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.
