Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite websites for online learning to help fill in some of that time at home.
I work during the day, but still have a little time to read blogs, update and post on my blog, and still have some free time to learn a new craft or skill. Right now it’s all about learning how to master my Cricut Air but for a new skill could mean many things.
Here are a few great sites to help you learn a new task, refresh a lost skill, or fall in love with something new.
Creative Live is an online education platform that broadcasts live classes to an international audience. The company has dual headquarters in Seattle and San Francisco, with four in-house production studios. Since 2010, over two billion minutes of course instruction have been watched by millions of students. [Source Wikepdia]
“From courses in photography and filming to creating your own podcast, or starting a business on Etsy. There is a course for you on CreativeLive.”
Blueprint is where makers come to do what they love best. Learn more today and start exploring your craft now! Learn and try project plans. Creativity is made easy. Check out courses in Quilting, Knitting, and so much more. [Source Bluprint]
“I found my very first Cricut project on Blueprint as well as a few crochet tutorials, and I found it very useful.”
Creative Bug is your go-to resource for high-quality, on-trend arts, and crafts instructional videos. For as little as 16¢ a day you get on-demand access to our full library 1,000+ art and craft classes for artists and makers of all levels. [Source Creative Bug]
“I’m subscribed to Creative Bug’s YouTube channel because I enjoy the style of the videos, and I love their content. They also have hundreds of free courses to take advantage of.
MasterClass is an immersive online experience that offers access to genius by allowing anyone to take online classes with the world’s best. Our instructors include Christina Aguilera, Serena Williams, James Patterson, and more. These video courses are 100% exclusive – MasterClass produces the courses directly with the instructors to capture exactly what the masters want to teach.
“If you’re looking to splurge Master Class may be the thing for you. It would be at the top of the price ranges for these courses, but I felt like it was worth it. I gifted my daughter a Master Class taught by Samuel L. Jackson, because of his diversity the roles he plays in various projects.
A Beautiful Mess is a lifestyle company focused on creating happiness through a homemade lifestyle, founded by sisters Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman.
“I have been an avid reader of A Beautiful Mess blog for over 10 years and their creative process has been amazing. I’m constantly going back to their blog for tips and inspiration.
They went from a little blog with a motto of “Make-Something” to becoming designers, creators, and book authors. To anyone starting a blog they are nothing less than a true inspiration.”
I realize that in today’s climate you can watch anything you want via YouTube. Trust me I’m a current student of University YouTube. (lol) However, there are some courses of study where I need structure, and reference materials so I will go to CreativeLive, or Blueprint.
You can also find hundreds of free online courses via Open Culture which is a marketplace for college courses taught globally. I’ve added a few Art History courses (via iTunes podcasts) to refresh my memory for all the courses I took in college.
Are you taking on any new skills or partaking a course during you time at home? Let me know in the comments. Thanks again for visiting my blog, and have a great day. — Peace
