For people looking for things to do, there are some great - and free - online courses you can take. 

 

UBC: https://science.ubc.ca/community/online

 

U of T: https://www.edx.org/school/university-torontox

 

MIT: https://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm

 

As our friend @smithers joe says, aint you got no learnin'? 

 

Post others that you know of, lets get something good out of all this. 

 

Thanks Jim!

 

Just signed up for one right now, Behavioural Econ through UofT. 

 

 

Edit: Also a tip to anyone doing it.

 

If you pay to get the verified certificate (which I did) add the honey app to your browser, it'll automatically search coupons. I ended up getting $20 off so that was nice.

If we go do free online learning, but then come back to CDC, do they cancel each other out?

One step forward, two... :bigblush:

Also, for any newbies out there who were planning to finger cook today but realized everything is closed,

Really good idea and something we should all consider. 

 

Mad props Jimmy.

While I do appreciate the spirit of this thread, I don't think adding more online courses to my current course load (that's being switched from classroom based to online) is a great idea. I will say some of these courses look a tad more interesting than the ones I'm taking! :lol:

Fair enough.  Feel like many in the working world (myself included) would appreciate the time to add new skills though!

Maybe it's a time to learn a new hobby too?

Interestingly enough, I've taken on learning mandarin on the side before all this. I've just added a bit more time to it.

I might do all 5 of the Psych courses through UBC just to add some extra credentials to my Social Service Diploma.

Great thread, Great idea!
