Free Courses at Open Yale


There are a variety of free university courses available online from distinguished universities such as Harvard, Carnegie Mellon, and Yale. These top universities offer free courses for a variety of reasons. Some offer free courses as a measurement tool for analyzing particular learning theories while others use the lectures to determine the popularity of distance learning. One commonality of university open courses is that they provide individuals with an opportunity to learn more.

Open Yale Courses provides a number of free courses. Although Open Yale does not offer certificates, credits, or degree options, Yale Summer Session offers a number of online courses with college credits. To learn more about that, visit Yale Summer Session at www.summer.yale.edu/.

Some of the courses offered at Open Yale are in:

• African American Studies
• Astronomy
• Biology
• Chemistry
• Economics
• English
• Environmental Studies
• Geology and Geophysics
• History
• Italian Language and Literature
• Political Science
• Psychology
• Religion
• Sociology
• Spanish and Portuguese

Participating in an Open Yale free course is simple. If you click on Introduction to Psychology (PSYC 110), for example, you are navigated to the course site, which provides a brief description of the course, Professor Paul Bloom’s bio, and access to video and audio taken from course lectures via YouTube or iTunes. You also have the option to download all course materials in a zip file. The course sessions are composed of twenty lectures presented by Professor Paul Bloom, special guest lecture by Professor Marvin Chun, special guest lecture by Professor Kelly Brownell, a midterm, and a final exam.

Requirements for participating in the Introduction to Psychology course are to complete exams, complete reading assignments and responses, write a book review, and serve as a possible subject for class experiments.

To learn more about the array of courses offered, visit Open Yale Courses at http://oyc.yale.edu/.

For those considering a long-term distance learning program, Distance Learning: Is it Right for You? will provide the basic knowledge you need to ease into your distance learning experience.
