Free top-tier higher education at your doorstep

Have some spare time and miss taking classes? Coursera offers free top tier education from the comfort of your own home.

Launched only in April 2012, Coursera is a revolutionary education start-up that currently offers 200 courses from 33 top-tier universities including Stanford, Princeton, Columbia, UPenn, UMich and UCs.Image When you take a Coursera class, you will watch lectures taught by world-class professors online and join a community of students who are taking the class alongside you. Classes are interactive, homework is given, deadlines are provided, discussion rooms are available to discuss course topics with your peers, and finally, if you take the optional final assessment and receive a passing score, you will be awarded a certificate signed by the instructor that states the successful completion of the course.

This is a great way for recent graduates to continue broadening their skill set while working full time.
