This lockdown period, avoid falling into a ‘Learning Trap’
| Education Jagat - 16 May 2020

In this Covid-19 lockdown period, there has been a tsunami of people wanting to opt for online courses/certifications through various platforms like Coursera, Edx, UpGrad, LinkedIn Learning, etc. to ‘upgrade’ their skills. This is the period in which the “Learn, Un-Learn, Re-Learn” phenomenon has been on the rise for good. Platforms like above which are offering free courses or discounted courses/certifications, so that maximum professionals & students can take benefit and skill or re-skill themselves for better growth opportunities, internally as well as externally.
 When almost everyone is loving this period in a way, in which they can learn new skills, re-learn skills or maybe un-learn too, as an Educationist, Career Coach & NLP Master Practitioner, I would like to give professionals & students a piece of advice (actually a word of caution) - Avoid falling into a Learning Trap!
  It is but natural that professionals (including freshers and about-to graduate students) can get excited & overwhelmed (highly at times) about the e-learning options available and can get inclined to enroll for online courses/certifications for gaining skills as much as possible.- But they should not do this in haste.
  Just as learning is important, one must also understand that there is no use of ‘overlearning’ and ‘varied learning’. Cautious choice of online courses/certifications is important.
