Top Ten Online Learning Sites to Supplement Your Classroom Learning

If you are already overwhelmed with your college course-load, this will probably add too much to your already full plate. But if you have some free time or looking to learn a new skill, you should consider taking an online class from one of the countless Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) sites. The explosion in online learning sites have made it incredibly easy for the average person to take college-level classes without spending too much money or going back to college. Taking online classes are also beneficial to college students as it not only allows them to explore other areas of interest outside the classroom, students can also use online classes to supplement their classroom learning. One of the benefits and selling point of online classes is the convenience; and in today's ever changing world, it is paramount to become a life-long learner and taking online classes not only helps to refresh your skills, you can also learn several other valuable skills from computer programming to cooking.

Here is 10 of Our Favorite Online Learning Sites:

Khan Academy — Khan Academy is one of my favorite online learning sites, offering free learning resources for all ages on many subjects. Students can watch lecture videos on many subjects ranging from Math to Art History and GMAT or MCAT. Students can also practice their skills after watching the video lectures and track their progress.

Cousera — Coursera is a learning site offering courses from over top 100 partner universities from around the world, — with options for paid verified certificates and specializations.

edX — The edX site offers free lectures from top universities, colleges and schools from around the world, including MIT and Harvard. Many of the edX courses offer paid verified certificates.

NovoEd — NovoEd offers a range of mostly free “courses from thought leaders and distinguished professors from top universities,” and makes it possible for today’s participants to be tomorrow’s mentors in future courses.

Udemy — Udemy is another great learning site that hosts mostly paid video tutorials in a wide range of general topics including personal development, design, marketing, lifestyle, photography, software, health, music, language, and more.

MIT Video — MIT is one of the first elite colleges to offer free college lectures online. So it is not surprising that it has over 12,000 lecture/talk videos on several subjects including math, architecture and planning, arts, chemistry, biological engineering, robotics, humanities and social sciences, physics and more.

Stanford Online — Stanford Online classes offers a collection of free courses in a wide array of topics that includes human rights, language, writing, economics, statistics, physics, engineering, software, chemistry, business, entrepreneurship, and more.

Harvard Extension School: Open Learning Initiative — Harvard’s Open Learning Initiative offers a selection of free video lectures (taken from the edX selection) for the general public that covers a range of topics, including, Arts, History, Math, Statistics, Computer Science, and more.

Pluralsight — Pluralsight offers paid video lectures for individuals, businesses and institutions that covers IT admin, programming, Web development, data visualization — as well as game design, 3D animation, and video editing through a partnership with Digital-Tutors.com, and additional software coding lessons through Codeschool.com. Although a Microsoft BizSpark student membership and your college email address, you can receive a one-year membership to Pluralsight.

Youtube — Besides watching funny cat videos and the latest dance craze, Youtube is probably one of the best online learning platforms which is full of instructional videos on wide range of topics, although it is not as structured and curated as the aforementioned sites.
