Title: Saylor.org: Free Education
Url: https://www.saylor.org/
Publisher: The Saylor Foundation
Description: The tag line of the Saylor website is "Harnessing Technology to Make Education Free." The site is the brainchild of MIT graduate and founder of MicroStrategy, Michael Saylor. Visitors will find that this online education resource is a little different than some other websites that offer free online courses. Although Saylor.org does not grant degrees, students can download a certificate of completion for successfully passing the exam at the end of each course. The setup of the courses offers a more structured approach for those lifelong learners out there, and can even provide a feel for the content of an undergraduate course to students considering or curious about college. There are thirteen areas of study that visitors can choose to explore, including STEM subjects such as Computer Science, Chemistry, and Mechanical Engineering. Each course is peer-reviewed, and visitors can find a list of the faculty from universities and colleges around the world that author the courses can be found in the About Us section, under the Our Trustee & Team link.
