This Black Friday, one thing that will be heavily discounted isn't a physical product. Instead, you can give or get educational courses and start on your New Year's learning resolutions early.

Now through November 25, online learning platform Udemy will be slashing prices on all its courses. And if you buy one on Black Friday (November 22 - November 23), you'll also get one free on Cyber Monday (November 26 - November 27).

You can get over 55,000 courses on the site for only $10 (about R140). You'll get full lifetime access to the course, so you can always go back and reference specific lessons if you need to. This deal ends November 25 at just before 9AM (SA time) on Saturday. 

For your free course, just make sure to redeem the credit before 9:30AM (SAST) on Wednesday, November 28, otherwise you'll lose it.
