The web is a powerful resource that can easily help you learn new skills. You just have to know where to look. Sure, you can use Google, Yahoo, or Bing to search for sites where you can learn new skills, but I figured I’d save you some time.


Here are the top 40 sites I have personally used over the last few years when I want to learn something new.

1. Hack a Day - Hack a Day serves up fresh hacks (short tutorials) every day from around the web and one in-depth ‘How-To hack’ guide each week.

9. Instructables - Similar to MAKE, Instructables is a web-based documentation platform where passionate people share what they do and how they do it, and learn from and collaborate with others as the tackle new projects and learn new skills.

10. Merriam-Webster Online - In this digital age, your ability to communicate with written English is paramount skill. And M-W.com is the perfect resource to improve your English now.

11. Lumosity - Learn to improve your memory by playing a series of fun and educational brain training games.

Instructables has been a favorite of mine for a while now. Khan looks very interesting. I might use that to learn a programming language next year.
