National Online Learning Day – September 15, 2023


September 15, 2023


Loni Shaw


Did you know there that September 15th each year is observed as National Online Learning Day?  That’s Right!!  This is a day for raising awareness of all of the resources, classes and learning opportunities that are available online.  It is also a day to help people, both young or old, invest time in their own growth and education.

There are so many benefits to online learning.  Flexibility, lower cost, self-pacing and learning self-motivation are just a few.  During the Global Covid-19 Pandemic, more and more schools were forced to close.  Therefore, so many schools used online learning opportunities to help out during these difficult times.

And at Boo-Shaw Bakery, we like to point out that learning at home and/or online is a great way to enjoy some Boo-Shaw Bakery cookies while enhancing your knowledge!  😉 😉 😉 While researching this holiday, Boo-Shaw Bakery found some great online learning resources provided by and we thought we’d share them to help everyone get started with online learning.  Remember, do your research and find some classes / topics that work for you!
