We’ve all probably used iTunes U to “attend” a free university course or actually taken a free course from a service similar to ALISON.  However, Coursera seems to have managed to ratchet this up a bit by offering real, instructor-led undergraduate and graduate-level courses from top-tier universities (including EPFL) – for FREE.  These courses do not let you move at your own pace, as many of them can last as long as 10 weeks, but you are able to earn certificates of successful completion from many of them.  Recently, they just surpassed 1 million users of the service and are looking to continue expanding their offerings.
