Like many Ivy League universities, Princeton offers massive open online courses (MOOCs) through online education providers such as Coursera and edX. Students from all over the world can access top-notch courses without some of the most prohibitive barriers (location, cost), while educators get to expand the scope of their impact on students.

Through Princeton's online offerings, students can learn about everything from the basics of Bitcoin to the psychology behind Buddhism.

But, unlike many other prestigious schools, Princeton does not offer an optional certificate of completion, such as Yale's science of happiness course or Harvard's CS50 computer science series. All Princeton courses are entirely free — there's no paywall for certain features, but you also can't pay for certification to add to your resume or LinkedIn.

You can access Princeton MOOCs on edX, Coursera, and Kadenze. For edX specifically, many of the courses are now archived, which means that students can view most of the course materials, such as lectures and readings, but can't complete assignments for a grade or interact with course staff on forums.
