Staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic has brought many some extra time. Now is a great opportunity for anyone to participate in online learning. By taking online courses, individuals have the chance to upskill themselves, adding new skillsets to their repertoire. These new skills could be useful in a current or future position.
When seeking out online learning, Brian recommends three platforms. First is Coursera, which offers free online courses from top universities like Yale and Stanford, as well as from brands like Google and IBM. Classes are free, but students can pay for them to earn college credits.
Second is edX, a platform that boasts over 2,000 free online courses taught by instructors from Harvard, MIT, and more. This provider offers classes that can help students learn a new skill or gain a certification.
Third is Khan Academy, which features short video tutorials, intended for K-12 and higher education students. Users can take courses at their own pace, completely free.
Brian said, “Make sure you find the right platform and invest the time to do some learning.”
