Last August, we made a post about how MIT, Harvard, and Berkeley had collaborated on offering free university courses through the edX program. At the time, 7 courses were offered. One year later, the edX program now has more than 40 courses available and more than 20 universities signed on.
This is a great way to challenge yourself and to learn new things. You've got online access to lectures tools, real course materials, and you'll be doing actual coursework. To be clear, these are non-credit courses, but certifications are available.

- 3.091x: Introduction to Solid State Chemistry (MITX)
