I love to learn. I seriously do. I’m not to big a fan of homework and projects and papers and such, but the learning – I LOVE it. As a teacher, I have to go to workshops and take classes to keep my certifications current, so I get to indulge my love of learning. However those aren’t always the topics I want to study. This summer, I took a math class for several reason. First, I can use it toward my certification renewals, but also, I am really horrible at math, and this class helped me and will allow me to help my students. So while I got to indulge my love of learning, it still wasn’t a topic that I had a burning passion to learn more about, and I had to shell out some serious money to pay for the college class. Paying isn’t necessarily a negative, but it can get rather expensive.
I needed to find a place where I could indulge my love of learning without breaking the bank, AND have an opportunity to learn about things just for the fun of it. There are night classes offered during the school year at a neighboring school district, and I’ve done a couple of those. I also discovered Udemy If you want to learn about it, Udemy is the place. They have classes on EVERYTHING. If personal development is your thing, you can find a plethora of classes to take. I’m currently taking a class called Hacking Your Subconscious Mind, and it’s fantastic. It helps you to unlock the power of the subconscious mind, and the instructor Brandon Leal presents the content in a manner that is straightforward and easy to understand. I’m loving it, and honestly, I think it the information provided applies to everybody! I’m also taking a class on writing just because it’s something that I love to do and it’s a skill I want to improve.
But the cool thing about Udemy is the sheer variety of courses that they offer. From music, to business, photography to academics, science to marketing and so much more. Don’t just take my word for it, visit Udemy and explore the courses. I can almost guarantee that you’ll find something to interest you. And the best part of it? These courses are self paced, so there is no pressure to get it done in a certain amount of time. As I said earlier, I love learning, and I truly believe that it learning should always be a part of our lives. Thanks to Udemy, it can be.
