Learn Something New Today - Free Online Courses You Should Take Today

I believe in self-development as I am a product of one.

In this new month, utilize your phone, (most especially your subscription) in developing a new skill or two.

If you are employed or looking for employment, you need to learn or develop your skills in the free online courses I put together here.

Microsoft Excel

It's high time that you actually learn what to do with spreadsheets.

When you were in school, maybe you used Excel to plug in a few number tables or add two cells together. However, Excel is so much more complex than that. For example, did you know that the program can do all of the following:
  • Organize data in an easy-to-navigate way
  • Do basic and complex mathematical functions so you don’t have to
  • Turn piles of data into helpful graphics and charts
  • Analyze data and make forecasting predictions
  • Create, build, and edit pixelated images (yes, creatives use it, too!)

Long story short? There’s a lot more to the program than you probably even realized, and there’s a use for it no matter what you do. It’s more about problem-solving in an organized manner than it is about rows of data, and this shift in perspective will allow you to think more critically about how Excel can help you.

Coding is applicable to multiple facets of life. For example, coding forces you to break up a problem into a series of smaller steps and then logically create a program that solves them. This same approach can be applied to virtually every problem in life.
