Wouldn’t it be fun to tell people that you went to Harvard? Take a class online, and you can.
Oh, they’re free
Score. Dozens of classes are available through edX at no cost. Just make an account and you’re good to go. Note: A verified certificate of completion will cost you. Be prepared to pony up at least $99. Totally not necessary if you’re doing it to learn something new.
Classes are self-paced and generally run for six to 14 weeks. (Expect a few hours of lessons and assignments per week.) Challenge yourself to learn something new by the time fall rolls around!
