Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs are free to access short courses delivered online, they have no entry requirements so are open to everyone. They are an engaging and accessible way of distance learning produced by some of the top Universities and Companies around the world. They enable whoever signs up to learn new skills or bridge gaps in their knowledge as well as offering an excellent opportunity to continue to think and engage with academia. Below are some links to free MOOCs:

Whilst all the content is free there are some courses which require a fee to receive a certificate at the end – this is not compulsory.
