Learning doesn't have to be in the classroom.

Education doesn't always take a lot of money.

As long as you don't just look for a piece of paper with your name + graduation degree, you can get a variety of knowledge for free.

Whether it's to fill the free time waiting for college selection next year, improving skills for the sake of work or adding a portfolio of certificates as a condition of college scholarships.

In this article, not only are free online learning sites certified in Indonesian/English, we have also collected alternative online classes that are also useful even if they do not offer certificates:


1. IndonesiaX – Delivering materials in Indonesian Language

6. LessonPaths – Learn online from content on the internet hassle-free

7. Khan Academy – Has comprehensive math materials

Khan Academy has been around since 2006 and is among the oldest online learning sites on the internet. Khan Academy is similar to Alison, the difference is, Khan Academy does not provide a certificate if it successfully completes the subject matter.

9. TED-Ed – Collect all TED's inspiring content in one place

Similar to LessonPaths, but TED-Ed is built on a variety of TED content on the internet so we can learn about it in one place. In addition, TED-Ed has a kind of short quiz and container for discussion with other users.
