..And can take advantage of amazon student prime? If so, I'm in!

EdX is quite respectable in the academic community, connecting to real top universities and courses taught by established professors in their fields, with the content FREE (although you may need to pay for a certificate of completion.

I highly recommend EdX, although FutureLearn is my favourite (www.futurelearn.com).

Or become a student, get a degree then pay for prime with your lovely wages from the job you actually like doing?

They all seem to be foreign Universities, so not sure how much weight any qualification gained would carry here. i.e. could the credits if any, be used towards qualifications at U.K. based institutions. If it is just being used for a bit of knowledge sound fine.

I know a bit about edx, currently doing 6.001x course from MIT there.
All courses are free to audit, i.e., access videos and materials; however if you want a certificate of accomplishment you would need to pay a fee and get a verified (with webcamera verification) digital certificate from the course provider. These fees vary from course to course. Some courses are self-paced and can be done at your convenience, while others have start and end dates, and thus you also have deadlines to submit your assignments.
Feel free to ask me anything else you'd like to know.;)

Excellent use of 3 commas in one sentence (sarcasm) I will listen to around 8 billion others advice on grammar or punctuation, before I bother with yours. Your welcome

Is there a way to filter to find all the free courses? Found one I was interested in and then discovered it was $500.. OUCH

This is a good service. I'm working my way through a Python course.

If you login to coursera website you can get free courses their too. Click on sample/Audit course and it's same material as paid version just no cert at the end. They have an apple and Android app which helps.

@Satan_Claws. I've taken this one. It was really cool, however it required sticking to a timeline as last time there were group projects and peer review. EdX does tend to have more structured courses that have a real-time bent. FutureLearn is better if you want to proceed at your own pace, as there's no written homework.

You may wish to check out FutureLearn. It also has international university affiliations but is sponsored by the Open University (so should be UK-friendly).

However, many universities are getting better at accepting certificates from international MOOCs as indication that a student has some brief background in a subject and is motivated to study on their own. However, please be sure that any time you pay for an online class it is being run by an accredited academic institution with real instructors, not some random guy offering an online class. Also a MOOC course is not the same as enrolling directly in a university class, as individual uni classes are more rigorous and have directly transferable credits. Everyone expects that Certificates of Participation from MOOCs have lighter requirements -- you just need to do the basics to qualify for one. These certificates might be helpful for students applying to uni (to show they are motivated and/or to test-drive topics that might be of interest), for people seeking personal/career development, and for life-long learners who just want to show off their mad MOOC skills. Most importantly, certificates help provide extra funding, so MOOCs can continue to supply their courses FOR FREE to anyone with stable Internet access anywhere in the world.

Yes, I'm a teacher. Does it show? :P

Thanks for the info. Shouldn't be a problem sticking to the schedule. Will probably do it on my tablet with headphones so the rest of the family can watch TV
