Online Courses for Aspiring Authors

Learn4LifeDid you miss KDL’s annual writers conference last weekend? Still looking to learn about author-ly stuff? Check this out:

Learn4Life features over 300 instructor-led online courses focused on professional development, technology skills and personal enrichment. New sessions start every month, and each 6-week course offers well-crafted lessons, expert online instruction and interaction with fellow students in a lively discussion area.

These types of classes can cost hundreds of dollars to take from a for-profit company, but they are available for free with your KDL card. Here are just some of the wide range of courses available:

Two lessons are released each week during the 6-week class session, and each lesson is estimated to take 2 hours to complete. A certificate of completion is available at the end of each course, which may be accepted as proof of continuing education by some workplaces or institutions. There is no penalty for not finishing a course, and there are no limits on how many you can sign up to take. See all offerings here. The next sessions begin April 16.

Watch a guided tour video or try it out yourself – just select the Reference Resources tab > Research Databases > the Online Learning category > Learn4Life.
