Default MOOC courses - recommendations?

Hello,
Just wondering if anyone has put any effort into any MOOC course offerings, and if they had any recommendations, more geared towards the social sciences/law type courses?

Entirely meaningless when it comes to job prospects I imagine, although you can pay for a certificate of completion (I doubt that means jack )
More a personal development, want to learn but can’t afford to not work and attend schooling type thing.

Cheers.

Check out edX.org, they have a variety of courses from many universities, including social science and law courses. I am doing a data science intro course, and like what I have seen so far

I've done quite a few courses in both Coursera and EdX. I've found the edX ones quite a bit more challenging and would call them intermediate/senior level whereas the ones on Coursera a bit more introductory.

Of course this is likely dependent on what you're taking. The edX ones are in Energy Engineering and the Coursera ones have been in Wind Energy, Roman/Greek Mythology, and Macrofinances (Wealth of Nations etc.).

I'd search both for courses that interest you and definitely try both platforms.

Me: Googles what a MOOC course is.

OK. So it's like when smart people say "ATM Machine" or "CP Puck Forums"
