Internet in Kenya has come a long way in the last 5 years or so. Data bundles have become affordable and broadband internet is spreading fast.
Online learning platforms (Udemy, Treehouse, Lynda etc) are now feasible if you have access to a computer/laptop.
I had an app idea a few months ago. I decided to learn and do it on my own instead of paying someone to do it for me. I opted for an Android programming course on Udemy. I am enjoying the content so far and the instructor seems to know his stuff.
I had enquired about the Android course from eMobilis and I was informed the price was 25,000/= + registration fees. The course takes 1 month.
The course on Udemy cost a whopping 1,200/= and it is regularly updated. It has 50 hours + of video content I get to keep forever.
Anyone with any experience learning on these platforms? How was it?
Do you think you can skip college and learn from these online courses? (Design, App programming, game development, video production etc)
