Free Online Education Courses for Adults

Posted by kelly-r on March 25, 2020

Have you ever wanted to educate yourself from an Ivy League school? Now is the time as these schools such as Yale and Harvard are offering a variety of free courses covering topics such as computer science, mathematics, business, education, humanities, art & design, engineering and more.

Yale University

Yale’s most popular class ever is available free online, and the topic is how to be happier in your daily life. In the spring of 2018, the Yale psychology professor Laurie Santos unveiled a new course, Psychology and the Good Life. The subject was happiness.

Santos’ course was a blend of abstract and concrete. It combined positive psychology with the real-life applications of behavioural science. It debunked popular notions of what makes people happy and helped students understand the habits they should build to lead truly happier, more fulfilled lives.

Course content includes

  • Misconceptions about happiness
  • Why our expectations are so bad
  • How we can overcome our biases
  • Stuff that really makes us happy
  • Putting strategies into practice

The course includes video lectures, optional readings, and “rewirement” activities to do each day to build happier habits. Research suggests that if you do these rewirements as prescribed, you should get a boost in your mood and overall well-being.
