In this current climate, do you find yourself with a bit more time on your hands? Many people are trying to find ways to be productive in their downtime; and capitalizing on various e-learning platforms offering their services digitally could fill that space. Many organizations are offering online learning, career development, personal development, and even conferences, virtually.
LinkedIn offers a free trial month through their platform called LinkedIn Learning for individuals, which include courses anywhere from learning how to use different software, specific subjects and topics, to continuing education units. Additionally, SHRM and other companies offer educational courses for their members, which are free or discounted.
Due to social distancing measures, conferences you may have attended in-person are being creative and are bringing the conference to your remote office, specifically, the mobile app, Whova, Inc. Whova is an event and conference application with live and interactive events from Q&A’s, demos, networking, and live chats.
Taking advantage of online tools is something to look into during this period of uncertainty, it can only positively benefit your personal and professional development.
