Some of us have the hunger to learn more outside our academic learning requirements. Well, we can enroll ourselves into courses we like in different institutions, but apparently not without any cost. Courses of any sort will require decent amount of money, which is a major discouragement for many who are voluntarily want to learn.
For those, coursera.org is a decent solution.
The website provides hundreds free courses like Computer Science, Business, Mathematics, Biology, Social Sciences, Humanities, Medicine etc online. All from renowned professors from different reputed universities around the globe.
