Most genealogists are also history lovers so I was interested to see that Yale University offers some of it’s courses including history subjects online free of charge. The course material is downloadable and the lectures are online on YouTube. No credits or certificates are awarded for completing these course, you simply work your way through the material, watch the videos and learn for the sheer joy of acquiring knowledge about a favourite subject.
OpenLearn is the U.K. Open University’s version of free online learning, again course material is easily downloaded and OpenLearn offers some interaction with other students.
Last, but no means least there is the 140 online genealogy courses offered freely by the FamilySearch team. Divided into countries and subjects there is sure to be something here that will expand your knowledge whether you are a beginner or more experienced researcher.
