Podcasts are a great type of online learning resource to help you broaden your perspective on a certain subject and to help you stay on the loop in that field. Also it’s the kind of content that you are able to consume while you’re doing something else.
So the next time you are about to clean your house, or about to go on a jog, or during a transit by train, or whatever it is that you’re doing on autopilot… first check our podcast collections for the most intriguing casts in your current learning subject, then put your earbuds in place and press play.
Whether it’s in a traditional form or in a digital file form, books are still a great learning resource.
The best kind of books to learn are obviously nonfiction books that contain scientific research and logic conclusions based on that research. But you can also learn a lot from the biographical stories from your learning subject’s specialists.
Also what comes to the physical form of a book, audiobooks you are able to use in a similar way as podcasts, just casually listening stuff to broaden your horizons on your favourite learning subjects. Great way to consume traditional books and ebooks is to read them during transit (obviously not while driving) or before going to sleep. For many people the habit of reading books before drifting away to the ‘feather islands’ serves also the quality of their sleep.
Use Google Search
When you need a single solution to your problem in practically any field, Google is your best friend. Even if you would not find a direct or precise solution, you’ll usually find some hint or reference that’ll help you to move forward in your research.
When Google doesn’t provide you with the correct answer, your next course of action is to ask from the online community that is related to your problem’s topic. With online communities you are also able to stay in the loop on the subject and you’re able to meet with people who have the same interests as yourself.
Our online communities collections are packed with relevant social media communities for you to rely on in the time of need.
Social Media Influencers
Thanks to social media platforms, entertainment consumption is globally bigger than ever but why not fill your personal feeds with the posts that’ll help you to learn, instead of cat videos or other content that is purely entertaining. You are probably consuming social media content anyway so when you follow accounts that are giving you educational content, you are able to learn from them unwittingly every day.
Our social media influencers collections have amazing accounts of influencers who have dedicated their lives to giving people useful content to learn from. So please use them to your own advantage.
Our category specific tools are digital softwares and tools that you may need to learn and use at some point of your career in that certain subject’s field.
Digital tools will inevitably spread to almost all industries so year after another it will be more important to know how to use them to do your job more efficiently. For most of these tools we’ll also make course recommendation articles so you’re able to find relevant highly-rated courses faster.
