More About Free College-Level Classes and Lectures

Take Music Theory from Berklee College of Music.

Or Introduction to Finance from the University of Michigan.

Or use one of any other 10,000 free, open education courses or resources available at Open Education Database.

I know what you’re thinking: “Free college-level classes?  They don’t exist…right?”


Open Education Database (OEDd) is “is the most comprehensive collection of online college rankings and free courses anywhere online.”  OEDd’s comprehensive web site allows “learners of all levels to explore their interests and prepare for exciting new careers, build on existing foundations of education and experience, or just satisfy a craving to learn something completely new.”

OEDd has been operating since 2006 and continues to be a leader in online education resources.

In addition, Audible has started to advertise its GreatCourses collection, which are “critically acclaimed audio lectures to enrich and inspire” created by “hundreds of lectures from top-tier university professors.”

So now there’s no excuse to not expand your educational horizons.  Choose from any of the thousands of college-level courses or lectures from dozens of the world’s leading universities. 

There is, literally, a course or lecture for everyone of all background and interests.
