    "There are a lot of new free education platforms out there today and so it can be hard to really find a great option that truly provides you with world class education courses. With EdX you don't have to worry about that because the courses are provided by world class accredited universities such as MIT and Harvard. Another great thing about EdX apart from other similar websites out their offering free online college classes is that a lot of their courses are self paced so you can work on your course work in between work and other things at your own pace."
