If you are a life-long learner and look for every opportunity to expand your knowledge base, learn new skills or build upon old ones, and you are used to doing so via online courses.

People gravitate towards them because they can be taken in their PJs from the comfort of their own home office or bed on a laptop.

I horde them. I admit. It’s addicting. I try to go through at least one every week or two.

If you’re like me, you will want to check out these 30 courses I’ve curated starting at free to about $15 for everything from coding, starting a business or StartUp, understanding Google Analytics, launching a blog, figuring out SEO, photography basics and more!

Below, I list some of the popular ones that have gotten on average between 100 to 5,000 reviews, mainly 4 to 5 Stars positive recommendations and over 100,000 students so you know they are the cream of the crop and you’re getting these valuable courses for dirt cheap!

If you were to purchase all of the classes on this 20-item list, you’d spend $200 (and could gift some away), and save over $3,000!!
