10. Which Of The Following Websites Provides Free Learning Content And Apps For Online Courses?
Over the course of the past few years, a number of companies have stepped up to help give educational material for online courses to students without having to purchase them from publishers or university libraries. The lessons often start out as simple as teaching business principles to software developers or a biological strategy to cat moms. These “iStartups” can graduate to offering free content for those interested in a more formal degree. Below are a few examples, all from Co.Create’s new list of Online Courses That Are Better Than The Ones You’re Taking.

Engineering Mudders – Just because you didn’t get a scholarship to attend an engineering school doesn’t mean you can’t learn about the processes and hows of the folks in the business.

Mumblecotches for Virtual Education
J2Edition – Reassuringly, a majority of online courses are supposed to be educational. We can all agree with that. However, when you walk into a typical classroom, you are surrounded by materials that are disorganized and forced to drag their feet through narrative in order to remain relatively engaged. J2Edition provides all of its material via PowerPoint, animations, and videos. It’s good stuff.
Lump My Rigging Level Up – This is actually one of the two courses on The New Education Experts list of Online Courses Better Than The Ones You’re Taking.
