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.

Educative logoEducative

Educative focuses on teaching tech skills to its students. We like that in addition to their courses, they provide tools like their CloudLabs, which allow students to learn about cloud infrastructure, without having to create their own cloud accounts. Another thing that makes their platform unique is their focus on text over video. This means, if you prefer reading to watching videos, and you want to learn new tech skills, Educative might be right for you.
