Coursera offers college-level courses on just about every subject by pooling together resources from organizations and universities worldwide. The website caters to those seeking in-depth knowledge of a particular topic or trade, those who wish to earn more credentials and excel in their careers, or those who simply want to learn.

One of Coursera's most popular courses is The Science of Well-Being. Yale Professor Laurie Santos teaches simple but effective methods to become a happier person and develop lasting healthy habits. Santos highlights the benefits of laughter, gratitude, and diffusing negative emotions by acknowledging them, accepting them, and viewing them as dark clouds that will pass.


Nearly all of us have listened to a TED Talk. The organization responsible for bringing you inspirational and influential talks with "ideas worth spreading," now offers a platform for teachers, students, and learning enthusiasts worldwide. That platform is TED-Ed. TED-Ed covers anything from a course exploring The Meaning of Life and 3 Ways To Measure Your Adaptability to courses explaining How Roller Coasters Affect Your Body and How To 3D Print Human Tissue. On TED-Ed, you can learn about science, nutrition, sleep, health, philosophy, nature, and physics.


Take your mind off daily worries by nurturing your mind. If you ever dreamed of saying you studied at Harvard, Harvard Extension online courses may be your ticket to making it happen.
