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.

CreativeLive logoCreativeLive

CreativeLive has a wide variety of creative classes in their catalog. We particularly like that their subscription plan is rather cheap and the production value of their courses is pretty high. Compared to other platforms with similar offerings however, we feel like CreativeLive's catalog is a bit smaller, and their user interface could use some updates. Overall, CreativeLive is a good platform for students that want to learn new creative skills.
