E-learning provides a safe route to education and personal and professional development during the pandemic, and the Beverly Hills Public Library has residents covered for free.
Through electronic services, the library offers thousands of courses through many online learning platforms, meeting the needs of users at every age.
Among the thousands of courses, visitors will find reading strategy courses for little ones, creative classes and homework help for youth and teens, personal development for adults, entrepreneurial courses like designing effective websites, creating mobile apps with HTML5 and coding bootcamp, Python programming and more.
Next Beverly Hills, in partnership with the Beverly Hills Public Library, has been offering its members the Coding Bootcamp through the library’s Gale e-learning services.
“I never expected such mass participation during the pilot ranging from high schoolers all the way up to individuals in their 70s,” said Bradley Cook, chair of the Next Beverly Hills Coding Bootcamp. “While individuals are at home, this has been an opportunity to learn new skills that they may not have had time for previously.”
In the Coding Bootcamp Class, or Python 3.0 Programming, students learn the coding language Python-3 during a six-week beginner course taught online by a professor who holds a Ph.D. in computer science and is a current faculty at the University of Tennessee. Many Next members have taken this course, and Next continues to encourage professional development through courses like these.
“We want people to know how valuable and accessible the free, online courses are through the library’s e-learning, and the amazing instruction that is provided,” Cook said.
Other e-learning topics include accounting and finance, design and composition, writing and publishing, law and legal, and more.
