UPDATE 08.14.2012: This week marks the launch of MOOC MOOC , and given the insane amount of content that's already been produced, we're going to hold off on updating this ongoing list o' links. You can join in here , learn more here or follow along here . We've been following the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) movement for a couple years now because we and our clients are all engaged in online learning at some level, be it totally online, flipped or hybrid, or just lecture capture for on-demand replay.

Your education doesn't have to stop once you leave school—freedom from the classroom just means you have more control over what you learn and when you learn it. We've put together a curriculum of some of the best free online classes available on the web this spring for our fourth term of Lifehacker U, our regularly-updating guide to improving your life with free, online college-level classes.

Whether you are looking for a master’s degree program, computer science classes, a K-12 curriculum, or GED study program, this list gives you a look at 50 websites that promise education for free. From databases that organize over 1,000,000 students throughout 16 universities, to a small library of documents for those interested in history, the opportunities for free online learning continue to expand as the Internet becomes a crucial component in education.
