If you’re thinking about setting your New Year’s resolutions for 2018, the new year is a great time to learn something new. Whether it’s to improve your job prospects, start up your own business, or help your blog succeed, there are plenty of online courses available.
I’ve listed some online training course websites below which offer some great certifications and resources to help you learn online from the comfort of your own home. There’s every kind of online course you can think of from Digital Marketing, Social Media and Project Management courses to Photography, App Building and Web Design.

I’ve completed a few online courses with Shaw Academy now – the Diploma in Social Media Marketing and both the Diploma in Digital Marketing and the Advanced Diploma in Digital Marketing. As well as marketing courses they also cover Photoshop, Blogging, Web Design and lots of other online courses.
The courses are made up of weekly live webinars where you get to interact and ask the trainer questions. There are practical lessons as you go along so you can put your learning into practice. At the end of the courses is an online test and you find out your score right away. You can also go back and watch the videos again and there are lots of other online resources available. I’ve found Shaw Academy really beneficial and currently have a list of other courses to complete as soon as I have time.
You can also get your first course free, so it’s definitely worth a look:
Instagreater provides some fantastic Digital Marketing and Social Media resources for online learning.

I’m signed up to the Photography Starter Kit Classes in the new year and am really looking forward to it!
The classes are affordable and if you refer a friend you can also get $15 off your next class.
If you want to study an IT course online and get certified then Master of Project Adacemy is one to check out. The courses include Microsoft Project® Training, Cisco Certification and Project Management Professional Certification Training amongst other IT and Project Management courses.
If you want to build an app for your business or something brand new to earn money from then My App Builder is a great online learning resource for beginners. You can build an iPhone or Android app in minutes with this software. Definitely handy if, like me, you have no idea where to start when it comes to creating an app!
If you are looking to learn something new this year then hopefully one of these online learning sites will help you do just that. If you’ve used any before do let me know in the comments below!
