Free Courses Search Engine
Have you ever found yourself scouring the web for courses, only to end up frustrated by the limited options or high price tags? Well, I almost fixed that for you. So here is how the journey began.
After finishing my Fajr prayer, I began exploring open directories and indexes on the internet. The thought of creating a custom search engine to display free downloads links of premium courses suddenly popped into my head. I immediately launched VSCodium, my favorite code editor, followed by Figma, my go-to design aide, and began implementing my idea.
Having identified several websites where I could download free courses, I injected them into my custom search engine “cse furnace” and quickly generated a script. Then, I was ready to write boilerplate & the stylesheet. Not gonna lie, I also employed chatGPT to write a basic format for a media query because I wasn’t sure about break points.
Well, In less than an hour, the custom search engine was up and running, and soon to be available to all. I named it Course Searx, inspired from a privacy-respecting actual search engine Searx and hosted it on Netlify. CourseSearx serves to provide an easily-accessible resource where users can find free, premium courses. I hope this site proves to be useful to all those who use it.
You can find Course Searx at https://cse.cosmicqbit.dev/. Please feel free to reach out with any feedback as it is greatly appreciated, may be some sites you know for downloading premium courses for free.
