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.

MasterClass logoMasterClass

MasterClass has amongst the highest production quality of all online learning platforms. We like their concept of creating courses with world-renowned experts in their respective fields and combining this with awesome production value. With this high quality bar, it's clear why MasterClass doesn't have the most extensive course catalog. They focus on quality over quantity and offer courses on all kinds of topics, both career-related and recreational. Overall, we recommend MasterClass for students that enjoy watching courses from their favorite athletes, musicians and chefs and that appreciate the amount of effort MasterClass puts into producing these classes. Students looking for courses to advance their career might find a better offering elsewhere.
