Discussion > TIP : Free online courses (tax payer funded green propaganda)

Tip 0. Free usually means Not Free cos you pay for it in your taxes and/or in certificate charges

Tip 1. (Via the MSE weekly Email)
800 short online courses completely free via its Future Learn and Open Learn schemes.
- Of course the usual Green propaganda is strongly represented and no other viewpoints **

Future Learn includes 62 free courses from many universities, time set program

Open Learn is 750 other free short courses from the OU - no time limit

i list below a few examples of the Green courses withon the 800 mostly normal courses
