Free Online Courses/Education For Adults

Thinking of going back to school, but you just don’t have the time or enough budget for it? Here’s a great solution: free online courses/education for adults. All you’ll need is a laptop, good Wi-Fi signal, and your undeniable thirst for knowledge. If you’ve got these, you’re on your way to a college certificate!

Below you’ll get to know 13 websites that offer various degrees or courses. Not only do these sites teach free online courses, but they also provide resources from top-performing universities and companies. Let’s get started!

  1. Khan Academy

With its goal of giving everyone access to free quality education, Khan Academy is one of the best educational sites in the country that offer courses focusing on a wide range of specializations—from mathematics to finance to entrepreneurship. The online academy collaborates with post-secondary schools and offers an interface that’s easily useable, giving you more reasons to consider signing up.

  1. Udemy

Whether you’re keen on taking up a business course or planning to enhance your photography skills, Udemy has your back. The educational site offers not only a blend of customizable platforms of other learning sites but exceptional content as well. There are also courses and lectures that require you to pay—but they are definitely worth the price.

  1. Coursera

If you’re looking for a website that covers a vast range of topics and specializations, Coursera is a good pick. This incredible online tool provides comprehensive resources coming from well-known organizations, colleges, and universities around the globe. The offered courses feature pre-recorded videos, projects, and quizzes to refresh what you’ve learned.

  1. Open Culture Online Courses

Offering 1,000 free lectures, podcasts, and videos from top universities around the world, Open Culture Online Courses is ideal for just about anyone who’s finding it hard to look for reliable educational tools in the web. Since the site features materials privately offered by universities, there’s no need for you to check out and browse through each university’s own website anymore.

  1. edX

Like its many counterparts, edX offers interested learners an array of topics to choose from for free. The site is affiliated with prestigious schools like Harvard and MIT, to name a few.

  1. iTunesU Free Courses

Apple users are in for a treat with this free online application. As long as you own an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or a MacBook, you can gain access to numerous learning tools and resources found in iTunesU. There are also paid content available. The app is highly convenient for everybody, with the interface pretty much similar to that of the iTunes.

  1. Academic Earth

With its mission of providing the public free access to high-standard education, Academic Earth is one of the most well-known educational websites in the world. The site offers a curated list of online courses by school and subject, making it much easier for you to explore and discover what you’re looking for.

  1. TED-Ed

If you’re more of a casual learner, you might want to give TED-Ed a try. Popular for its motivational web talks and educational videos, the site also offers supplemental tests and other video-based materials. With its impressive collection of animations, the site features a mix of entertainment and learning all at once.

  1. BBC Podcast

Like TED-Ed, BBC Podcast is ideal for individuals who prefer general learning or those who want to keep themselves posted on the latest topics and news. Whether it’s about sports, current issues, or finance, BBC’s weekly podcasts will provide you everything you need to know.

  1. LessonPaths

Another tool you’ll find useful and easily accessible is LessonPaths. What’s great about the site is that it allows users to link playlists of different learning materials from other websites. Once they’re done adding their favorite playlists, they can rank each of them depending on their preferences.

  1. Harvard Extension

Get a feel of what it’s like to study at Harvard by taking its free online courses on this site. Harvard Extension features a variety of courses available to the general public. Users can search for courses by professional certificate, making it an excellent choice for those who want certification.

  1. Stanford Online

Since Coursera offers only a few selected courses from Stanford, it makes sense to check out Stanford Online instead. The site features high-quality session-based courses, though there are courses that require iTunes. All in all, if you’re looking for a top-notch education for free, this is certainly one of the best choices.

  1. UC Berkeley Class Central

Although UC Berkeley has fewer courses to offer, its site includes various materials for free. These include webcasts, RSS Feeds, and of course, supplementary lectures.

 

Give Disadvantaged Folks a Boost

If you’re planning to sell an unwanted car, you might want to donate it to us instead. That way, you get to avoid the hassles of advertising and the costs of repairing and making your car look sellable. At the same time, you get the chance to enjoy a top tax deduction in the next tax season.

Most important of all, you’ll be able to make a difference in the lives of the people in your community who are burdened with disabilities and other disadvantages that prevent them from rising above poverty.

We will auction off your donated vehicle and use the proceeds to support the critical programs of the Goodwill organizations nearest your location that cater to these individuals. Their programs provide them with free access to job training and placement services, mentoring, career development, youth employment, disability benefits support, and other community-building support services.
