50 Free Online Certificate Courses Starting Soon (Including Intro to Philosophy)

A quick heads up: Several weeks back, we rolled out a handy list of Free Courses Granting Certificates from Great Universities. We started with 60 courses, and we’ve now added another 50. They all start in the near future (between November and January), and they mostly come from the two biggest providers of Massive Open Online Courses — Coursera and Udacity (which just landed $15 million in funding last week).

Above we’re featuring a clip promoting a course called Introduction to Philosophy. It comes courtesy of the University of Edinburgh, an institution first founded in 1583, that hopes to teach a timeless discipline in a new way. So far, Coursera and Udacity have only offered courses in science and technology  — in disciplines that yield rather quantifiable answers. Now it’s time to see how they can handle subjects where the questions and answers are more subtle. The free course begins on January 28, and any student who successfully completes the interactive course will receive “a certificate signed by the instructors.” Sign up here, and find a complete list of online certificate courses here.
