E-learning opens endless opportunities to adults for personal and professional growth, in a way that doesn’t demand exclusive organisational measures from the learner’s side. With a mobile device connected to the internet, you can enrich your knowledge in a chosen field at any time that's convenient for you and from any place (we suspect that as an expat you will particularly appreciate the flexibility). But what are the fields that you can explore with e-learning? Expat.com is introducing four sectors, which you can further delve into with e-learning.

Develop  your skills

Do you feel unmotivated at work because your ideas aren’t taken seriously? Have you already tried to earn a promotion but it hasn’t happened? Maybe it’s time for you to consider taking your skills to the next level — and e-learning courses offer a variety of classes and programs that can help you do exactly that. So whether you lack project management, international communication, or leadership skills, discuss possible e-learning options with your employer or manager, or even better, take the initiative to enroll into a course to unleash your potential.

Learn how to use a software

From our work’s computer to our personal mobile device, we are constantly using some type of software, which makes our work and everyday-life easier. Depending on our professional roles and responsibilities, we naturally familiarise ourselves with a few select software programs while we have little or no understanding at all of other existing software. However, this shouldn’t be detrimental to our knowledge and progress — maybe you are an accountant who excels at Dynamics software but would like to spend your free time editing photos and videos, of which you have very little knowledge and experience. E-learning can give you the tools to educate yourself in different fields, which can lead to a more fulfilled personal and professional life.

Redirect your career

With e-learning you can reimagine your work life and even make the professional changes you have been longing for. Whether you want to quit your nine to five and become a digital nomad, or you have realised that the law studies you did were actually your parents’ dream but never yours, e-learning offers affordable, convenient, and time-effective solutions for a smooth transition from one career to another. However, we recommend that before you throw yourself into new subjects of study, give it some thought and do some research regarding future employers and potential roles for you.

Boost your personal growth

E-learning is vastly popular with employees’ training and businesses’ success due to the high standards of education you can achieve via e-learning, the flexibility it allows, and the low costs involved when compared to traditional methods of learning. However, aside from business-related courses, e-learning also offers a variety of courses on personal growth, such as negotiating conflict, meditation, maintaining your identity in the digital age, and much more. Whenever you feel like treating yourself with a bit of new knowledge and investing in yourself, which will help you become a better person, we suggest you skim through e-learning programs for inspiration.
