Mindsy – Premium Courses for Advanced Learning

Learning doesn’t stop on graduation day. Mindsy is an online platform that students of all ages and all skill levels can use to expand their horizons with online courses that focus on topics as varied as Pilates, computer programming, and even Latin literature.

Don’t limit yourself. With Mindsy, you can take as many online courses as you wish for one flat monthly fee. Just select the topics you’re interested in learning more about (like technology, design, crafts, personal growth, or sports, to name just a few), and click the “Start Learning” button. Mindsy will recommend courses based on your areas of interest. Click on a title to read more about the course, and click on individual video lectures to begin your lessons. Send messages to the instructor about any questions that pop up as you make your way through an online course. If you stumble across an instructor who seems particularly insightful, click on that person’s name to view other courses that he or she has taught.

Although Mindsy courses are not as in-depth or interactive as courses taught on competing e-learning websites, the platform makes up for that in its breadth of topics and overall ease-of-use. Students can watch online lessons about virtually any topic on their own time, and without having to schedule any classes in advance. If you’ve got knowledge to share, Mindsy could be an ideal place to share it. The platform is always on the lookout for new instructors with video courses or educational content geared toward online learning.
