Students, farmers, retailers and corporate bosses have been heavily united by the reliance on this one impossible tool: the internet. We’ve helped students deal with the oddities, failures and obstacles of online classes, and watched as course-loads changed and requirements grew.

Something I never expected to see? Free education from Ivy league schools.

29 universities are participating in online, non-profit mass online course-taking symposiums. Not just any school either. Schools that, not even a DECADE ago, had white-collar parents desperately bribing board members just to get their teens an interview for admission. Is the quality the same as in-person courses? No clue – but considering what they used to charge for their “pieces of paper,” it could be worth looking into.

Here are the top, FREE programs to receive an education from the so-called “exclusive” institutions. You can audit a course, or take the course to receive a certificate. If you don’t have time for the work, as usual, we can do it for you to make sure you get the credit, so that you can truly secure your future.

EdX: the emphasis is on science and math, but there are many obscure English, Ethics and Philosophy courses worth looking at if that’s not your interest. Berkeley’s Artificial Intelligence course may not be as boring as you think, but hey, it’s FREE so you can try any Ivy league course you want.

  • Duke
  • Wisconsin
