Learn Something New – Online Courses

This lock-down might be good time to learn a new skill or get a certificate online.

There are a wide variety of free courses available on some of the well regarded websites below, but check it out because not all are free. Some courses will offer the course for free but ask you to pay for the certificate, so it will depend on whether you feel you need that or not. Many of these are offered by universities so the accreditation might be worthwhile.

And there are lots more online training and education websites out there depending on your interests. Do your research though because some courses are not good value.

If you know of any other good websites and courses, let us know in the comments below, thanks.
