Academic Earth curates links to free online courses from some of the world’s top universities. The site also features an ongoing series of original videos from MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale which can be shared by the Academic Earth community. The platform doesn’t host the courses itself, but sends the user directly to the course publisher. The course format and any tools therefore depend on the institution providing the course. The site also provides guides to online degree programs with a search tool to find accredited online college courses by subject area and degree level.
