Coursera: Take the world’s best courses, online

Lately I’ve been looking a lot at online learning and trying to discuss it with friends, only to find out that only a few of them knew, what is actually available on the internet, and even fewer actually used these resources to further their learning. That’s why I’m writing this blog post now –  for all my friends, who want to broaden their knowledge of various topics, but are struggling to find the right resources for that.

Coursera is a website that has been around for some years now, but keeps on getting better and better. The site offers most of it’s courses for free, with the option to purchase a Certificate in the given field / course. It also offers a multitude of so-called Specializations – multiple courses stringed together to enable the learner to get to know the topic and be able to apply the knowledge in future projects.

A new feature of the site, currently in beta, is also Learning Path – enabling the student to choose a goal of his learning (e.g. learning to code / write complex programs) and presenting him / her with a list of possible courses that may be of interest.

The course categories are very well organized and enable you to find a fitting course in short time. Available are courses in Arts & Humanities, Business, Computer and Data Science, Life Sciences, Math and Logic, Personal Development, Physical Science and Engineering, Social Sciences, and Language Learning. As a bonus to all these, you can also get a fully-online degree or professional certificate on Coursera in a couple of areas of study.

But Coursera is not only available from the website – there are also official apps for both iPhone and Android devices available on the App Store and Google Play, enabling you to learn on the go, either while commuting to work or school, or simply when you have 10-15 minutes to spend watching a video or reading an article.

  1. Hey there,

    Throughout the world the Coronavirus pandemic is at the top of everybody’s mind. It is having untold effects on many industries and sectors globally.
    The great news though is that your sector is one of the few that are least affected by this pandemic. In fact, your business can/will thrive during this crisis. For this to happen though you need to engage with your customers (both present and potential ones) regularly during this time.
    One awesome way you can do this is through business blogging. By producing content on a regular basis you will keep your clients informed which helps them make buying decisions easily.
    Why should you publish blog posts regularly?
    Blogging is a vital game plan to reach your clientele.
    There are numerous reasons why that is the case, but these two stand out:
    • It is an effective way of engaging with your customers.

    • You have a 434% greater chance of being ranked top on Google if you feature a blog as part of your website (Tech Client).

    • Businesses using blogs as part of their content marketing strategy get 67% more leads than those who don’t (Hubspot).

    There is no dispute that blogging is essential for your online business, but blogging consistently is hard.
    You have to do keyword research, create titles, create the content (a good long-form blog post can take up to 7 hours to put together) and publish the content on your blog.
    The good news is you do not have to do all this.
    1. We can research the keywords for you (if you don’t have keywords already).
    2. Create catchy titles for your blog posts.
    3. Create a content calendar with the different topics and the date when each will be published on your blog.
    4. Publish the final blog post on your blog.
    By doing this for you we free your time to enable you focus on serving your clients. You can rest easy knowing that someone else is taking good care of your blog.
