Study for Free online
Thinking of studying and not sure what to do? Have few financial resources? Have you looked at any of the free online courses available.
Did you know that Libraries can offer Free Courses and you can access them from home. Of course you need a computer and Internet Access, but if you don't have that you might use the facilities at your local library, or somewhere else where you can link to the 'Net if you have your own computer.
There are many courses – including Basic Math, Computer training, Driving Skills, Leadership, Job Search, and lots more. Some of the courses you can even get a certificate for completing the course. And all for FREE.
Are you interested in creating your own website? Or Blog? Why not try the course from Lynda.com? It leads you through a step by step program which you can stop and return to, when time suits you.
First of all, you need to sign up with a Library. Most any Library has access to these courses. You need your membership card to access the Library website, then the courses. Then, off you go at your own pace.
Go and speak to the Library staff who may be able to show you how to access the material.
Another very interesting website with free courses is Open2study.com, which is an initiative of Open Universities Australia. A great wide range of courses – many of which may lead you into employment in the future. It is well worth a look.
Some of the courses are Photography, World Music, Indigenous Studies, Physics, Food, Nutrition and Health, Chinese Language and Culture and so many more.
I'd recommend these sites for anyone thinking of changing jobs, or who are currently unemployed or between jobs. They will enable you to keep yourself busy and make good use of your time.
Perhaps you want to go to university and need to upgrade your education, or revitalise your study skills. Click here for a free course with Charles Darwin University.
Whether you want to upgrade some skills for employment, or keep your brain active, there certainly is a raft of courses to choose from.
