More people are now under lockdown to protect against COVID-19 than were alive during World War II. And of the 2.9 billion people under quarantine to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, millions are enrolling in online courses like The Science of Well-Being at learning sites like Coursera and edX.

There are many class offerings, but below are the 23 most popular Coursera courses around the world right now, according to the company.

The list includes individual courses as well as Specializations and professional certificate programs, which represent a series of related courses bundled together to help students master a specific skill or interrelated concepts.

Rather than offer courses that are free to audit with a one-time fee to enroll, Specializations and professional certificate programs typically offer a free week-long trial and are billed monthly afterward. Since they contain multiple courses, they can take anywhere from a few months to more than a year to complete. So, the faster you complete each program, the more money you'll save.

If you're looking to take just one course included in a Specialization, you can usually do that too. And, if you expect to spend more than $399 on your months-long program, consider the Coursera Plus annual subscription — just make sure your courses are included in the 90% of classes it gives you access to.
