Guest Post on Free College and University Courses Online..:

An increasing number of colleges and universities have begun providing free and open educational resources for self-learners around the world. Some schools, such as Yale, Carnegie Mellon, and The Open University, offer entire courses. You don't get college credit or a degree when you complete a course, but you do get the opportunity to enrich your life with knowledge. Here are a few of the 20 free online courses you can try today:
