About Courses

AcademiaCentral offers a series of courses, certificate program and other educational content as its part of Massive Online Open Courses initiative. These courses, certificate programs and other offerings belong to partner universities, institutions and/or organizations. AcademiaCentral does not control the content for the MOOCs. In some courses, partner institutions may offer a certificate, credit for free or a fee. This is called verified track in MOOCs. Some benefits of the verified tracks may include: 

  • Unlimited Course Access: Learn at your own pace, and access materials anytime to brush up on what you've learned.

  • Graded Assignments: Build your skills through graded assignments and projects.

  • Easily Sharable: Add the certificate to your CV or resume, or post it directly on LinkedIn.

  • Support our Mission: AcademiaCentral MOOC and academic partners relies on verified certificates to help fund affordable education to everyone globally.
