These websites offer thousands of online courses for students and life-long learners alike. And while some of them offer fee-based courses or free courses with an option to get a certificate for a fee, you can also find many fully free courses as well.

It doesn’t matter if you choose to supplement your existing education or learn a new skill – these online education platforms can help you gain valuable knowledge, earn a certificate, complete a degree, or simply expand your horizons.
