.

You can also choose to enroll in their signature track for low fees and obtain a physical, certified degree from the university that is offering the course. This gives your study credibility and is a great resume builder. If you pay you are also more likely to be committed to your course. I would pay for the courses that increase my value and boost my qualifications in my chosen field. Just a thought.

Challenge yourself to learn something new. If you are not learning, you are not growing!
