I have always loved free. Kind of like the current Turbo Tax commercials, freefreefreefree free. Whoever wrote those are my kind of peeps.
However, I also really really like to learn new things. So I search and search for new things to try and new ways to learn.
To get right to the point, here is a list of what I have found:
This has some really great looking classes. Anything from Successful Negotiation Skills to learning programming. I am definitely going to look into the programming one.
2. Your Local Library Website
- Go to your local library website
- Under Research Tools, search for online learning
- Look through the collection to find something that might interest you
I have done this one before. In fact, I am currently taking a creative writing course. It even has an instructor who is active on the platform (so there is actually an instructor that is monitoring the class). I am definitely enjoying it so far!
NOTE: You will need a library card for this one.
There is more to do on your library’s website as well. Look for streaming services for movies and music and e-books. I have recently found my library’s e-book app and I am addicted! They even have audio books that I do not have to pay for! (Cuz you know I love freefreefree free free!!)
- Go to Udemy.com
- In the search bar at the top, search “free”
I am currently taking a couple of classes from udemy.com and they seem to be going very well! I am taking my time on them and there is no due date. I am not sure about the free ones but they sure look interesting! I will be looking into these ones as well. Looking through them, they seem to be an average of 1-3 hours to complete.
- Go to skillshare.com
- Look for courses that interest you!
You don’t even need to sign up for an account! Just search for a topic you would like to learn about and listen. Simple and easy. Find classes on productivity, photography, art, you name it. Definitely worth checking out!
I am sure there are many more out there but these are the ones that I would recommend starting with.
Now get your butt out there and start learning something new!
