I am a big believer in lifetime learning! I am a learner by nature and am always eager to read or take online courses to learn. When I found Udemy, I was amazing at the vast amount of online courses they offered for FREE or a very reasonable price! They have over 40,000 courses and over 12 million students!

In our family, we have used many of the courses and loved them. I have gone through a few web design classes and some nutrition ones, my middle school daughter has done some of the art and language courses and my elementary ages son is about to start a handwriting course.

I can’t say enough good things about this great online learning for little ones. This program is how my son learned how to read as a 4 year old! Trust me when I say I take no credit for the fact that he was reading Harry Potter books in 2nd grade, I owe it all to ABCMouse.com! The interactive games and activities are so fun that you will have a hard time getting your child off the computer, but you will be amazed at how quickly you will see the learning translate to actually reading books on their own.

They are currently running an incredible sale… jump on it now, it will be the best $45 you spend all year.


Do you have any favorite ways to learn online?
