    Adding to the list and bumping to the top. Perhaps this could finally be made a sticky?

    Yale University

    This fall, Yale University also started offering free taped video lectures online. At this point, they only have 7 classes available, but they are planning on adding more: Open Yale University courses

    Also, I know a few people posted some of these member universities, but the Open Courseware Consortium is a clearinghouse for dozens of free courses from the University of Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins, UMass, Tufts, and quite a few overseas schools.

    If one has iTunes software, many schools are posting audio lectures and some video lectures for free. Open iTunes and go to iTunes U.

    Are all of these free courses non-credit? Not that it matters but it would be interesting if a few were actually worth credit. The MIT courses look very interesting. If you could take a few of those and get a certificate for them you could essentially use them towards some of the degrees that accept 40 hour training courses for elective credits. Something to think about.

    With the exception of the FEMA courses, they are non-credit. That is why they are free. Of course, one could take the courses, and use that knowledge to test for credit, such as CLEP, DANTES, GRE and PLA, for example.

    The Michigan Center for Public Health and University of Michigan School of Public Health offer numerous free online short courses. Certificates of completion are available, according to this FAQ.

    Please note that the FAQ link for University of Michigan is incorrect. It should be at this URL.

    Hi folks. If someone hasn't posted this information already I apologize but the Center for Homeland Defense and Security has a few online courses in homeland security related topics for free. However, there's a catch. You have to be working in the industry or a related field, which by the way can be just about anything from law enforcement, IT security, or private security.
