World's Largest One Stop Shopping for Free Online Courses!

OpenYale courses.

Looking for free, open source learning materials about any subject, from top experts in the world? I used to think that MIT's OpenCourseWare and Yale's OpenYale courses were a "one stop shopping" source for this, until I came across this stunning, worldwide, multi-lingual collection of course materials.

I invite you to explore this collection of free learning materials, including course syllabi, exams and study guides in a wide array of subjects, from the US, the UK, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, get the idea.

Many thanks to Junqiang Zhou from Zhejiang Normal University for bringing this to my attention! {Source.}
