Preply
Edtech startup Preply, which has built an online marketplace for finding and booking private tutors for a range of subjects, has closed a $1.3 million seed round. It supports booking of both in-person lessons in a chosen location and also remote tutoring, via a video chat.
Open Courseware Consortium
The Open Courseware Consortium sets a new benchmark for online education and offers a peek at the potential power of the Internet. It is a vast network of hundreds of institutions worldwide, with courses in 20 languages, and all of it is free of charge. Its members include MIT, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Tufts University and many others.
There are dozens of subjects available, with admirable attention paid to studies in science, engineering and technology. For those reasons, Open Courseware takes a deserved place near the top of our list.
Carnegie Mellon University’s Open Learning Initiative
A few of the names that are conspicuously absent from the Open Courseware Consortium have established their own online programs. Stay tuned for three in our list, starting with Carnegie Mellon’s Open Learning Initiative. Their online course list is short, but heavy on the sciences, math and engineering.
Open Yale Courses
Yale offers dozens of courses in topics ranging from Faulkner to astrophysics.
Stanford on iTunes U
Stanford has put free courses on iTunes. (iTunes is available for free download on most devices, Apple or otherwise.) As you might have guessed from the platform Stanford chose, the course list emphasizes programming apps for Apple. There is also a variety of courses in subjects such as astrobiology, law, energy and writing.
The Open University
The UK-based Open University offers more than 600 courses with training from novice to advanced in 250 qualifications. Subjects include computing, technology, math and sciences among others.
Udemy
Dynamic educators from renowned universities provide free online courses through Udemy. The offerings are light on engineering and technology, but there may be subjects of interest to small business owners. And who wouldn’t benefit from a deeper reading of Dostoyevsky? The course subjects include literature, history, economics, social and political sciences, business management and others.
Khan Academy
Khan Academy has provided more than 3200 videos that famously make it easy to learn tough concepts. The offerings are heavy on math and science, including computer science. Courses are at the Kindergarten through 12th-grade level.
Academic Earth
Academic Earth rounds up online courses from accredited universities and provides them free of charge. A reading of the first and second-to-the- last subjects might interest E4C members: They are Art & Architecture and Technology & Innovation.
Wikiversity
Wikiversity is a collaborative online education project powered by professionals, students and anyone who wants to contribute. This project also hints at the awesome potential of the Internet, and with time it may become one of the Internet’s great resources. Now, some of the courses are works in progress, but the site has a pedigree as a member of Wikipedia’s family.

Founded 2013. Overview Preply is a global marketplace for tutoring that helps students find qualified in-person and online teachers of a variety of different subjects such as foreign languages, math, biology, or music.
