  1. Udemy
    This is a massive online teaching platform with over 2 million students worldwide and 13,000 courses.  It lets instructors design robust classes including video lectures, PowerPoint files, screencast videos, documents, audio files, text, and mashup videos.  The platform is completely free for instructors to create their courses which they may offer for free or for a fee.  If there is a fee involved, Udemy takes a percentage of that.  This is a very professional-looking platform that has a lot to offer.
