Summary
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.

LinkedIn Learning logoLinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is one of the largest online learning platforms, which can offer a lot of benefits that we like through the direct integration into the LinkedIn platform, like LinkedIn Premium access, as well as the direct integration of certificates from LinkedIn Learning into your LinkedIn profile. The instructors on LinkedIn Learning are highly qualified, and the courses cover all relevant career-focussed skills, which is why we can particularly recommend LinkedIn Learning for young professionals trying to upskill.
