1,000+ MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) Getting Started in October: Enroll Today

In many parts of the world, the school year is now officially in session. For kids. And for you. In October, 1,000+ MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) will be getting underway, giving you the chance to take free courses from top flight universities. With the help of Class Central, we've pulled together a complete list of October MOOCS. And below we've highlighted several courses that piqued our interest, including Buddhism and Modern Psychology taught by bestselling author Robert Wright (Why Buddhism Is True), and Effective Altruism (see video above) presented by eminent philosopher Peter Singer.

Here's one tip to keep in mind: If you want to take a course for free, select the "Full Course, No Certificate" or "Audit" option when you enroll. If you would like an official certificate documenting that you have successfully completed the course, you will need to pay a fee.
