Scientists or Researchers or Experimenters generate the knowledge and disseminate to the world for free but some strangers make money out of it. How does this possible first of all? It happens due to the stupidity of learners who always believe in the name of "tradition" and accompanied by "accreditation". Straight to the point : "Advan-kt has created a database, mostly to offer links where the free educational and tuition free educational resources are located in online medium. So from now on, nobody should say education is far away to reach. Of course, the education is free free free in modern era ! Dont force yourself to see in the following situations !
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reveals what are their contribution that changes this world. Moreover, MIT allows anybody to take their knowledge for free through online studies (MOOC). So take the knowledge from whom it was originally dicovered by. What makes a person to believe in copycat universities lecture notes ?
Elsevier Researcher Academy (ELSEVIER) educates young researchers to excel in the research despite fields. It offers 63 online courses for free so the graduate students will never get confused with the private and external sources about research fields. It has 130 years of history in publishing new knowledges which contributes to scientific growth remarkably. ELSEVIER

Copycat universities survive only with the name tag of 'accreditation' in this world. As far as Advan-kt knows, they do not contribute to any out standing research or at least for an original generation of knowledge in any mean. They act as photocopy machines to re-produce someone's work through their lectures and finally release their certificate for the money that they have collected until then. Some universities allow their university name to be used for a franchise operation and allow third party to eat 90% of the students money. Let's not to blame the original game changing private universities, like MIT, who contribute for the growth of science via true knowledge generation. It is people obligation to reject copycat universities, proclaiming that they are : "top % universities in the world" - gimmicks. Can universities new buildings, swiming pools, tennis courts, student hostels, Snooker tables and etc guarantee contemporary knowledge ?
Another open cheating is the classroom assignment that given by academics! Assignment has been substituted by discussion-report under MOOC educational system because too many agents are available for money; nowadays in online medium. Rather helping to educate or improve the students writing skills in addition to technical knowledge, they write it down completely for students. This must be seen as plagiarism. In MOOC education, the assignment part has to be done with the help of online learners community. By doing so, an academic person is being witnessed your assignment completion. This creates trustworthy of your academic credential as compared to copycat universities system.
Consider learning from master inventors in science or arts; and not from third person who has previously learned it and reproduce it always. When learning from master inventors, a person gains true knowledge of the matter and of course, not any form of distortion. Distortive knowledge can be avoided in such ways if the secondary reproducers have really mastered in the field of expertise; by publishing substantial improvement in the field. Post territorial education needs to be worldclass (no matter whether the delivery is online or on campus based or something else); otherwise graduates will be ended up as unemployed-grads in modern era. Professor Walter Lewin (explained rainbow) and Professor Anant Agarwal (CEO, edX) from MIT have recorded and shared their lectures to millions around the world for free. See below for examples:
