About two-and-a-half years ago, The PractitioNERD released a blog post about some free architecture courses offered by MIT, TU Delft, edX and the Open Online Academy. Basically, if you want to continue learning about the world of architecture without forking over the dough for a  master’s or a doctorate, this is a good way to go.  Essentially, taking short-term courses remotely have become popular worldwide as educational alternatives as they make it easier to dive into the varied topics these coursed cover, thanks to platforms like edX (offered by Harvard and MIT).

While online classes for longer-term and undergrad classes my not be ideal replacements for face-to-face meetings (everyone’s mileage will vary), these short-term lessons are easy to follow and allow for participation in discussions with people all over the world via the internet is definitely a yuuuge advantage. So, without further ado, here are some architecture courses that cover areas from sustainability, video game design, bio-cellular, history, and this thing called “architectural imagination”; a.k.a., freshman design studio (OHHHHHHHH BURRRRN!):
