55 MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) for the Dog Days of Summer

At least here in the Unit­ed States, we’re enter­ing the Dog Days of Sum­mer. In New York, it’s expect­ed to hit 92 degrees today. That’s hot, but not near­ly as bad as the tem­per­a­tures in St. Louis (95), Phoenix (103) and Las Vegas (107). It’s time, my friends, to let Moth­er Nature declare vic­to­ry (even if we’ve giv­en her an arti­fi­cial hand) and find ways to stay cool and pro­duc­tive at the same time. Here’s one option to con­sid­er: Even though most col­lege stu­dents have gone home for the sum­mer, there are 55 MOOCs (Mas­sive Open Online Cours­es) start­ing between today and August 31, plus anoth­er 40 launch­ing in Sep­tem­ber. They’re spon­sored by some of the world’s lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties and cul­tur­al insti­tu­tions; they’re all free; and many offer cer­tifi­cates if stu­dents suc­cess­ful­ly com­plete their cours­es. Below, we’ve high­light­ed sev­er­al cours­es that speak to our inter­est in the lib­er­al arts. You can find the course that speaks to you by vis­it­ing our reg­u­lar­ly-updat­ed page: 500 Free MOOCs from Great Uni­ver­si­ties.
