Most of the courses are taught by Salman Khan, who was recognized by Bill Gates as one of his favorite teachers online. This is why hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of students around the world can thank Khan Academy for getting them through high school and college.

Whether you’re driving to work, doing the laundry, or riding the metro, Audible will read your book for you without any hassle. If you’re especially keen on going through more books faster, then you can increase the speed of the books being read to you by 1.5x or even 2x.

Similar to Go High Brow, OneMonth offers courses on programming, business, and marketing, except instead of 5 minutes a day, OneMonth helps you learn the skill in one month. A slightly different approach, but a great tool for busy individuals nonetheless!

4. Duolingo

Skills: Foreign languages

Duolingo brings a unique, gamified approach to learning a language. By allowing you to upgrade to new levels and rewarding you with points, it’s a fun way to develop your foreign language skills. It’s worth noting that Duolingo has its limitations, since it can’t help you with your speaking skills. Nevertheless, it’s a great way to dip your feet into the pool if you’re just getting started with learning a new language.
