Edspire is the search engine for online learning, allowing users to find courses, tutorials, lectures, videos, books, articles on a variety of subjects.
Edspire separates its subjects by category, which includes Arts/Humanities, Social Sciences, Business/Professional, and Science/Technology. Each of these categories are further broken down into smaller subcategories, like Transportation under Business/Professional or Geography under Social Sciences. The site mostly helps users find Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), as well as courses from other online learning providers. There is, however, the option to find specific videos, lectures, and texts that can help further your understanding of a specific subject.
With such a vast amount of free courses currently available online, Edspire is like a course catalogue or college counselor for the digital learning age. If you want to learn more about something, all you have to do is type it into Edspire’s search engine and the site will direct you to the correct location. Although it doesn’t actually offer courses, it directs users to several different course providers and platforms. The best aspect of Edspire is that it allows users to choose the learning method that works best for their personal preferences, choosing videos or tutorials or a course from a specific university. It’s never been easier to learn for free about any topic of your choosing, and Edspire offers the perfect opportunity to discover the best opportunities to do so.
