Practically any and every thing is available to you, via a click on your computer or a couple of taps on phone, which is awesome.
Like most people, when I want to find out how to do something really fast (i.e get a stain of carpet or hair tutorial) I hit up YouTube and for fast facts or info, there’s always my BFF, Google.
However, there are some skills and knowledge that aren’t so quick or beneficial to absorb instantly and requires dedicated time. In the past, when you’ve had the urge to learn a new skill, you signed up for classes at a local college/university or online classes.
Those options are still great, but the latest thing to help you learn, sharpen, or advance yourself in new skills are websites that offer online video courses. Not only are the courses in video format, but most of these sites offer a wide range of subjects for business or hobby. Plus, unlike online course via an online university, you have the option and convenience to complete these courses at your own pace, time, and location and for the fraction of the cost.
So, if you are looking to further your knowledge on business skills, software, or a hobby you’ve been meaning to take up, then try one of the sites below that will show you how to learn anything and anywhere.
- Lynda.com – A membership based site that offers thousands of online video courses in everything from business skills, technology, and software that’s available from your computer and their app that’s available from iOS and Android.
- Skillshare.com – Like Lynda.com, Skillshare is another membership based site with online video course. However, Skillshare focuses on creative courses including photography, DIY, and even Entrepreneurship.
- Udemy.com – Udemy, like Lynda.com, offers thousands of course in a wide range of subjects from computer programming to yoga. However, this site isn’t membership based. You pay for individual courses that you can learn at your pace, time, and location.
I’m really looking into perfecting my graphic design skills, since I haven’t used them in awhile and I’ve been into photography. So, I think I’m going to sign up for SkillShare. Are you thinking about taking some online video courses to work on somethings and further yourself, personally and professionally?
