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. Experts from around the world teach these continuing education courses.
I’ve learned so much.
Udemy’s instructors and experts have helped me build an income from home without spending a fortune on traditional education.
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.
I have taken many technical web development courses through StackSkills. They have some great software training courses and programming classes.
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.
Hubspot Academy has courses for many marketing and sales topics, including social media marketing, copywriting, and SEO. The courses are free.
Google provides training for anyone who needs to learn to use Google tools in the workplace. Their training site is Google Skillshop.
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.
