The digital leaders of higher education often spend several months developing new video courses for students, professionals, and lifelong learners.

This often results in high quality online courses that also enable learners to take additional exams and get certificates.

In general, learning with these courses is completely free. Only the optional certificates require payment of a fee. (Note: Sometimes the free version is hidden behind a small Audit button during the registration process!)

The following list contains a selection of interesting courses that start in August.

Courses are from universities in the U.S., Britain, Germany, Australia, South Africa and the Netherlands.
