6. MIT's OpenCourseWare - Free College Courses from MIT

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) offers many of its college courses online - for free to anyone interested in self-paced learning. You do not earn credits for the courses you take but you will learn a lot and get to see if you are made of "MIT stuff!"

Each course includes content, reading lists, homework, lecture notes, exams, and more.

MIT encourages students who take advantage of the free courses to consider making a small donation (as little as $5.00). The plea is low-key and barely visible on their website and is not necessary to take a course.
