Staying at home can be tiring, but doesn’t mean you can’t be productive. I am sure you must have seen the popular advice trending this period saying you should enroll for an online course. Yes, I am totally in support of that, but you have got to be smart about it. We have a list of 450 free online courses for you.
There is no sense in rushing to enroll for any and all available free courses. Right now, there are hundreds of free courses available. No one says you must do all of them. You’ve got to pick carefully. Firstly, is the course you want to take in line with your career path? Does it directly add value to your professional stature? Is it a field you are interested in? When you take a course in the field you are pursuing a career in, you would find it easier to find a job.
Other questions you should ask yourself is if you have the available time and interest to finish the course. 50% of online courses are not completed, as people abandon them halfway. I am sure you don’t want to be among the statistics of people who dropped out. Just like a mem I saw somewhere, you dropped out of school, you still dropped out of online courses. Loool.
So, get yourself together. Take it as a serious schooling project. Choose your preferred course, then schedule a time for your study. For me, I like to learn very early in the morning, around 4am – 7am. I find that that time is very calm, and I am still fresh. Look for what works for you, and be consistent with it. Also, get a dedicated notepad for your jottings. Take notes and do more research. Try your best to finish every course you start. It is very necessary.
That said, I have curated five amazing online courses you could run for FREE this period.
