Open Culture is an innovative education model that brings classes from the top international schools to your computer for free. The Open Culture platform brings together classes from Berkeley- and Harvard-caliber schools, so that you can become knowledgable on just about any topic. The only drawback to not shelling out the thousands of dollars to be enrolled and taking classes at a prestigious university is that you will not receive any grades or accreditation.
The prospect of learning about the fundamentals of Chemistry, 18th century French literature or International Relations is a pretty exciting one when the barrier to entry -- the cost -- has been completely removed.
Open Culture is an innovative platform for connecting people who are hungry to learn, but do not want to accumulate a lifetime's worth of debt.
