eLearning courses are a great opportunity to go in-depth on a subject of interest. They’re also a great way to explore a new subject of interest, add course credits, or simply learn a new skill. However, some subjects can run extremely expensive. Business and sales courses, for example, may run up to $999 per course. There are many courses that will not set you back much, and may even be free. These courses are usually arranged by subject.
Design courses are very prevalent in eLearning platforms. Since design is largely a matter of personal opinion when it comes to aesthetics, very few opinions are valued higher than other opinions. There are definitely paid design courses. Most of them are specifically designed for Adobe Photoshop, or other primary design programs. They are usually aimed at those who want to learn design as a career, rather than as a hobby. Still, there are many excellent design programs available for free on eLearning platforms, if you’re willing to look.
Math and Science
Due to the fact that most teachers are in the nature of being giving sorts of people, many of the math and science courses you can find online are free. In fact, that’s one of the few niches where it’s more difficult to find paid courses than free ones. Some websites, like Udacity, even offer these courses not just for free, but for college credit as well, meaning that you can get a college-level education in math and science at your own leisure and transfer it to an actual four-year institution.
Art and Photography
For whatever reason, art and photography courses are generally available for free on most eLearning platforms. This is another time when the subject matter is very up to interpretation, and people don’t feel comfortable charging a high price for their goods or services. Not every art and photography course is just “Take better pictures”. Some deal with highly specific subjects such as flash, and others deal with the ins and outs of photography-as-business world. Still others are very technological and hands-on, such as dealing with the topic of how to produce prints in a darkroom. If you want to learn some excellent photographic basics, an eLearning course can be a fantastic way to start, especially since they’re so often free of charge to the student.
History teachers know that their lessons are dull. They try everything they can think of to get their students engaged. However, this rarely works the way they want it to, because of one thing: time. History teachers are very limited by the time they have in order to get their students up to par for standardized lessons. This means they can rarely focus for a long time on one of their favorite subjects. Teachers and enthusiasts of history love going into detail and using multimedia in their presentations. Because of this, history lessons are often available all over the Internet, in-depth and for free.
