Any subject you are interested in; you will find a course related to that.
Listen to Podcasts. Podcasts are a great source of entertainment and another way through which you can learn something new, though they are mostly about real-life stuff. Examples include discussion on the political situation of the country, true crime, true stories, etc. They are also about personal growth in scenarios where you can learn about money management and how to get yourself out of debt. There are also podcasts about time management to manage your productivity.
Podcasts can also be downloaded for offline listening later. You can play them when you don’t have an internet connection or when you are in a waiting line.
Read Comics or E-Books. There are several ways for you to read comics online, and that too, for free! They’re not just amateur comics that are made to be freely available, rather you can also read comics from Marvel, DC, and Vertigo without having to pay for it.
The same goes for e-books. Plenty of websites offer books that you can buy or rent, and most of them offer books to read for free. By reading e-books, you will be entertained for hours. You can even carry a couple of books around with you on your mobile phone or laptop.
Build a Wish List. This might sound like an unhealthy obsession, but if carried out with discipline and organization, it can turn out to be a fun and even money-saving activity. Think of all the stuff that you are interested in buying, browse through them, research each potential product and add them to your Wish List. Here’s a tip; don’t buy any of these products unless they have been on your wish list for a month. If after a month, you still want the same product, then go ahead and add it to your cart for purchasing.
Photoshop. If you are into photography or art and have a knack for creativity, you can find a lot of websites that allow you to do photoshop. You can edit, modify or manipulate photos any way that you want to for your own leisure. If you turn out to be really good at using photoshop, you can also do this as freelance work, where you will be paid to design the photos just the way your clients want them.
Online Tests. The whole purpose of taking online tests and quizzes is that they let you learn more about yourself and what kind of person you are. It can be personality quizzes where you answer questions about your behavior and habits, only to have results show what category of personality you belong to. Or there are tests that ask questions to narrow down the kind of career that you might go for. There are also fun tests to discover yourself such as “which Harry Potter character are you?” or “What Disney princess are you?”’.
These are examples of a few things that you can do on the internet and they are not limited to just these activities. Go ahead and explore what else you can learn on the internet that would be worth your time and productivity.
