*Free* Fall MOOC's for Teachers/Educators

I took a couple of excellent courses this summer from Coursera and edX, so I thought it was time to find out what was available for teaching and learning this fall. I've also taken MOOC's with and Open2Study, and heard good reviews of FutureLearn, too. I found a number of interesting courses from all of these vendors, and listed them below, along with their student ratings (if available). FYI: I don't work for any of these these companies, I just enjoy learning new things, and the price is right.

Watch out: Coursera has changed. Some courses are still free. But now, some courses are free, but there's a catch: you don't get to submit the assignments and/or tests (I haven't taken one of these yet). And just like there were previously, there are courses you can pay for, if you want a certificate. But there's now a new wrinkle: paid specializations. Groups of individual courses are bundled into specializations. So if you want to take free courses, search for courses, not specializations.
