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.

Skillshare logoSkillshare

Skillshare offers a large catalog of courses on both career and hobby-related topics. We particularly like that you can get access to every course on the platform with just one, affordable subscription. You can also book one-on-one sessions with instructors, which is a bit pricey, but a super unique offering that no other online learning platform currently offers. We can therefore recommend Skillshare to anyone trying to learn digital & creative skills, especially if a subscription sounds better than buying individual courses.
