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.

Udemy logoUdemy

Udemy is one of the most well-known online course marketplaces, and for a good reason. With their massive course catalog and offerings in many of the world's most spoken languages, chances are that you will find what you're looking for on Udemy. Even though nearly anyone can start uploading their courses to Udemy, the review system makes allows you to spot great courses super easily. We particularly like the great value that Udemy courses provide, giving you the best bang for your buck and making it the #1 most popular online learning platform worldwide.
