Free e-learning

I didn’t post anything for a while, so I decided to put here whatever.

The first choice pointed e-learning, so I decided not to search further.

There is plenty of options if u decide to experiment with your knowledge at home. Here I provide a list of the websites, courses, channels I know and made a use of at least once in my time.


GENERAL KNOWLAGE
Coursera – a lot of material in various subjects. Music, Philosophy, Mathematics, WebDevelopment, omg so much maybe no need for parties and bitches… https://www.coursera.org/
EdX – on a way similar to Coursera. They’re designed taking a peers review system as fundamental. The main advantage of both EdX and Coursera is that u can take any course entirely for free, extra fee for a certificate. Dunno about their validation, never bought one. Language: english, sometimes subtitles available. https://www.edx.org/
Open-culture – u can search through a branch of free tutorials or lectures here. Search by the subject or name. Various languages. http://www.openculture.com/


WEB DEVELOPMENT
Codecademy– very basics of webdev. You learn on examples, but as u follow instructions, not much u really learn. https://www.codecademy.com/
Sololearn- also teh basic things. A bit of an explanation in names and so, but no practice. https://www.sololearn.com/
W3Schools– much more content then in the previous two. Now I’m exploring. That’s as far the best handout. https://www.w3schools.com/
FreeCodeCamp– just got there. Will see. Looks pretty consoltant and quite more advanced then ex Codecademy. Has it’s own community, also actively present on GitHub. Fingers crossed! https://www.freecodecamp.com/


YouTube CHANNELS
Stanfordhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-EnprmCZ3OXyAoG7vjVNCA (I especially recommend dr. Sapolsky lectures in human behavior)


A CO PO POLSKU?
Jak do tej pory korzystałam jedynie z tutoriali na YT.
Kanał, który polecam to RS elektronika:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3TAqUdZld-6B76GqrFEV8g


One more cathegory:
LANGUAGES
Duolingo– The provide cathegories, where u listen, speak and type words. I was using for a short perios, but switched to Memrize. U can def learn a bit, but I do not think it’s the best choice if you’re a bit higher then basics. Eventhoug I have found there words I do not understand, I suffered with lack of real data examples. https://www.duolingo.com/ 
Memrise– as u can guess it’s about memorising new words. It was designed to show u mems to make it easier (u can also create your own). In real world I didn’t use them much, but from time to time they were handy indeed. I was using Memrise for half a year and I must say it was working, but: the lack of examples in real sentences make it quite an abstract knowledge. https://www.memrise.com/ 
AnkiDroid– here the idea is that you are downloading a word pack (or create your own) and just like in Memory game you guess the translation. I’ve downloaded a version with the whole sentences in German, quite cool to get used to the accent? But in fact it lack the task for you to do: would be awesome to listen to the sentence AND OUGHT TO WRITE IT DOWN, not only understand it. Maybe I just didn’t find an appropirate pack. Yet I find it a better solution for eg. improving my English (which is on a much higher level, then German). Maybe I should create my own pack, but as far I put it on a side, daman. Just realised I miss learning languages. https://apps.ankiweb.net




In fact it’s hard to keep on track with all the good available. Future of education, is it or isn’t? It’s undoubtedly hard to be a self learner. I find it difficult and constantly feel I get out of focus because of lack of OBLIGATORY deadlines. What about menthorship? Never had. Am I determined? I am constantly afraid I’m not. Trying is not enough.
It’s quite my experiment. I had nothing to do with computers, electronics, nothing alike. I graduated fine arts high school. Where I will get with all those resources?


For skyrocketing motivation to all the self learners.
