Ever since the birth of the internet it has slowly been changing almost every part of our daily lives. The way in which we make friends has changed thanks to social media, the way in which we do business has changed thanks to the world becoming closer together, the way in which we shop has changed as more of us opt to buy our stuff online and even our educational needs have changed thanks to the internet. On the theme of education, it has never been easier to learn a new skill, craft or branch of learning than it is right now and in the internet we have the greatest teacher and library that anyone could wish for.
If you are looking to learn something new then here are just a few ways in which you can do so online.
The internet hasn’t yet replaced real human beings but it can be used to find other humans who can privately tutor you online. Thanks to programs like Skype and FaceTime, we can video cha with anyone from around the world and the internet can put you in touch with someone who is willing to offer their services to teach you something new. Try websites like Upwork where you can pitch for someone to teach you the new skill which you are looking to learn.
WikiHow is seeking to create a website which has instructions on how to do anything in the world, and they are well on their way. In fact, the website has over 1 million instruction guides on how to perform or learn a new skill or gain new knowledge and the guides are very detailed and highly recommended. Each year that passes the website adds more and more guides to its page which means that you can learn more and more things in the future.
You don’t even need to pay for most of the online guidance which you can find and one of the most popular ways to learn something new is to watch online video tutorials. On YouTube for example, you can find recordings of actual school and university classes on a wide variety of different subjects. You can also find videos which teach you how to play guitar or piano, how to skateboard, how to build a rocket and how to knit a jumper, the range is staggering and if you want to learn something new, hit the videos first.
Self learning is the order of the day and you can get your hands on the very curriculums which teachers use to teach the world’s children. Not only this, but you can also download tests and exams which school kids take so that you can test yourself. If you want to go back to school, you won’t need to pay or go to a building, you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
If you want to learn something new and use the internet to do it then simply go to the search engine, type in what you want to learn, and study as hard as you can.
