Online learning is not the next big thing, it is the now big thing.
– Donna J. Abernathy
Currently, there’s lockdown in most part of the world due to Corona Virus pandemic. Due to this, most of us are now forced to stay inside the home. I know you aren’t feeling good about this but there are ways to reduce stress. The best of them is probably learning something new.
Learning something new will keep you busy and also increase your knowledge. And the good thing is, you don’t need to go to University or pay lots of money to learn something. If you have a decent internet connection and computer – you are good to go. Because the course providers mentioned below are completely free.
Last time we discussed about Free Online Courses from Top Universities. All of the courses mentioned there were from Coursera.org. Today, we are going to discuss sites that provide courses for free – similar to Coursera.org.
