Free Online Courses

Hey! in this blog I am going to share a site where you can access free courses that also provides certification. No, further ado, here you go πŸ˜βœ‹Free Online Courses to Power Your Future | SkillUp by Simplilearn

I tried it and took the python 3.x course. I was able to finish it for about 3 days. I know python but I just want to have a certificate of completion, so I took it. It also a good way to refresh mind. Here is my cert: https://simpli-web.app.link/e/xd2x2Qs6vFb

The UI is simple but it's really easy to navigate through the lessons. You can also see your progress bars per topic. You need to definitely need to try it. Once you finished the course. You can share you certificate through link, or you can download a pdf copy of it.

Why, though? Yes, free courses are available on the internet, like YouTube. When you think about it, there is a lot of free content on the internet, especially on YouTube and websites that teach you how to code and create things. However, even though they are free, they don't provide anything after finishing watching those tutorials.

Why opt for free online courses? While they don't cost anything, the real value comes after completion when you receive a rewarding certificate. This certificate serves as a valuable addition to your credentials, enhancing your profile and proving beneficial in job searches.

In the site I have given they have a ton of free courses, from data science, excel, programming, aws, etc. Not only that they have partnered with amazon (AWS) and google cloud to provide free course for their platforms.

Why Self Learning is very Important.

Self-learning is an emerging form of learning that has become increasingly popular due to the availability of learning resources online. It enables you to learn what you want, when you want, and how you want. Self-directed learning has been proven to be effective, convenient, and fast, thanks to the rise of the internet.

Self-learning is important for several reasons. Firstly, it allows you to develop strong problem-solving skills. You learn how to identify problems and quickly look for effective solutions on your own. This could be from colleagues, the internet, or by exploration. Challenges and obstacles do not kill your drive to get things done, instead, they provide you with new opportunities to learn something new at your own pace and time.

Secondly, self-learning is a stress-free learning process. The process of self-learning places a great emphasis on the process rather than the outcome of the learning. Moreover, there is no pressure to learn the required content within a certain time, with the ultimate goal being the achievement of high grades. You choose what you want to learn when you want to learn, and how you want to learn. The overall outcome is an internalization of content, and this is why self-learners tend to internalize what they learn, more than those who take part in directed learning.

Thirdly, self-learning enables you to gain other skills in the process. When learning, you get to learn other important skills such as time management, self-assessment, and setting your own goals. These are important skills that you can apply anywhere. In fact, people who are good at self-learning have an increased ability to develop other skills as they often have to employ a certain set of skills in order to learn. Finally, self-learners have a strong commitment to tasks, as they learn how to stick to a plan until they achieve their goals.
