E-learning Sites

Katy Dickinson teaching in Gaza City 2016

Thanks to Lisa Ramirez (TechWomen Mentor and Director at Juniper Networks), for her recommendations for some of the best E-learning sites available.  These sites do not care where you are, so technical professionals in Yemen, Libya, Gaza and other locations limited by conflict or political circumstances who have web access, time and a desire to learn can improve their knowledge despite travel restrictions. This is a work-in-progress and more information is welcome: Please send suggestions! Updated 6 October 2016
