What is believed to be the most popular online course of all time is approaching 3.5 million students. Here’s how you can enroll for free.
The Science of Well Being
Yale University put “The Science of Well Being” – the most popular course in Yale’s 320-year history – online for free starting in 2018.
The Science of Well-Being is a 10-week online course created by and taught by Professor Laurie Santos. Yale added it to its roster of free online classes on Coursera in 2018 and since then, more than 3.4 million students have enrolled. The course is completely free, unless you want to have your assignments graded and get a certificate, which is $49. You can add that option later if you want.
The course includes videos, reading assignments, and a discussion forum where you can interact with other students or ask a question from the professor.
