Staying productive in times of crisis

The word ‘crisis’ perfectly describes today’s situation - but a crisis also offers challenges and opportunities we wouldn’t notice under normal circumstances. Many businesses have implemented online solutions to work and collaborate productively from home. The new insights they are gaining now will continue to benefit them long after the corona crisis has passed. There’s a silver lining to the crisis for individual employees as well: they finally have time to freshen up their knowledge and skills.

Learn new skills online with MOOC

Have you wanted to learn something new for a while, but never had the time to do it? Think of coding or programming, for example, or learning more about psychology. Maybe you’re eager to learn another language? Whatever your plans are, working from home helps you to free up time, now that you’re no longer being held back by your bursting work agenda.

With the help of high-quality digital tools, you can learn from the comfort of your own home. You don’t even need to look far: there are plenty of online learning platforms that offer a wide range of useful learning paths through the MOOC principle (Massive Open Online Courses).

Three tried-and-tested training platforms

You’ve undoubtedly seen at least one video preview for a LinkedIn Learning class. This platform offers courses that focus on practical and creative skills, such as soft skills that are relevant for a wide range of sectors.

Platforms such as Coursera and FutureLearn collaborate with universities and educational institutions worldwide to offer quality academic trainings. Their topics range from business and computer sciences to health, social sciences and much more. The learning programmes are clearly structured and include an engaging mix of text, video, quizzes and social learning (forums).

Udacity is a similar platform, brought to you by the Computer Sciences department at Stanford University. The content of their courses focuses on technology and business.

Encourage your teammates to learn online

The abovementioned platforms offer free as well as paid courses. The paid version usually offers more and lets you earn official certificates that you can mention on your CV. Which course you choose depends on what you’re looking for. Our advice: just take a moment to browse the platforms. At the very least, they’ll give you inspiration. Be sure to share your experience with colleagues as well!
