One of the best things to come out of the web when it comes to education is the offering of free courses, and even free degrees (if your grades earn them), available to anyone, anywhere, from leading universities. Below we have 5 of the best online sources for these types of offerings, compiled by guest writer Ray Bennet. – KW

Edx is most special about offering free online courses from some of the best universities in the world. It is one of the most famous and known online learning tools that is available for students worldwide. You can also get an accredited certificate for a very reasonable price after finishing some of the available courses on their website. Edx is most known for their reputable and reliable computer science courses, but they also offer courses in many other different fields like business and management, languages, economics, finance, engineering, humanities, biology, and life sciences.
It has hundreds of specializations that you can just learn online at any time wherever you are. It is also one of the leaders of online learning websites as it is famous for offering a huge variety of courses for free. I believe that some of the courses on this website are not even taught in most universities, as the website makes sure to offer whatever people may be looking for. The website was founded by Stanford professors and is used by 24 million people around the globe. It is really massive, and you can definitely learn whatever you want using it. One of the best things about this website is that, after subscription, they send you a weekly e-mail with a list of all the new available courses in the fields that you are interested in.
