Without a book. So many online courses, so little time. Beefing up some skills that went dormant in my last professional incarnation, so I can get ready for the next. I thought some of these might be interesting to share, so here goes. Most are free or have a nominal fee associated with going beyond the introductory/refresher courses, but IMHO, they’re well worth paying for. I’m well into the Google Analytics Fundamentals right now and it’s terrific!
1. Google Analytics: Digital Fundamentals. Click here.
2. Google Analytics: Platform Principles. Click here.
3. General Assembly: UX Design Principles. Click here.
4. General Assembly: Maximizing your LinkedIn Potential. Click here. (It’s today! It’s in NYC, though … The title is kind of wonky, but LinkedIn continues to be a lifeline for me, so I’m expecting this class could be useful for folks looking to synergize, leverage, maximize, or, do whatever to their networks!)
5. General Assembly: Design Thinking. Click here. Kind of pricey, but so timely … Again, if you’re in NY …
6. Coursera: Art & Activity. Click here. It’s a ways off, but I think it’ll be a good one and interesting/useful for folks engaged in consumer insights development. The tools we have at our disposal today don’t get people as engaged and invested as they could — can we look to non-traditional immersive experiences to help us build more in-depth understanding of people and their motivations? Maybe. We’ll see.
Happy Little Friday! And, happy learning!
