Hello and welcome to 42courses.

Most e-learning is like eating broccoli – you know it’s good for you, but it’s not that enjoyable.

So we’ve built a platform to change that and make learning something that you can really enjoy.

We focus on the key skills needed in todays fast paced increasingly automated world, essentially we look for subjects you should have been taught at school but probably weren’t.

Each short course plays like a game, mixing videos, images, links and stories to create a compelling way to learn. Lessons are split into short chunks, so you can pick up your learning whenever and wherever it suits you!

As you progress you’ll earn points, climb leaderboards, and get inspiration and ideas from other learners from around the world. You’ll even get help and feedback from tutors whenever you need it!

We team up with real world business leaders to deliver the practical skills that make you more successful. It’s like taking an internship - fast, fun, practical, but without the coffee-making.

When you pass you’ll get a signed and dated certification that you can easily add to LinkedIn, print out, or share online to show how marvellous you are.

Enjoy the learning,

Chris & the 42courses team
