Basically, these courses are designed to help you bolster your skills, learn something new, and basically improve your life. From EdX to Coursera, there is no shortage of places to tackle some new ideas and skills you’ve been putting off. Best of all, they’re all free and easy to take!

    May I recommend another series of courses offered by Coursera called Foundations of Teaching for Learning? It has already started, but there are eight courses and one or more of them might be of interest to teachers.
