⁣⁣
If you missed the first two posts, this will be a great time to pause here and go through them first. ⁣
⁣⁣
Have you? Great. ⁣
⁣⁣
Let’s get right into it. ⁣
⁣.⁣
⁣In 2016, I paid for my first online course with Udemy.⁣

⁣I had just graduated as a human physiologist and was almost sure my path is towards tech even though I still had some reservations. ⁣
⁣⁣
It was a course on web development using HTML, CSS and JavaScript at a promo price of $15.⁣
⁣⁣
I remember how I felt using my ATM at that time to make my first payment in dollars. ⁣
⁣⁣
Since that day, I have done many other courses and learnt from multiple sources online to develop my skill and my ability to deliver.⁣

⁣This has not only made me more valuable as a person, but has drastically improved the worth of my digital consulting services. ⁣

⁣From my personal experience, there are three main ways you can learn online.⁣

⁣Leveraging on all 3 of them adequately will set you apart from those that just blindly connect their devices to the internet to do nothing all day.⁣
⁣.⁣⁣
⁣1. Free Platforms⁣

These are the channels you can get valuable information without having to pay a subscription or a course fee.⁣
⁣⁣
There are many of these I’ve personally discovered and used over the years but I’ll share just 5 of them you can start using immediately.⁣

⁣- Youtube⁣
– Coursera (partially free)⁣
– edx.org
– openculture.com
– Alison.com⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣2. Paid Platforms⁣

These are channels you can both get trained and certified in online.⁣

They require a fee to enroll in the courses or to get certificates.⁣

⁣I’ll share some of them you can start using to learn.⁣⁣

– Udacity.com
– Udemy.com
– Pluralsight.com (for tech skills)⁣
– linkedin.com/learning⁣
– skillshare.com
⁣⁣⁣
3. Social Platforms.⁣

This is a very huge, but underutilized channel to learn online.⁣

⁣Being on social media can give you access to both information and opportunities if you know the right things to do.⁣

⁣Social learning starts from knowing the right people to follow based on the kinds of content you need to grow. ⁣
⁣⁣
I’ll talk about some proven strategies to learn on social media in my next post.⁣

Mastering the ability to filter educational and practical content online is a skill you must attain.⁣

⁣Your digital productivity is tied to your ability to rise above the noise. ⁣
