Skills makes it easy to set your own personal learning goals—visible only to you—right from your home page. During the week, you can check your progress towards your goal, and adjust it at any time.
So you just finished an awesome course. Now what? Skills makes it easy to find the content you need to drive your career goals.
Skills offers content in multiple formats to maximize your Year Up experience:
- Video courses: Like to learn at your own pace? Tools like bookmarks, discussion boards, exercise files, notes, and learning checks can help you learn quickly, retain knowledge, and measure your new skills.
- Interactive courses: Want to try out your new skills? Practice as you learn with hands-on coding challenges and guided feedback.
- Projects: Up for a challenge? Projects are for the student who’s ready to put their new skills to the test, providing feedback during real-life coding tasks.
So now you've found some killer content to support your tech goals. You can create your own channels to organize and prioritize your learning experience. We talked about channels in the previous article, but now let’s take it a step further.
There's no wrong way to organize your channels. Choose the way that works best for you. Many like to create a channel for each skill they want to master. Others like to create a channel to support each individual goal.
Once you've got content in your channels, you can drag and drop any item up or down to your desired location. You can add sections to your channel for more custom organization of your content (think sub-skills or sub-goals). And you can collapse or expand channels to help you focus on the task at hand.
You can create your own channels, share them with others, and use channels shared with you by your instructor or other students. You have control over your Year Up experience, and channels help you skill up faster.
