“Learning is a phenomenon that should never stop..”, something I sincerely believe in. I crave to learn something new everyday and also try to explore never imagined territories. While exploring one of my favorite design communities, I came across this humongous list of courses across various subjects ranging from Architecture to Artificial Intelligence. And the best part is that these courses are delivered from lecturers across the world top universities like Stanford, MIT & Harvard and they are all free of cost.
