We do not publish any of the educational material linked to from our site, as we believe this is best done by established educational institutions. The classes we link to are designed and delivered by top class educational specialists such a consortium of US Universities through "Coursera", Stanford University and The Open University to help you master the material.
This means the institutions providing the online study facilities are able to offer courses that cover a wide range of topics spanning the Humanities, Medicine, Biology, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Business, Computer Science, and many others.
Whether you're looking to improve your cv, advance your career prospects, or just learn more and expand your knowledge, we hope you will find the courses you want that are interesting, stimulating and that you can enjoy sharing with others.
Below is a brief description of the online courses offered by Coursera:
"Classes offered on Coursera are designed to help you master the material. When you take one of our classes, you will watch lectures taught by world-class professors, learn at your own pace, test your knowledge, and reinforce concepts through interactive exercises. When you join one of our classes, you'll also join a global community of thousands of students learning alongside you. We know that your life is busy, and that you have many commitments on your time. Thus, our courses are designed based on sound pedagogical foundations, to help you master new concepts quickly and effectively. Key ideas include mastery learning, to make sure that you have multiple attempts to demonstrate your new knowledge; using interactivity, to ensure student engagement and to assist long-term retention; and providing frequent feedback, so that you can monitor your own progress, and know when you've really mastered the material.
We offer courses in a wide range of topics, spanning the Humanities, Medicine, Biology, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Business, Computer Science, and many others.
