There are no degrees, no fees, and no admissions. With no obligations and no strings attached, open courseware provides free, high-quality education to anyone who wants to learn.
The Open Education Database (OEDb) connects learners to thousands of free online classes. Many of these are offered by leaders in the educational community, such as UC Berkeley, MIT, and Yale University. For example, without leaving home or paying a dime in tuition, students can take a thermodynamics course from the University of Notre Dame or a statistics course from Princeton ñ just two of the 4,000 (and counting) free courses listed in the database. Students who don’t have time for full courses can choose from 2,500+ video and audio lectures or 1,200+ text articles.
