Something "fun" for free credits/electives
#1
Are there any providers that offer anything other than core type classes besides coppersmith for credit?  Interested is design, culinary, fashion, or just for general enjoyment instead of a required or core type class.  I love the format of SDC but they don't offer much besides a few hospitality courses.  If coppersmith is just read the text and take the test, that's not enjoyable at all.  Any ideas?

Check out https://www.onlinedegree.com/free-courses/.  They have a cooking class and a robotics class, they seem to be "fun" classes that are also worth college credit.
