While searching for techniques on how to improve my site the other day, I stumbled upon a free training website by Google called - Google Digital Garage.
Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I decided to log in and see if there was anything of value, it’s free after all right!…
The site offers the kind of training I wish I had available when I first started out on the web, and it’s well laid out compared to other online training courses I have used - nice clean material design. There’s a web app version too so you can drop it on your phone/tablet for a seamless experience on the go.
In total there were 89 lessons covering everything from content selection (website, social, app and video) to marketing and analytics, including global considerations. That’s a lot of free content!
If you’re a seasoned web developer you might find it all a little basic but that doesn’t stop you challenging yourself to the quizzes and getting a certificate to show you still have what it takes (Great for killing time on the train).
If on the other hand you are looking to set up a new site and promote it on the web this course is definitely worth a look.
