If there’s anything I am passionate about, it is learning. Oh oh. I love learning new skills – learning new things. Online learning offers a new way to explore subjects you’re passionate about. . I talked a bit about this here and the beautiful thing is that, I have discovered more learning platforms on the Inter-webs.
My fav Learning Platforms right now are:
Highbrow is a FREE e-mail subscription service that brings cool and exciting bite-sized daily courses to your inbox. You can only subscribe to one course at a time because they want you to form a good daily habit and not tire your brain out. They even allow you set a delivery time according to your time zone, so you can get the mails exactly what you want. Check ‘em out here.
Duolingo is a FREE game styled platform that allows you learn as many languages as you want. Learning with Duolingo is fun and addictive. Earn points for correct answers, race against the clock, level up and link your fluency rating to your LinkedIn Profile! You can get the Windows App, iOs App or Android App or, you can access Duolingo via web.
Coursera is a semi-FREE platform that provides universal access to the world’s best education, partnering with top universities and organizations to offer courses online. However, to get certificates for these courses, you may be required to make payment.
FutureLearn offers hundreds of FREE online courses: from Language & Culture to Business & Management; Science & Technology to Health & Psychology. FutureLearn recently won the “Best Education or Learning Experience” category and then competed against the other category winners to win the grand prize of “Best User Experience” at the UXUK Awards.
Shaw Academy is a PAID learning platform that claims to offer the highest quality, practical, transparent education to everyone! FutreLearn offers live lessons from professionals with fully interactive bonus Q & A sessions. You can learn at your own pace with access to the recordings of your live classes.
