The university, which pioneered massive open online courses, unveils two new homegrown software platforms to host the courses.
Fall quarter's free online courses cover a wide range of fields including computer science, mathematics, linguistics, science writing, sociology and education. Sixteen courses and two new platforms for interactive learning will highlight Stanford's free online offerings this fall, with more to follow during winter and spring quarters.
From cryptography to science writing, technology entrepreneurship, finance and a crash course in creativity, the courses are open to anyone with a computer, anywhere. As the number of Stanford online courses has grown, so too has the range of fields, which now include computer science, mathematics, linguistics, science writing, sociology and education.
Stanford is unique among universities in that it is offering its online courses on more than one platform. Also notable is a team-based course, Technology Entrepreneurship, taught by Chuck Eesley, assistant professor of management science and engineering; the course garnered 37,000 students when it first appeared last spring. The most widely available online learning platform, Coursera, will host nine Stanford courses this quarter, among them a new course, Writing in the Sciences, taught by epidemiologist Kristin Sainani, as well as Scott Klemmer's Human-Computer Interaction, which last spring enrolled around 29,000 students.
Students interested in registering should go to the course websites listed below or to the Stanford Online website, where updates will be available as new courses appear.
This is a list of free online graphic design courses offered by the best colleges and universities of the world.
The design courses in this list are categorized into three sections, one for students and beginners, one for intermediate level users and beginning professionals and the last one is, of course, for the seasoned pros.
Each course in this list is a MOOC (massive open online course) by a highly respected university. By the way, if you are looking for a bachelors or masters degree program, you should check out my guide for an online graphic design degree. However, the course content, forum, lectures and all the learning material is provided free. So, keeping that in mind, I’m starting with the art related courses that lay the foundation, and then we move towards the scientific parts of designing. This course will provide you with the knowledge needed to start recognizing the role of design in today’s world, and to start making better design decisions in your own life. This course is offered by Canva, a free service for designing social media banners and similar graphics. This course will teach foundational graphic design principles (fonts, colors, images, backgrounds, and layouts) and how to apply them. It’s easy enough to pick up Photoshop and mess around with it for a bit, but if you want to really get things done, you need a few essential tips.
This course is optimized for high school students but, anyone who is beginning to take interest in arts and design, can take this course. Art Fundamentals will address basic art and design skills in drawing and composition, principles of two-dimensional and human figure drawing. We concluded the previous segment with art based course, we begin this segment with an art based course.


The course content is fairly easy to understand but it does require you to be already familiar with common design concepts, and this is the reason it is being added in this category otherwise I would have placed in the beginner section. Even though we have covered a couple design thinking courses above, this is a little different. In this course, students will master the tools necessary to generate new ideas and quickly transform those concepts into viable new products and services. Excellent user experience design should consider factors such as human’s demand, ability and cultural background thoroughly. An overview of the many forms of digital arts, this course encourages students in a collaborative fashion to identify and address problems in the cultural and urban environment. Would you like to freshen up your programming skills but you are put off by high tuition fees? Pretigious universities like our own University of Toronto offer free online technology courses. This means some great online learning opportinities for IT workers looking to upgrade their skills and qualifications. Another issue is that sometimes the course materials are available online for free but there is a fee if you want to take exams, receive grades and get credits. With the edX intiative from Harvard and MIT, you can earn a certificate of completion for an online course offered by Harvard, MIT or UC Berkeley. Coursera offers online courses from the top universities in the world for anyone to take, for free.
We hope to give everyone access to the world-class education that has so far been available only to a select few. Intensive Introduction to Computer Science – An introduction to computer science  include algorithms, software development, architecture of computers, computer systems (programming languages, compilers, operating systems, and databases).
Founder: Sebastian Thrun, former Stanford professor and founding head of Google’s advanced-research X Lab.
Mission: Thrum founded Udacity to spark a teaching revolution in which the world’s best instructors conduct highly interactive online classes that let them reach 100,000 students simultaneously and globally. Cost: Taking the courses is free but you can optionally certify your skills online or in a Udacity testing center, for a fee.
In Online University for the Masses, Margaret Wente writes, “A certificate of completion from Coursera or edX (available for a small fee) is not the same as a degree from MIT. At Stafflink we find that our clients are most concerned with how job candidates have actually used technology skills in real-life projects and on-the-job experience. Please leave a comment to tell us about your experience with online education and getting a job. Each has its own distinct features and capabilities, among them video lectures, discussion forums, peer assessment, problem sets, quizzes and team projects. It is hosted on another new platform, Venture Lab, developed by Stanford faculty member Amin Saberi specifically for classes in which students work in teams. Understand theoretical foundations and practical techniques, whether your are a manager, entrepreneur, designer or student.


In addition to learning basic design concepts such as affordances and signifiers, you will also gain practice in observing and applying design principles. Naturally they plug-in some of their own promotions in the course but over all, the course is an ideal resource for anyone who does not have a design background and wants to take on graphic designing. This is a nice little course if you are new to Photoshop but you’ll have to register. The course marries theory and practice, as both are valuable in improving design performance. Those were designed for absolute beginners but this one is designed for a little advanced users.
User-centered design is not only a requirement for designers, but also a professional quality of product managers and developers.
This courses focuses on criticism, intellectual debates on what design is, how we are creating it and how should it rather be created.
I will try to keep this list up-to-date and keep adding the new courses and removing the outdated courses.
In fact, if you demonstrate mastery in a course you can get a certificate from a course offered by Harvard, MIT or UC Berkeley right now for free! In only six months Coursera has enabled 650,000 students from 190 countries to gain access to 43 different university courses.
We want to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.
You can also get free courses through Coursera from Stanford, Princton and John Hopkins universities to name a few. The founders are currently working to include additional universities while maintaining the high level of quality that has already been established in their current course offerings. Earning a certificate from a free online course can’t be dismissed as  substandard or “alternative” in any real sense when these courses are taught by  some of the most celebrated academics in the world. There are so many options for free online training that I didn’t even mention in this post because I was focusing on universities. This free online course will help you get under the skin of such brands, and ask how and why they become so powerful. They’re already figuring out ways to connect students with job opportunities that are appropriate for their skills. With job candidates coming with degrees from universities all over the world, it’s difficult to compare the relative value of those credentials.
So the real value of online technology training is that you can keep your skills up-to-date on you own schedule for free.
