Here is a mini riff from me as I received lots of emails this last week asking me about online courses. Everyone knows that I take them and enjoy them. I am actually pretty careful about which ones I take. In this video, I give you my thoughts and some criteria that I use in my decision making process. Sometimes I need to learn a new skill, sometimes I need to challenge myself personally and sometimes I just need some inspirational fun breaking it down like that helps.
I would love to hear your thoughts. Online education in the form of e-courses are relatively new and each download, class and course ends up being SO different, it can be difficult making decisions! Be nice in the comments…I am not here to judge any courses but I do think an open dialogue about whether or not they work for you is a good one to have. I do know I have signed up for continuing ed at Rhode Island School of Design (fabulous to live so close) and then not been able to drag my behind to late night courses in the middle the winter. Ugh. Working from home has become a great thing but I also like to meet people face to face. What do you do?
