Did you know the online education site Codecademy was once backed by the White House? Pretty fancy resume they've got there, but what does it all mean? Well, it means the White House supports teaching people how to code. While that's great and all, there are plenty of other educational sites that do so much more. Let's check out five of them right now.
YouToken isn't backed by the White House; at least, not yet. That doesn't mean it's not worth your time, though. Speaking of time, we all know time is valuable. YouToken understands that, too. That's why they create quick, fun, and easy to use lessons online. Don't let this fool you, though. The material is in-depth and high quality. They just teach it in a way that makes you feel like you're actually enjoying yourself. If only all online education sites were this awesome.
Sometimes, you don't want to pay for education. That's completely reasonable. However, keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Khan Academy is wonderful for offering a wide range of awesome courses for free, but that's where the excitement ends. Khan Academy gives you just a taste and nothing more. Great for the casual learner, though.
If you're not a casual learner and want to take your education more seriously, then Bloc.io is the one for you. Be prepared to shell out some big bucks, though. We're talking at least $4,000 here. Ouch. Furthermore, the program is 25 hours a week over the course of a few months. Simply put, you need to be dedicated to taking on the Bloc.io challenge. If you want something a little more casual, then McDonald's is always hiring.
In a world where skills are seemingly disappearing by the day, Skillshare is here for us. For just $10 a month, you get access to all the awesome skills on Skillshare. Learn to write a book, direct a movie, or build a pool. There are plenty of courses, and the numbers continue to grow.
This isn't the 1980s anymore. Sexy jobs are not lifeguards and Miami police. Now, everyone and their mother wants to be in data science. Udacity picked up on this trend, which is why it's such a good online educational option. Perhaps the best part is Udacity lets you pay in monthly installments. That way, you can learn on your own time and keep your second life intact.
