Coursera, an online course provider, is offering your first month of its Coursera Plus premium subscription for only $1. Coursera operates similarly to a traditional college course, with enrollment windows, free audits and certificates that might apply as a credit at an institution. 

Coursera's $1 sign-up deal runs through Dec. 4 for new premium subscribers only. After that, you'll be charged the usual monthly rate of $59, but you can cancel anytime.

Coursera has more than 4,000 courses to choose from in topics such as business analytics, graphic design and coding, from accredited institutions such as Yale, Stanford and more. We previously highlighted some of Coursera's offerings for learning about cybersecurity, coding for beginners and learning Python.
