Learn something new, from coding to marketing, with these free online courses

Whether it’s a love for education, the drive to succeed, or just genuine curiosity, the hunger for knowledge and learning is what keeps us moving forward. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or the money to take on a traditional course load, and with tuition costs on the rise, that won’t change anytime soon. So if you’re yearning to learn but don’t feel like going thousands of dollars into debt, check out our favorite free online courses from Udemy and take control of your curriculum.

If nothing on this list suits your fancy, you can also check out Coursera, Udacity, or edX for more options.
