Free Courses with Certificates, offered through Coursera. Deadline: July 31, 2020.
At the end of March, the world’s largest Massive Open Online Course provider Coursera announced that they are offering 100 free courses in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most recently, Coursera added another 35 new courses from its Latin American university partners and extended the deadline. See the entire list put together by Dhawal Shah. There are none on any intercultural or dialogue topics, but here are some that still may be of interest:
Language learning courses include: Chinese for Beginners, First Step Korean, and Tricky American English Pronunciation. Job skills include: How to Write a Resume, and How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper. More general skills courses include: Creative Problem Solving, and Communication Strategies for a Virtual Age.
