The top 10 sites to learn online

Maybe you don't know that to learn you don't need to buy books or go to school, but there are plenty of online resources thanks to which you can greatly increase your knowledge on every front.

In this article you will find a list with the best sites, English and Italian, in which you can find videos, articles, free resources through which learn online in a different way. The sectors of these resources range from information technology, science, to learning a new language. And all this simply thanks to an internet connection and to so much (so much) passion and strength of will.

Given that it is now a must to get away with English, I have decided to include many English sites in this list since they are the best provided and of the highest quality, I assure you that it will be worth making an extra effort to understand the language, given the quality of the content you will learn.

1.Khan Academy

This site offers, after registering, the possibility of studying Mathematics, Sciences (physics, biology, chemistry …), Economics, Art and humanities, Computer Science and offers many other resources of all kinds.

I highly recommend this site, which is not the first one I mention to you, because I am finding it very well. It also offers the possibility to track progress. In addition to lessons and tutorials, this site is also very rich in exercises to test yourself and learn online.

Recommended especially for a more advanced and in-depth study.

A site perhaps a little less suitable than the previous one for a scholastic learning, but I think it satisfies many passions and personal curiosities, given the specificity of its contents. The resources range from literature to logic, to social sciences. All of course to learn online for free, with registration.

Also available is the Coursera application for Android and iOS that you can find on official stores or on the site linked in the title.

Recommended for the most curious and passionate.

3.Open Culture

This site, as can be easily understood from the name, a portal full of insights, courses and guides, of course, everything made available to us for free to learn online. If you click on the title link to redirect you to a specific page on the site, or a section that lists 1150 free courses to learn online from the best universities. Courses that would cost thousands of euros, and that are made available to you for free (in English), so why should you miss this opportunity?

4.Academic Earth

On this site, by clicking on the item courses It is possible to access a catalog of subjects and disciplines, full of courses and free guides. More than 750 online courses. I also recommend this site a lot, especially to those who are fond of some discipline or just curious. To study in depth a discipline, I recommend other resources, without of course taking anything away from Academic Earth.

Nearly 700 courses made available free of charge, organized by subject, difficulty, language and type. Undoubtedly one of the best sites among those so far cited for learning online, especially because the source of such courses is certain, that is they come from some of the best universities. Most courses are obviously in English.

An English site that receives more than 2 million monthly visits, with over 2,250 courses in various disciplines. Definitely recommended for those who want to increase their culture but above all to deepen some of the themes of the sector they prefer. The courses range from engineering to social sciences, including education.

7.Code Accademy

As you probably understand from the name of the site, by navigating you can learn, interactively, to program. I think this site is much better than the competitors because it doesn't just give lessons or share free courses, but it makes you learn by trying. Certainly to try if you are a beginner with programming, or you have even the slightest desire to try to see how it is programmed.

So far I've only mentioned sites that allow you to learn and learn general topics online, but you'll wonder, and if I wanted to learn how to speak a new language? Do not despair, there are many free online resources that are right for you, the one that I think is best is called Duolinguo, a site (with its application) that through many exercises, a well-maintained profile, the progress track will stimulate you to learn, in a very short time, the basis of many new languages. Being free, I advise you not to be discouraged after the first failures and bad results and to keep trying. With this sitomi I am finding very well. If you don't like it as a site, I recommend an alternative before giving up: Babbel (free site just as valid).

You will undoubtedly come across a video published by Ted Talks, an information portal of the highest level, quality and utility. In addition to the video conferences on the website, there is a section called TEDEdu in which hundreds of lessons, guides and free courses are kept that will undoubtedly allow you to deepen many issues.

10. Oilproject

The sites mentioned so far are practically all in English, the only Italian site dedicated to learning that I would recommend Oilproject. A site where hundreds of guides and courses are collected, in textual and visual format. All very useful and well done. I tried it for a few months and I find it full of insights and tutorials suitable especially for the most curious and for those who want to learn more about some issues. In addition, by providing the possibility to register, the site offers the tracking of progress, courses and everything you perform. Definitely recommended.
