Excellent Free Online Courses

Palm Trees

It’s March, and that means  “Spring Break” for many colleges is upon us! So in that spirit I thought I would share some new online course offerings I’ve come across to help increase your IT skill set … and many for no charge!


Online College Courses

I freely share two online course sites I think you’ll find very useful:

Both offer a wide range of courses, online and many in the IT field.

Examples of Available Courses

For example, two very relevant topics available at Coursera:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Information Security and Risk Management in Context

… and from edX:

  • Wiretaps to Big Data: Privacy and Surveillance in the Age of Interconnection
  • Building Mobile Experiences

Available from both are course certificates, awarded upon successful completion (you can also just audit the course). edX also offers college credit (for a fee) for some courses. For example “Introduction to Computer Science” is offered by Harvard as a full college credit course for about $2,000.

Have a look, I think you’ll find many useful offerings to help you keep your skills current!
