This is such a great list! I haven't heard of a lot of these programs. I'm currently in college studying anthropology but I have so many other interests that I unfortunately can't study officially. I love online courses like these because they are so flexible on top of being free. Another favorite source of mine is Coursera where universities periodically sponsor free college level courses. Thanks for compiling this list of resources, I look forward to checking out a few of these.
