The web's biggest portal where free online courses are being listed has just added another 100 courses aimed users from various industries and disciplines.
New York (PRWEB) February 10, 2013
SiteTrail media, the digital publishing giant, added a new subsidiary, Myfreecoursesonline.com. The portal is aimed at introducing learners to education made available through open access schemes from top establishments.
Statistically, the main contributors of free online courses on the web include The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), UCT Berkeley, London School of Economics (LSE), the Khan academy and Harvard. The main value these universities and institutions derive from this form of sharing is publicity and engagement of future students, whereas currently the web has about 5 major portals connecting learners to content made available directly by universities for the purpose of free learning, these portals include Myfreecoursesonline, Corsera, Alison and Openculture. Our portal just went ahead and listed over 100 of the best new courses available – something users can benefit from with immediate effect.
The real value to learners in accessing courses via Myfreecoursesonline is that content are not sponsored by a specific institution but through a random add server, Google. This means that course recommendations unbiased and aimed at providing learners with a variety of options rather than focussing on specific sources.
Here is a sneak preview of popular course sections learners can access:
English classes online:
This is a section with useful information for both TEFL and ESL enthusiasts and connects learners with over 30 free English language classes from providers around the world. Hours of video training is available and people with different learning styles can benefit from this.

In addition there are specialist research areas such as artificial intelligence, systems engineering and app development. This section is an example of how the portal caters for all levels from beginner through advanced.
With so many generic skills overlapping between various sectors, work based learning is now benefiting from continuous education options whereby employed persons can access elective units for the purpose of self-improvement. Few people have the time to visit a physical premises for the purpose of education one in employment and that is where the online learning difference provides the perfect solution.
The SiteTrail editor had this message for their readers: “As we see more established universities embrace an open culture by sharing free courses and resources with people around the world, there is the need for an integrated portal where learners can access the best of what is available. Our number one aim is to provide users with useful content and open new avenues to people, as a result of new learning. Users seeking accredited qualifications can also contact the establishment providers of courses directly for further arrangements.”
