A quick note: MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) aren’t getting the same media hype that they got a year ago. But they’re still going strong. This month, roughly 220 MOOCS will be getting underway. Given some free time (something that’s in short supply these days), I might enroll in the courses I’ve listed below. But maybe you’ve got a taste for something else. So visit our complete list of February MOOCS and see what piques your interest. Our list was assembled with the kind help of Class-Central.com, who has also published a list of the 10 most popular MOOCs of the month.
