The price of an online lesson varies depending on the type of lesson, the subject matter and the organization offering it. Free video lessons and no-charge college courses are available through several websites including KhanAcademy.org and Udemy.com, while some local universities offer non-credit online classes at a discounted rate. Montgomery College in Maryland allows residents and non-residents to enroll in instructor-facilitated online lessons in topics such as teaching, technology, law and accounting for $110 and $115 respectively, as of 2015.
Khan Academy offers dozens of online lessons in subjects such as math, science, humanities and finance, along with practice assessments, question-and-answer forums and test prep resources. The website is available in five languages, and the lessons are freely accessible to visitors of all ages.
The courses available from Udemy include both free and paid content. Paid courses may cost as little as $25, and usually do not cost more than $100. The website offers online lessons in almost anything, including language, personal development, sales, math and science.
Online lessons with live tutors vary depending on the provider. For instance, Chegg offers rates starting at 50 cents per minute. Tutor.com offers three monthly packages, starting at $39.99 for 60 minutes of assistance, as of 2015.
