Adult learners can take online classes at no cost to keep their job skills up to date and pursue their interests.  Getting an online degree can be a major investment. But there are other ways to learn online without spending a dime. Jonathan Payne, a marketing coordinator at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, has taken several free online classes. His coursework led to certifications in Google Analytics and Adwords, and he has dabbled in programming on websites like Codecademy and edX. When it comes to coding, the 27-year-old says, “It’s just something I’ve always wanted to learn. It helps a little bit in my job but not enough to make me want to pay $8,000 to $10,000 to get a master’s degree or another bachelor’s degree.”
