Featured Courses is a  free publication you can read a new article every week, so for my first publication, I am going to provide you with a general article on what online courses are and their benefits. You will find my next post will be sharing specific online courses and what you can learn from them, and many of them will be freebies as my thank you for visiting Shop Online Courses.


What Is An Online Course

Please don’t be offended by me sharing what an online course is, I don’t mean to offend anyone I just thought this was a good place to start. Who knows maybe you will learn something new by reading my first post, so an online course basically is a learning class or course you can take online. The best part about this today you can learn just about anything your heart desires, and so the sky is the limit all depending on how high your goals might be. I am very big on learning with this method since this is how I taught myself to succeed with my own online business, and even though that was many years ago I really feel these can improve everyone’s life.


Free Online Courses

I am going to start with free online courses first, and the reason is I feel you can benefit from many of the free online courses before you will need to start paying out of your pocket. When I started my business these courses provided me the basic information I needed to get on the right track, and for many of you, these might be the only type of courses you will ever need to take to gain whatever skills or knowledge you are looking for.

  • Udemy
  • Coursera
  • EdX
  • Udacity
  • Skillshare
  • Codecademy


So these are my favorites for a nice variety of courses I recommend you start out with, and between all of these, I am sure you can find enough to interest you and keep you learning for a long time.  You will notice I inserted a link to Udemy, and that will take you to my Free Online Courses on my menu so you can see what topics Udemy provides you for free. I do receive a small commission from any purchases from my menu, and I use my commissions to maintain the Shop Online Courses website.

Featured Courses

The courses in this publication are free courses you can get started on as soon as you are motivated, so take your time checking out the courses in this article until you find the one that really interests you. I suggest you go with free self-paced courses if this is your first online course, and this will prevent you from being overwhelmed knowing you can go at your own speed. When you take your time and do say one section per day or so you will absorb more of the information, so try doing it this way to get started and choose something fun as your first free course to get you into a regular routine.

I have had a look at it and thinking of enrolling myself onto these fantastic courses which is much more flexible compared to attending a college or university.

    Many Thanks for this useful information.

    Kind Regards

  • Jeff,
    I had no idea you could take free courses online and had never heard of Udemy, Coursera, EdX, etc. Thanks for sharing this info! I’m really interested in learning more about the health effects of climate change and lifestyle medicine. Will definitely be looking into this!
