The following is part one of our weekly series on Top Resources for Marketers.
Learning is a lifelong process. Without learning and development, we flounder. Technology passes us by. Potential lies undiscovered and dormant. Old skills stagnate and new ones fail ever to form.
With that in mind, today’s resource is: Udacity
Udacity’s mission is to democratize education through the offering of world-class higher education opportunities that are accessible, flexible, and economical (read: free). They offer free online classes and nanodegrees in a variety of different fields.
Their Digital Marketing Nanodegree is a 3-month program that gives you a full introduction to digital marketing, in conjunction with partners like Facebook, Google, MailChimp and Hootsuite.
For more experience marketers, they offer courses in artificial intelligence, data analytics, data science, machine learning, and more. These programs allow you to pick up a new skill or train for a higher-potential career opportunity.
In addition, they now offer programs for businesses to allow their employees access to a variety of Udacity courses, benefitting companies that do not have their own training programs in place.
For quality education that doesn’t cost you anything, marketers need look no further.
