What is a MOOC you may ask? It stands for Massive Open Online Course and these are offered by universities all over the world. AND THEY ARE FREE!
I have done ones from USA, Australia and UK. There are a variety of providers Coursera is my favourite for their format and forums but I have also done courses with Udemy and FutureLearn.
The subjects can be absolutely anything arts, sciences, business and professional development. I have done mostly history courses. This autumn :-
- The Battle of Agincourt – University of Southampton
- Ancient Superpowers – University of Liverpool
- Ancient Egypt in 6 objects – University of Manchester
In past years I have done Shakespeare, Richard III, Forensic Science, French Revolution, Archaeology. There is an amazing amount of choice. I really recommend them for a taster in your favourite subject
