Must-check online courses

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”.

Growth Hacker Marketing: The Course


Ryan Holiday

Ryan is a cool guy with an enormous background to share. The course costs only 20$ ( wait, that’s only 4 cups of coffee?) and has many  extra tools as a bonus.

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.

Growth hackers have thrown out the old playbook and replaced it with tools that are testable, trackable, and scalable. 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.
