Education plays a paramount role in the modern technological world. Education is a very vital tool that is used in the whole world to succeed
Countries where education is given top priorities are the ones ruling the world and generating lot of revenues. e.g Germany- Today is the biggest car maker in the world. They have brands like Audi, Mercedes, Volkswagen etc. It has only happened because they have provided good platform to their countrymen. United States- This country does not need any introduction. 100% of its population is highly educated and therefore, skilled. It has become the hub of education, sports and almost everything. Some of the most popular companies like Google, Cisco, Microsoft , AT&T etc have evolved in USA itself.
Prosperity of a nation is entirely based upon the quality of its citizens. So, It is evident that education play a key role. It helps you becoming self-dependent and financially independent. Education provides us knowledge and intellect which when used with right action can take us to places and the road to success. Here are some of the famous quotes about education.

Being educated and earning a professional degree prepares you to be a part in reputed organizations, companies or institutions. For determining what is good or what is bad for you, education will help you. Now a days technology plays a important role in continuing the communication of education through known and unknown persons.
Now, the question arises is how one can get educated with the help of technology. There are lot of ways or mediums such as Going to School, Colleges, Training Institutes. However, the best and most popular ways nowadays is Online Education. “Online” is the term being used when you connect to Internet. You just need a workstation or Mobile ( everybody has it I guess :-), a working Internet. 90% of the education is free e.g. you can access Google or Yahoo or Youtube to get information on any topic of your choice.
However, To be able to get Quality education and content, you need to search for certain websites which has structured, self-paced courses. I’ve personally referred to many such sites such as Udemy, Coursera , Lynda etc. All of these sites have equally good courses by top instructors around the globe. Coursera is very costly because Instructors are hired from Top Univerisities of the World Like Harvard, Leeds, IIT Kanpur etc. Lynda, is subscription based website where in you have to pay monthly or annually. The Best I found in the Budget is Udemy.com.
There are more than 60,000 courses on Udemy spanning across 160 plus topics. Udemy is the biggest community of online learners with 15 million plus people in 208 countries have enrolled to learn with them. So far they have had 19,000 plus instructors teaching in 59 different languages.
Learning on Udemy you don’t need a subscription to access a course you like. So you don’t have to worry about paying yearly (or monthly) fees. Also, all the courses are reviewed, which is a good way to know which course to purchase.
FREE and Paid Courses
There are two types of courses offered in Udemy- Free and Paid. Paid Courses are generally ranging of 20–200$ with average price of 100$. However, you can get discount upto 95% from their Promotional offers.
