For those who haven't heard of it, coursera is a new start-up that has partnered with many major universities (American, at least)to offer free courses on a wide variety of subjects. Most of these are IT-type courses, but there are also some History, Literature courses, Health Sciences, Genetics, Environmental, and even Music subjects (I'm signed up to put my guitar to use!) some courses give you a certificate for a free or a small fee. There are students using these classes all over the world. Are you one of them, and do you like what they offer? If you don't use them, do you think you might try them out?

Yes I am using Coursera together with other MOOC sites such as Udacity, EdX. I start with the Introduction to... subjects to refresh my memory or learn something new. My favorite in terms of variety so far is the MIT OCW but the course materials are not often complete.
