There are more ways to learn new skills online now than ever before. You can take free courses at Harvard or guitar lessons with Fender, but why not go for something a bit more magical? Yes, Harry Potter fans, it's time to enroll in Hogwarts.

Hogwarts is Here is the online magical school aspiring wizards have been waiting for. In fact, it's not only for Harry Potter fans, but it's run by fans too.

The website, launched in 2014, was created by fans of the book and movie series to fill the gap between fantasy and reality, bringing all the Hogwarts classes to life.

On the website, Potter fans can take part in courses like Astronomy, Charms, Herbology, Defense Against the Dark Arts, History of Magic, Potions, and Transfiguration. And these class titles aren't just for play. Each course comes with an in-depth syllabus, lesson plans, and even homework.

For example, in the History of Magic course, students take nine lessons: Intro to History of Magic; Magical Beginnings; The Americas; Asia Part I - Early Civilizations; Asia Part II - Steppes and China; Africa; Europe; Australia; and Magic and Religion. Along the way, there are quizzes, papers, assignments, and even a final exam.

Though the classes are fun that's not the only thing fans can take part in on the website. Hogwarts Is Here also offers forums for fans to discuss their own theories, groups and role-play sessions, a newsroom for Harry Potter stories, and more.

Looking for more Harry Potter experiences? There's also the website Wizarding World Digital, which has even more activities and resources for fans. Long story short, it looks like we found your weekend plans.
