FYI. 2,000+ MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are getting underway this month, 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 July MOOCS. And below we’ve highlighted several courses that caught our eye.
