The Internet has made learning easier and more convenient, just as it has increased the world's access to passive-aggressive kitten videos and malevolent baby-genius blogs. Learn simply with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a yearlong online membership to Oasis Skills Building (a $50 value).
Oasis Skills Building plumps its site with dozens of online courses geared toward equipping students with software and people skills to enhance their resumes and advance their careers. A site membership grants users a year's worth of full access to an extensive library of courses, which include lessons in computer basics, Microsoft Office, and accounting software, as well as the human-relations arts. In the latter offerings, students can hone skills crucial to working in any office—including customer service, leadership, team building, and nondairy-creamer sharing. Would-be cubicle mavens can also pursue instruction in certain targeted fields, such as office administration, management, and sales. Because classes are online and preset, mouse clickers can take them at any time of day or night from the comfort of their own homes, historic lighthouses, or human-size terrariums.
