Learn computer skills at home or in the café, Which one is best?


Traditionally people choose to visit the cafe or computer center for learning computers and various other technical skills. But from last 5 to 7 years people are more interested to learn computer at their home by doing online courses. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages and we will find out the best method to choose to learn computers and technical skills in this article.

Who can learn computer, internet, programming, and various other technical skills at home? And how they can learn?

  • If you have the basic knowledge of computers and the internet then you can do any kind of online degree and online computer course at home.
  • Learning computers through the internet, online courses, videos, and books provide you the flexibility to choose your hours, but at the same time, you have to learn daily. Else without daily disciplined learning, it’s tough to make progress.
  • Learning at home is not that much difficult and challenging if you know how you can become skilled and knowledgeable about computers/the internet. For example, you have to practice daily, you have to create samples, and you have to test yourself in online public forums. For example, if you’re learning graphics designing at home you have to showcase your designs on social media, to get feedback.
  • You must have goals for learning. I mean what you want to learn or what you want to accomplish after learning computer. If you’re clear about it, then it’s very easy for you.
  • Once you are clear about your learning goals, you must have to create a syllabus to do just that. For example, if you want to do blogging or want to promote your offline business online then you have to create the following kind of syllabus:
  1. Basics of computer fundamentals, how it works, and what it can do for your career, life, and business.
  2. Basic document editing and data management.
  3. Online marketing etc.

While many online courses provide you complete syllabus to learn to promote your business, you also must know that what are the ways to accomplish your goals.

  • You have to research the things, that you have to learn to achieve your goals by learning computers and the internet such as the blog, videos, courses, degree programs, and accredited colleges. And it’s also helpful to search and find out the sources who are providing those things.
  • While there are many YouTube channels that will help you to improve your computer skills, at the same time, they start with random topics. You need a stepwise syllabus to follow. And for that, it’s important to find out good channels or you can choose the online course.

Why cafes and offline computer institutes are more effective for learning the basics of a computer?

While everything is online from learning to earning, it’s not practical truth. Learning outside the home has various personal branding, network, and health benefits along with computer skills. So let’s talk about learning offline in a café or computer institute, the basics of computers:

  • A cafe or offline computer institute provides you complete syllabus based on your goals. If you want to learn the basics of the computer then they have 2-3 months of computer courses. If you want to learn Microsoft Office or the basics of document writing and editing + typing then they have the course. You can choose based on your interest.
  • An offline institute or cafe instructor is always there to help you with confusion and complexity.

If you find a good instructor, he/she will teach you through practical exercises and tools.

  • Learning the computer through computer institutes/cafes helps to build a personal network that you can’t build if you’re doing it online or from home.
  • Learning in a group has other advantages, such as learning from the other student’s questions or asking in real-time from the instructor.
  • Offline computer institute is criticized for higher time consumption and fixed schedule. But if you learn online or from home, then the internet also wastes your time. To find one right resource you have to visit 10+ websites, and sometimes you have to follow the notification.
  • You can’t become skilled through urgency and robotics notifications. You need a pace and mental environment to study effectively. If you disagree with me, then think, how many online learning and education resources are available these days. Billions of people are learning and becoming skilled to work online or starting online businesses.

But if everyone is skilled and educated then why you’re seeing unemployment and a lack of innovation and entrepreneurship?

It’s because, you can learn anything, you can become skilled and certified in anything from any online or offline source, but until you don’t find a mentor or inspiration to think and solve problems, you can’t make an impact. That’s why good and practical teachers are important.

So if you look at both ways, you can select or plan to learn. You combine both online and cafe classes for more deep learning.  I have combined both offline and online learning methods and a path to follow for beginners, here you can learn the: Best ways to learn computer skills quickly and accurately
