Shaw Academy: Enriching Yourself With New Ideas

     Years after graduating in college and started working, what have you become? Me, after four years only of working, I already feel tired and bored. I feel like life has become so monotonous.  The things I do and I know last week or last month are just the same things I do and I know today. I craved for something new. Something different.

     I wonder what else I can do aside from the usual Facebook browsing, twitting, and reading barbaric news update which I do every day. “I have to do something else”, I told myself. Thanks to Facebook, the Shaw Academy page magically came to my feed.

Learning Something New

     I bought a voucher for the Diploma in Digital Marketing. I thought it’s going to help me with my blogging plans. And, I just curious how the online class works.

     In my experience, it was really cool. If you catch the live class, you can ask or comment to the lecturer and to your classmates from all around the globe. Though mostly, I only watch the lecture video because the time for the live lecture is already 3 am here in our country. The good thing is, I can pause and replay it. At the end of the program, you may get a diploma.

     Nevertheless, learning something new gave mea refreshing feeling. It inspired me to try something new and different as an application of my learning. It gave me confidence, somehow, that what I’m doing is just right. It gave me ideas how to run my Facebook page, twitter, and even Instagram. It made me more productive.

  1. The first time I have heard about Shaw Academy was from a friend. I didn’t pay attention towards what she shared since I am not familiar with it. But after reading your post, I am now curious. I’ll check the site and to see what’s in store for me. Who knows, I might unlock hidden skills. 😉

  2. I think I am going to check this out some more. I think getting an online course is great and the diploma makes it official. Blogging, social media marketing and photoshop are all very interesting to me. You never said how much it costs though. Do all courses cost the same?

    1. Hello Fred. If you go over to the link, you will see all the courses they offer. The price for the course is 395EUR. If I’m not mistaken, yes, the price for all courses is just the same. Another good thing about it is that they also have a lifetime membership. With that, you can access all the courses they offer, including all the future courses they will offer. I’m not sure where is the link for the lifetime membership. They just emailed and offered it to me when I was enrolled in the digital marketing course. Perhaps, if you get a course maybe they will email you too. If my memory serve me right, they also have a promo (sort of a raffle), when you catch all the live discussion in your course, you will be eligible for that. They will have a draw and the winner will get a free lifetime membership. Sounds amazing, right?. I was not lucky so I’m saving for the lifetime membership 🙂

  3. they are offering interesting courses huh.. I was actually planning to try this kind of online courses last year but my schedules are quite conflicting.. I might give it a shot again this year… it’s nice to see that they also offer blogging and content marketing too
    thanks for sharing

  4. I feel the exact same way! Reason why I started blogging and why I’m getting my certification in Holistic Health Coaching. I’m one of those “never stop learning” type of people. I’m going to have to try this out. I use Skill Share right now. I’ll have to give Shaw Academy a looksie! 🙂

    1. Wow, congratulations te your certificate in coaching.
      Shaw Academy has lifetime membership also. With that you can access all their courses including the courses they are going to offer in the future. Fantastic, right? I’m saving for that now.

  5. I’m a big fan of online courses. I find myself taking classes once every 2 or 3 years or so, I don’t know, maybe I just like studying haha. There are a lot of awesome courses on here, especially for bloggers!

  6. These are such a good idea! It makes total sense that a topic like blogging or online marketing would be more suitable for flexible learning 🙂

  7. This is such a great way to learn some important skills. All of those diplomas involving digital marketing and new media are very important these days.

  8. I don’t really trust these online courses that promise you diplomas. The only online course that I have ever did and complete was the Google Squared, and that was a 6 months hard work, like proper school.

  9. I had been feeling like that lately but thankfully I am heading back to university to do my masters in a feild that interests me so I am really happy about that.
    I do like the idea of online learning, you can really broaden your skills and orizon really easily

      1. I am quite bright and easyly bored, so I constantly look for new stuff XD
        Hm, I’ll look into it. and Honestly all courses mentioned here looks interesting so..

        1. Yes, I also love them. I’m saving now for their lifetime membership. In that membership you can access all courses they offer including courses they will have in the future. I think that’s going to be a big savings!.

  10. Gosh, it feels like this is just what I need/have been looking for. If I could, I’d spend the rest of my life learning new stuff, new skills, reading *all the books*… as this is impossible (bills to pay, right?) I’ve been looking for online courses that would inspire me and teach me something new. Thank you for the heads up!

    1. Oh Francesca, I suggest you save up for this. Who knows, after completing a course you can do little business and earn more.
      By the way, they have this lifetime membership. 1 time bill to have access to all their courses as well as the future courses they are going to offer. I really want that. Let’s start saving now! 😊😊😊

  11. Sounds like an awesome opportunity for learning new things. Online schools are always welcome in my book, it’s always nice to learn more about the field you’re interested in without having to leave your home!
