Upgrade Your Skills With Free University Courses
Whatever else you do in 2021, please make time to upgrade your skills. The decade that lies ahead is going to be our most disrupted yet, and we are all going to need to improve our skills. Over the past few years, more and more universities have made courses available online for free. These are typically in the form of videos of the lectures, sometimes accompanied by course notes and readings. There's no catch. They're genuinely free. Obviously, you don't get to interact with the professors, you don't tutorials, you don't get assessed, and you don't get a certificate to prove you know the work.
We will keep an updated list of free online courses here. Feel free to add more in the comments. OpenCulture's list of 1,500 free university courses: https://www.openculture.com/freeonlinecourses
