Best Online CoursesBest-of-breed online courses
I' m back with an up to date listing of the best free online courses of all times. Last July the first Top 50 ranking was released by Classic Centrally. University and course provider have added a few thousand new courses since then and classes cent ral user have posted a thousand new ratings.
There are now over 8,000 open online courses at around 750 colleges and universities around the globe. That can be discouraging for the million of students around the globe who have never attended an online course before. That' s why we have compiled a top 50 online courses of all time, built on the ratings of Class Central customers in their millions.
By offering a small but well-checked course schedule, we do not expect new students to be overburdened when they attend online courses. Reviewing will help new students find out if a course is right for them and whether they will have a great first time. We have posted hundreds of thousand user feedback and we have been able to rank these courses by Bayes' averages.
Then, we took out all courses with less than 20 ratings (the low barrier will help smaller vendors competing in quality) and courses where we had our doubt if they would be available again. The Top 50 lists are periodically up-dated as new courses are added and we get new ratings.
Participants will be notified when we refresh the top 50 course lists. If you think that a course you have attended deserves to be on this listing but is not, find the course on Class Central and give it a rating for the course. Consider courses like How To Learning, Harvard's CS50x, ModPo and Class Central's best online course of 2016 - A1 -18 in your schoolroom, Now!

Top 50 also includes courses by celebrities such as The Science of the Solar System by Mike Brown (AKA "Plutokiller") and Functional Programming Principles in Scala by Martin Odersky (the author of Scala). This is a short abstract of the Top 50 list: Corsera is the top course supplier with 28 courses in the Top 50 and eduX with 9 courses in second place; Stanford and MIT lead the top four courses each, and the University of Cape Town has three courses in the Top 50 - two on FutureLearn and one on Coursera; Barbara Oakley and Terry Sejnowski, the lecturers of the world's most beloved online courses, have two courses in the Top 50.
