Well, it happened: you’re stuck inside because of the COVID-19 pandemic that is raging just outside of your door. If you’re lucky, you’re now doing your job or studying from home. If not, here is how not to die from boredom and even to use the quarantine time to your advantage:

ONLINE LEARNING

Coursera for Campus will be available globally at no cost to any university impacted by COVID-19. To help minimize the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on students, the most famous educational platform opened on the quarantine period 3800 courses in 400 specialties. It is free only for university students. 

If you are not a student but couldn’t find time for additional education for a long time, now is the time to do it! There are always plenty of free courses on Coursera and Google Digital Workshop. You can listen to inspirational lectures from speakers from around the world on Tedx Talks.

CULTURE

Always wanted to visit the famous Vienna Opera House? No problem. The Vienna State Opera opens its archives for a live broadcast. Wiener Staatsoper daily broadcasts free recordings of previous performances of opera and ballet. 

The Berlin Philharmonic can be watched online for free for 30 days. The Berlin Opera also broadcasts its performances.

Experience the best museums from all over the world in the comfort of your own home as museums offer virtual tours to replace a real visit.

The branding agency shishki.collective has launched the international online bar Stay The Fuck Home Bar. It was opened in support of the #StayTheFuckHome movement, which urges people around the world to stay home during the coronavirus epidemic. In Stay The Fuck Home Bar, you can do everything the same as in any video chat or bar: drink, chat, make toasts, etc.

Well, of course, it’s time to sign up for Netflix or Amazon. 

There’s never been a better time to get into video games, make puzzles and read a good book. Life doesn’t stop and neither should you!
