Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) – Free access to Coursera

Starting today, college and university students around the world can learn and earn certificates on Coursera for free. Current undergraduate, graduate, or recently graduated students with a verified school email can sign up to get free access to over 3,800 courses, 150 Guided Projects, 400 Specializations, and 11 Professional Certificates. They can enroll in programs for free until July 31 — no credit card required. Once enrolled, they will have until Sept. 30, 2020, to complete the programs.

During this period, students will be able to learn from some of the best instructors in the world and earn credentials from the world’s top universities, including the University of Michigan, Yale University, and Duke University. Professional Certificates from leading industry educators like Google and SAS will help students become job-ready with in-demand skills.

After Sept. 30, 2020, students will continue to have free access to Guided Projects — a hands-on learning experience that develops job-relevant skills like data analysis with Plotly and Python, app development in Android Studio with Java, and social media marketing with Canva. With an interactive experience, students can learn a new skill in under two hours with step-by-step guidance from a subject matter expert.

One thought on “Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) – Free access to Coursera

  1. It is a great initiative by Coursera to offer free courses to graduates and undergraduates. Students have a major problem of cash flow while studying and by making its courses free, Coursera has helped students in learning new skills without having any problem to arrange money for the courses.
