If you like taking an online course
1. Edx – There area number of online resources that offer free couress but I’ve found EdX to be most useful for my usage. They offer diverse course selection from Ivy League schools. It’s free and the topics are fascinating. It’s a great way to get introduced to a new topic or try out a subject that you’ve always had some interest but was not sure if you would like it or not. Coursera offers some good options too.
2. Tech Change – Tech Change offers a number of interesting topics related to development and technology. While many of their courses require a payment, there are some free courses like these – Introduction to Mobile Money, Gender in Political Transition Environments, and The Art of Advocacy. I’ve tried one of their courses and loved it. You gain access to network with top experts and a wider global TechChange community of over 3,000 participants from over 100 countries representing over 700 organizations across sectors. They also focus on offering an interactive and dynamic learning experience by offering weekly scheduled video chats and video interviews.
