Skill Share is more for those who want to learn the creative side of a business. Whether that be photography, graphic design, how to use the Adobe Creative Cloud, or drawings to animations, Skill Share’s got you covered! They have a wide range of free online courses that you can start with, and if you want more, you can subscribe for unlimited access.
This is such a generous offer by Facebook. They teach you how to bring your business online; building an audience; establishing your presence; attracting an audience; improving your creative strategy and so on. Plus, they also cover courses on advertising products online which is perfect for those with a business who haven’t started advertising on social media platforms yet!
Previously known as Lynda.com, LinkedIn learning courses fall under three big categories which are: Business, Creative, and Technology. With 16,000+ courses taught by industry professionals, their content is nothing but superb. Calling for all UQ students – all UQ students and staff members can access ALL LinkedIn Learning for FREE. This is truly a #UQadvantage!
Another great free learning tool is Coursera, with its great reviews that many previous students have seen the benefits of this learning platform, I think it will benefit us too. There are also a variety of courses to choose from, which I am sure you will want to go through!
Ah – this one is a classic! We’ve heard countless times that if you are stuck on an assignment, just YouTube it! And we all know that sometimes, YouTube videos are easier to understand than other academic sources. So here are some of the educational channels that we recommend, but if you are looking for something in particular, just look it up on YouTube!
Finally but not least, podcasts are also a great way to learn about… anything, basically! Here are some of the ones we recommend:
- Sarah Newport (Newish Communications’ mentor; Founder of Twenty-two digital)
- The Science of Social Media
- Instagram Insider Hacks
- The Digital Marketing Podcast
- Marketing Over Coffee
- My Business Playbook
That was a lot to unpack, but self-learning courses are great to go through when you have time, like during a school or uni holiday. Never stop learning because you never know when those skills will become useful. Thank us later!
