Future Learn

Future Learn is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) platform based in the UK. It is owned by The Open University and offers a variety of free online short courses and degrees taught by universities from Europe, South and North America, Australia and New Zealand, and Asia. Future Learn offers courses from many fields of knowledge such as coding, foreign languages, health, mathematics, psychology and creative arts.

Evaluation: Future Learn’s courses cover practically all areas of knowledge and all content is open and free. Each course has a comments section where it is possible to ask questions and interact with other people taking the same course. Even though you have to complete the classes and tasks within a deadline, you can watch the video-classes whenever you want and do the exercises at you own pace. The fact that you can obtain an official certificate from internationally renowned universities from all over the world is an advantage, although you must pay for this option

Cost: Free for the duration of the course + 14 days (paid upgrade and an unlimited version available)
