The number of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is growing rapidly and it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of available courses as well as their starting dates. Class Central is a site that attempts to alleviate this problem by cataloging available courses and offering a search engine to help you find what you’re looking for. You can filter courses by those that have just been announced, those starting soon, those in progress, those that are already completed, as well as by whether they are self paced; the latter being especially convenient for those who don’t have a lot of spare time. Obviously, keeping track of every possible online class is a complicated task as more individuals start creating their own courses through online learning platforms like Udemy, but Class Central does a good job of tracking the largest online course providers most of which offer courses taught by faculty members at top universities. We will continue to highlight individual courses that we think merit special attention, but this is a good place to start your online education search.
