What You Can Learn From YouTube
Do you know you can learn absolutely anything on YouTube? From website designing to all sorts of life hacks can be learnt from the platform.
YouTube is currently the hub of e-learning, where anyone can learn anything. There is no limitation of what you can learn, and guess what? It only costs data. Also, YouTube has created an avenue when people can pass on their knowledge and get paid based on the views they amass.

Make it habitual to learn something new from YouTube. Some of the little things I see people profusely beg others to do for them and they pay for it, they can learn it themselves for free.
How to Learn on YouTube
Just like any school, you need dedication and interest to learn from YouTube. With zeal and interest, you can learn whatever you desire.
