65 MOOCs/Certificate Courses Getting Started in January

January — it’s a time for New Year’s resolutions and for university courses to get started again. It’s happening on campuses. And it’s happening online. Right now, the biggest batch of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are getting underway: 65 courses in total, across seven different online platforms. Below, we’ve highlighted a sampling of courses, but you can scan through the complete list of January courses right here, and keep tabs on all future MOOCs here. Please keep in mind that many MOOCs offer “Certificates” or “Statements of Accomplishment.” The key on this page indicates the kind of credential offered by each course. It goes without saying that these courses are free. The video above introduces the course The Modern World: Global History Since 1760.
