Modern Lessons offers free online learning of ‘real world’ skills.
Their current catalogue specializes in mini-courses for teachers, those new to technology, business owners, and startups. Lessons are combined with official guides from outside sources to create courses. There are classes on technology in the classroom, personal branding, social media, small business tools, software guides, and mobile device use.
Here are some of the courses they’re offering:
10 Free Web Tools Teachers Should Try Out
The Beginner’s Guide to Learnist
The Beginner’s Guide to Pinterest
How to Make a Professional Online Resume
Integrating the iPad into the Classroom (Advanced)
The course selection is limited at the moment, and you have to register to take courses (but it’s free to register).
