Having graduated high school as well as my BA (Hons) online, I am most definitely a fan of online courses – because the classes aren’t grade-based, students are offered different levels of participation and commitment.
These levels depend on the interest level of the student and the time available, ranging from casual interest and up to heavily engaged students. I am sharing few of the courses I have taken or am signed up for myself. These are suitable for “tourists”, “explorers” and “adventurers”.
Anyone can watch their live online workshops — for free — and interact with instructors in real time. Past courses on Yoga, Youtube Marketing, Business of Photography, Mastering Body Language, Public Speaking and many others – are available to purchase. This weekend they have a Cyber Weekend Sale with everything up to 50% off.

A new generation of megabrands like Facebook, Dropbox, Airbnb, and Twitter haven’t spent a dime on traditional marketing. No press releases, no TV commercials, no billboards. Instead, they rely on a new strategy—growth hacking—to reach many more people despite modest marketing budgets.

They believe that products and businesses should be modified repeatedly until they’re primed to generate explosive reactions. If you want to know what Growth Hacking is and how it may help you in your creative & digital career, get the course here.
This crash course is designed to explore several factors that stimulate and inhibit creativity in individuals, teams, and organizations. Each session has a focus on a different variable related to creativity, such as framing problems, challenging assumptions, and creative teams.
