Learn Something New Online For Free

Self Improvement

Learn how to become a more chilled, thoughtful person in the busy modern world.

Learn a new language completely free of charge. As well as the website, they also have mobile apps so you can learn on the go.

3. Spreeder.

Up your productivity by learning to speed read.

4. Brain Pickings.

A good guide in how to live your life creatively and intellectually.

5. Body Building.

I know you might be sceptical but hold on a second. Whether you want to be massive or lean, you need to have a plan. And this is the place to get it. Workout plans, nutrition advice, friendly forums. Did I mention that it’s all entirely free?

6. 43 Folders.

Want to improve your work life and productivity? Head on over here.

7. EdX.

Free courses on just about any subject. Learn HTML 5, Chemistry, economics. The choices are endless.

Video Tutorials & Learning

1. VideoJug.

Want to make a fidget spinner? How about storm trooper cookies? VideoJug has tutorials on loads of different subjects.

2. Academic Earth.

From maths to social work, you’ll find something to interest you here.

3. Ted.

A list of video learning sites would not be complete without Ted. Talks by experts on subjects ranging from job interviews to why ambitious women have flat heads (I kid you not, this video was featured on the front page of Ted as I wrote this!).

4. Adobe TV.

This one is a little specialised but for those wanting to get to grips with the Adobe suite of programs, it’s essential. The learning curve of photoshop, after effects et al can be quite steep, but the reward is worth it.

5. Howcast.

A massively comprehensive library of how to videos.

6. Khan Academy.

Their own description is this: You can learn anything. For Free. For everyone. Forever. I think that pretty much sums it up!

DIY & Skills

1. eHow.

Pretty much has a “how to” on everything. Crafts, repair, food and drink. There are even guides on how to make an ice cream social. Should you be so inclined.

2. iFixit.

Have a broken camera? How about a video game console or a phone screen? Usually, this would necessitate a repair or a replacement. But before you do that, head on over to iFixit. They have guides on how to fix just about anything electronic. And most of the time it’s a lot easier than you think.

3. WikiHow.

Another great resource for how to’s. From lowering blood pressure, making recipes and cutting your hair, there’s a guide for it.

4. Instructables.

I love this site. It’s so well laid out. You can find help with making costumes, woodworking, electronics and more.

5. Hackaday.

This site is for “hacking” electronics. So that Raspberry Pi you got and haven’t done anything with? Now’s the time to have some fun with it.

6. Wired How-To.

I enjoy reading this. It has all sorts of tips and tricks you might not have ever even considered you might need to know.

7. Makezine.

Great DIY projects ranging from leather working, electronics and woodworking.
