Currently, due to Coronavirus pandemic – many parts of the world is under lockdown.

The situation was similar during 1665 A.D. when Newton was a 20 years old student.

Due to Pandemic – Newton had to leave college. Although he wasn’t in college – he continued his studies and did great discoveries. He even called the period as intellectually – the most productive time of his life.

For in those days I was in the prime of my age for invention & minded Mathematics & Philosophy more than at any time since

– Sir. Issac Newton

He used the time wisely – We should too.

The good thing is – It’s actually easier for us to make this time productive due to the Internet.

If you have a decent internet connection – you can take courses from top universities around the world – taught by best researchers and educators – for FREE.

Such courses at university cost thousands of dollars but now they are FREE.

And you don’t even need to search the internet for hours and hours to find courses – because we did it for you.
