The best world history courses come from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Princeton University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), according to an article published by MySlideRule.com in September 2014. The first example offers a 20-week course of general human history spanning from the dawn of man onward.
The course offered by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has a schedule that must be followed in order to absorb the course properly. The history is also more general than other courses, covering the span of human history from the Stone Age to the 21st Century. Reviews for this course are generally positive.
The MIT courses, contrastingly, only require that a user access the official website to locate various current and archived courses. Many dozens of courses are available for history and other topics, and new courses are constantly offered by MIT to those looking for them. MIT's OpenCourseWare service provides many featured courses that may prove interesting or useful for prospective students. Additionally, MIT has articles and information on its school and faculty, written by the faculty itself. Many of the professors provide constant input into OpenCourseWare, and many independent learners provide support to this online tool so that it remains available to the public.
