We’ve all got some extra time on our hands–why not use it to improve our intellect? I’ve always wanted to go to Harvard (just a little difficult to get in) and now I can. I’m looking at their social justice class and it looks amazing!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t do a real Netflix binge. I watch maybe two episodes of a show and then my brain rejects the television. So being at home all the time is hard! I need to learn and grow my brain cells (not shrink them) and online learning is a great tool to facilitate this growth.

Here is a list of FREE online resources I discovered to get you started on your educational goals:

  1. Harvard: If you are chomping at the bit to take a Harvard course, the university details its online courses on its website. (These listings link to edX, which is where you can take the class.) Harvard offers courses on a variety of subjects; religion, coding, literature…The classes go from two to over 12 weeks. The site lets you easily filter the results to find free courses. The paid courses cost anywhere from $30 to over $3,000, and if you want a certificate to prove you’ve finished a free course, that will come with an additional cost ranging from $49 to $169. Or you could just tell everyone.
  2. Skillshare: Skillshare delivers classes mainly geared towards the arts, like: animation, music, photography, and creative writing, but they also offer instruction in business, technology, and marketing. Its course catalog is intended to encourage creativity and help people build creative skills into careers. Skillshare has a number of courses available for free, but to access the full catalog of courses, you have to pay for a premium membership of either $19 a month or $99 a year.
  3. EDX: edX was created by Harvard and MIT, and it partners with other universities, including Berkeley, Brown, and Cornell, to offer courses online. The site has a tremendous variety of classes, including subjects that range from data sciences to the arts and humanities. Most courses are available for free, but you will generally have to pay between $50 and $300 to be able to submit assignments for feedback and to receive a certificate.

So get going on that education! Who knows when we will ever have unscheduled downtime like this again? So, get off the sofa and browse through thousands of free classes for your career, passions and everything in between! Let’s all make the most of a really bad situation by becoming a better version of ourselves.
