How To Access Knowledge Online


30 March 2021

Our computers, tablets, or smartphone hold a lot of helpful information that can increase our knowledge. Sometimes, we don’t imagine having access to unlimited learning resources; we can read or listen to any book, show, or song and watch any documentaries or movies we want by clicking a button. If we pick up a new skill (like learning another language, studying life sciences, or enrolling in an online course or program to meet our needs), the internet can be helpful when used correctly.

Global Edge, as a global recruitment firm that works with thousands of candidates daily and understands their professional needs, has selected some exciting ways to easily access knowledge online without spending much:

Enroll in an online language course: Find a language course that best fits your needs; some online educational resources offer basic language classes and tutoring for free, while other websites, like universities, provide comprehensive language courses at low prices. Find a language course that best fits your needs, find an online tutor to measure your progress and give extensive feedback, listen to foreign music, or watch foreign films for practice.

Enroll in an online course: Most universities nowadays offer free online courses that anyone can learn from. To get enrolled in a class, email a local or international university of your desire to see if they offer independent study courses where you learn at your own pace online. Many online resources provide free study materials in mathematics, sciences, humanities, and other subjects. Still, they can also offer free lecture series to listen to and MOOC (massive open online courses) that are educational courses to anyone who wants to learn, with no limit on class attendance or geographical location.

Access books, Films, or Music: Expand your music horizon by exploring new genres, checking classic movies, foreign films, and documentaries, reading books released in the public domain, and listening to audiobooks. Most of these contents are available online with just a click on your mobile.

Join Online learning clubs: This is an easy yet efficient way to participate in interactive debates or conversations on topics of your interest; applications and sites like Clubhouse, noisy classroom, or Edeb8 are some of the recommended for this purpose.

Research Online: Use Google as a jumping-off point because it is constantly edited by authoritative users and hobbyists alike. Focus on peer-reviewed articles that experts verified before publication and are most accurate and trustworthy. Search for traditional sources because they will have more credible content and access online research databases for articles, reviews, and other academically-valid sources.
