Published on Nov 18, 2012 6:00 AM

Sites offering Mass Open Online Courses (MOOC) such as Coursera, edX, and Udacity are partnering top universities and industry professionals, and leading the way in providing free world-class online education.

At least 9,000 Singaporeans have enrolled for such courses according to a Coursera spokesman.

Singaporeans who spoke to Sunday Life! say it takes dedication to complete a course which can be very demanding on one's time.

But others are just happy to have the option of learning something new without having to pay.
