The COVID-19 pandemic presents unique challenges for all of us who are homebound and socially-distancing. However, this time also creates an opportunity to learn new skills for career development, personal satisfaction, and general wellbeing.
Major universities such as Harvard and Brown, in addition to online platforms like Coursera, are offering free courses in subject matters ranging from computer programming to the history of religion. For those of you finding yourself home-cooking now more than ever, organizations such as Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Cooking School are offering free online cooking lessons for beginner and experienced cooks alike, and Bridget Lancaster's America's Test Kitchen has one for kids. And, if you've always wanted to learn how to play an instrument but just haven't had the time, there are free online music classes for you to choose from.
