Summary
Coursera logoCoursera

Coursera offers a great range of online learning products, which means that almost anyone can find a fitting course on their platform. We particularly like the huge catalog of free courses they offer, where you only need to pay if you want the optional certification. They also offer full degrees, which makes them one of only a few providers that offer Bachelor's and Master’s degrees online. While their overall offering might be a bit confusing sometimes, we can fully recommend Coursera for all students looking to obtain career-relevant skills.

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.
