200 universities just launched 560 free online courses – this is a somewhat dated blog post – from a few months back, but I’m pretty sure the number of universities and courses is only increases with time.
If you haven’t heard, universities around the world offering their courses online for free (or at-least partially free). These courses are collectively called as MOOCS or Massive Open Online Courses.
In the past six years or so, close to 800 universities have created more than 8,000 of these MOOCs. And I’ve been keeping track of these MOOCs the entire time over at Class Central, ever since they rose to prominence.
