MongoDB University offers free online courses to teach you how to build and deploy apps on MongoDB which is the leading modern, general purpose database platform, designed to unleash the power of software and data for developers and the applications they build.

The online courses are free and run for 7 weeks with weekly re-recorded lesson videos, quizzes and graded exercises on a key MongoDB subject. Expect approximately 2 hours of lessons per week delivered in a series of 3 to 5 minute videos. You may watch these videos at your own pace during the week, in the order you choose.

Homework is assigned in each week and should take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours to complete. At the end of 7 weeks, there is a final exam in the form of an extended problem set. Homework assignments account for one half of your grade and the final exam for the other half. Quizzes don't count toward your grade; they are intended to help you check your own understanding of the course material.

Throughout the course, you may ask questions in the online discussion forums. Staff teaching assistants are always ready to help and other students regularly contribute answers.

On completion of a course, students get a certificate of completion from MongoDB, Inc. To receive a certificate of completion, you will need to achieve 65% on graded material.

Students can also opt to have tailored Private Training which is tailored to specific needs and provided by MongoDB Experts.

For $150 USD, students can take an exam to become certified either as a MongoDB Certified Developer Associate or a MongoDB Certified DBA Associate. These multiple-choice exams are taken online and are 90 minutes long. A MongoDB Certification Exam Study Guide is available for those who sign up for an exam.

Cons: Courses are scheduled at set dates and times
MongoDB University provides a comprehensive course list catering for all levels, beginner through to advanced. The courses are well-structured and taught by the creators of MongoDB themselves. The one downside is that learners have to stick to specific dates and times to follow the courses.
