Oh, the 21st century is a great time to be alive. Continuing Education has never been easier, especially if you’re on a tight budget.
Modern technology offers us some really amazing tools and resources for continuing education or just brushing up on some skills with online courses. In this post, I’d like to share a few that I’ve personally used.
Resources for Continuing Education
Udemy has some amazing continuing education courses on pretty much any topic imaginable. These continuing education courses are taught by experts from around the world.
I’ve learned so much.
For a modest price (starting at $25/month or $250/year), you can take courses for learning how to use specific software. I originally started using Lynda when I was trying to figure out the latest versions of Adobe Photoshop, after finally upgrading my 15-year-old version.
There are many free videos on Lynda for you to sample. Most of the first few videos in each course are freely available to try it out.
Believe it or not, YouTube can be used for more than just watching cat videos. Whenever I’m trying to figure out how to do something specific, I have found that searching on YouTube, instead of just having a general web search, is super helpful.
Itunes, the app from Apple mostly used for listening to music, also can be a great learning tool. I use iTunes to subscribe to and listen to free podcasts on topics I’m brushing up on.
Jenni told me about this one in a comment below. It’s just $10 a month, and full of great arts and crafts courses that I look forward to exploring more.
