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.

DataCamp logoDataCamp

DataCamp has a very clear focus on teaching data skills, which we really like. Through this focus, they can offer specialized tools, like their browser workspaces, graded certifications and their data science job board. Also of this makes DataCamp a great platform for going from absolutely no data skills to a level where you might be able to get your first job in the industry. To conclude, we can wholeheartedly recommend DataCamp to students looking to get started with data science and AI skills.
