    Free and Low Cost On-Line Courses from Top Universities

    https://www.coursera.org

    I've enrolled in:

    Epidemics - the Dynamics of Infectious Diseases
    Aug 29, 2016 - Oct 30, 2016T The Pennsylvania State University

    Course is free. Certificate costs $49 BUT fee waived for self-identified students with limited financial resources.

    Somewhat complicated enrollment process to ensure academic integrity: typing sample, web-cam photo, web-cam photo ID card (eg Driver's License).

    Learned about this from:

    Coursera: courses from top universities

    I just completed "An Introduction to Population Health" from Manchester University through Coursera. I regret to state that I was not impressed with the course. I was simplistic and biased. Some of the information presented was questionable and alternative research was not cited. One example is a section to demonstrate how public policy can influence public health. The example used was the claim that increased taxes reduces cigarette smoking. Contrary to what was presented in the course, the research on this issue is conflicting and no firm conclusion can be reached from it. Cigarette smoking has declined as taxes increased but there are other actors that probably influenced the decline such as smoking prohibited in workplaces and public places, anti-smoking in the military, anti-smoking information, and a general concern with healthy lifestyle. In my opinion the course was heavily biased toward government intervention in public health even when there is little evidence that it is effective.

    On the plus side, although this course (and others). officially cost money. ($49 in this case), if you want a certificate, one can apply for "financial aid" to have the fee waived. I've had the fee waived for three courses. It appears that the decision to waive the fee is machine-done, but I don't know what algorithm is used.
