Free resources to learn to blog, touch type or connect to informal learning groups

The internet is an amazing place.  Almost anything we ever wanted to learn is contained in it's pathways but sometimes we need a guide to find our way.  There are many on-line courses, email courses and video courses available.  Some of them do not cost money and are also worth the time.  I want to share a few resources that I have found helpful.

  • If you want to create a blog and make your blog more visible try  He has a course that comes to your inbox via email.  The lessons are short, less than 5 minutes, but the information is useful. Even though it's designed for developers the information can be used in a wide range of disciplines. 
  • If you want to learn how to touch type, I recommend  They do not start with the home row instead this program starts with 7 letters scattered around the keyboard.  A short line of semi-English words are posted at the top of the keyboard.  The player is scored based on speed and accuracy.  This program is top notch and it's also free.
  • If you are looking for ways to learn about technology or anything else for that matter is your friend.  there are many groups that meet to talk about and build skills.  The meetup site here in Nashville has over 50 technology related groups.  There are other groups as well that you can learn about by connecting with your affinity community.
When you try these resources we would love to hear about your experience. Also, please share free/low cost resources which have been helpful to you.  Have a joyful day, Amy
