Summary
Brilliant logoBrilliant

With their library of bite-sized casual learning courses for all kinds of STEM topics, Brilliant fills an interesting niche in the online learning market. We like the amount of thought they have put into their courses, in order to make it fun and interesting while teaching you fundamental concepts of science & technology. Overall, we recommend Brilliant for learners that want to get introduced to new concepts, and that want to learn for fun, rather than learning to achieve a concrete career goal.

Craftsy logoCraftsy

Craftsy has found an interesting niche, focusing their offering on arts & crafts. We like that their subscription plan is affordable, and they have a wide selection of courses, when it comes to the topics of arts & crafts. If you want to learn about different topics, Craftsy wouldn't be the right platform for you. We therefore recommend Craftsy to students that want to exclusively learn about arts & crafts, with a focused course offering.
