Free Online IT training

I have listened to Leo on The Tech Guy for years, and I have heard him mention some online resources for people who want to learn IT training… Some free options.

Now, I have a friend who wants to do that, but I cannot remember the sites…

I think he said Harvard had some free lectures online, with video… I think it was Harvard - maybe it was some other school. He has also mentioned many other sites…

I wish I had written all that down.

Anyone know of anything, or remember the sites that Leo has mentioned in the past?

I probably recommended edX - not all the courses are free but many are. It was created by Harvard and MIT.

I took, and loved, the University of British Columbia’s introductory programming courses:

A great starting point is Harvard’s intro to computer science:

Thanks a bunch!!!

I audited the course for 2020 and I was absolutely impressed with the quality for free (including the infrastructure to automatically mark/grade a majority of the assignments.) You might think it’s a light course because it’s free, but it’s not… it’s quite rigorous… but it moves fast, so you have to work diligently to make the most of it.

Appreciate the info.

IT training could be quite a bit different than programming/coding classes.

Have study/learn the COMP-TIA stuff and Cisco CCNA. You can find quite a bit for free.
