Online Self-Improvement Classes You Should Consider

  • Business & Social


In life, there is nothing better to invest in than yourself. While your 2020 may not have gone the way you wanted it to, 2021 gives us the fresh start we all need! Let go of all your frustrations and embrace the new beginnings January brings with it. And what better way to kickstart a new year than by bettering yourself with some online courses for self-improvement?

Online self-improvement courses are great because they teach you intangible skills you can use in both your personal and professional life.

Here are our favorite online courses for self-improvement you should definitely try in 2021.

1. Coursera

Coursera is a website that offers a wide variety of online courses, including self-improvement classes, you can accomplish in one day. Each class is roughly 8 hours long, but you can pause the videos whenever you need a break. Some of its most popular courses include Sustainable Development Goals, Nutrition and Lifestyle in Pregnancy, Introduction to International Criminal Law, and Psychological First Aid.


2. Harvard University

This may come as a surprise to many, but prestigious ivy-league school Harvard University does in fact offer online courses for FREE! You can attend some of the same courses as famous alumni such as Mark Zuckerberg, E.E. Cummings, Helen Keller, and Natalie Portman. You can also opt to pay a fee for a verified certificate. The course duration varies from four to 15 weeks, depending on the subject matter. They offer subjects from the following categories: Art and Design, Humanities, Health and Medicine, Justice, Science, Computer Science, Data Science, Mathematics, Programming, Business, Social Sciences, and Education and Teaching.


3. Udemy

If you have the money to spare, Udemy offers paid training courses for self-improvement. Our personal favorite is Richard Butler’s “The 7 Day +1 Supercharge Your Life Challenge. Goal Setting.” According to Butler, you can start making changes in your life in as little as 8 days. He discusses how to identify problem areas that hinder you from progressing and teaches you about time management, beliefs, and what you should do when you feel like giving up.


4. Alison

Have you ever noticed how certain friends can convince you to do almost anything? Whether it’s going out with them for drinks on a weeknight, loaning them extra cash, or skipping an important meeting – you just can’t seem to say no to them. That’s the power of persuasion and effective communication. If you’ve always wanted to be able to be as convincing as they are (but use your powers for good, of course), Alison has a free Persuasion and Motivation course that can level up your communication skills, which you can use to ace your job interview, presentation, or meeting! It also gives you a fascinating look into theories such as Stockholm syndrome and brainwashing.

Thanks to technology, there are so many online courses you can take at your convenience! We hope you find one here that piques your interest and helps you on the road to self-improvement.
