500 Free Online Courses

ALISON is doing something very simple but very significant: providing a free platform and a free package of resources which enable anyone, anywhere, anytime to build up, or brush up, on the knowledge or skills they want. They provide over 500 high-quality, certified, multimedia courses, free to individual learners.

They want to do this because they believe education is a basic right for everyone, no matter where in the world they live. They are able to do it because major changes in learning, education and the Internet make it possible. Whatever you see, is free, to you as an individual learner. Simply find the course you want, sign up or sign in, then study and get assessed at your own pace.  Basic categories from the ALISON website are listed below.
