EdX, a popular online learning platform and nonprofit founded by Harvard and MIT, aims to democratize learning by "removing the barriers of cost, location, and access."

The site's over 2,500 online courses are free to audit, and edX counts many of the world's top universities — including Berkeley, MIT, Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton, Georgia Tech, and the University of Chicago — among its participating institutions. Courses cover virtually every topic and range from its MicroMasters programs to skills you'd need to gain before changing fields and starting new hobbies. 

Of the site's course catalog, about 145 are Harvard online courses that are free to audit. Harvard's edX courses cover everything from public health and history to the science of cooking, computer programming, and poetry.

You can audit edX's classes for free, but you can opt to pay $50-$200 for a course. Paid users get access to graded assignments, a certificate that you can add to your CV, resume, and LinkedIn profile, and unlimited course access (even after the course ends). Paid and free users get access to discussion forums, videos, readings, and ungraded practice problems.

Below, check out 31 of the most interesting Harvard courses available to audit online for free. The descriptions are provided by edX.
