Internet shouldn’t be just about social media gossip, try some challenges in “free” courses
There is so much you can do and benefit from the internet if you know the right places to browse. I have explored many positive uses of the social media myself including those on monetization, education and research.
But money aside, you can also get certificates, diplomas and even degrees on the internet for free. I understand “free” belittles the seriousness of school, but having gone through some of the content offered by these platforms myself, I can assure you that, “free” knowledge isnt bad knowledge, after all.
Below are some of the platforms you can study for free and get enlightened on many topics while adding to your list of papers.
