Summary
CreativeLive logoCreativeLive

CreativeLive has a wide variety of creative classes in their catalog. We particularly like that their subscription plan is rather cheap and the production value of their courses is pretty high. Compared to other platforms with similar offerings however, we feel like CreativeLive's catalog is a bit smaller, and their user interface could use some updates. Overall, CreativeLive is a good platform for students that want to learn new creative skills.

GetSmarter logoGetSmarter

getsmarter offers a selection of high quality courses, in collaboration with some of the most prestigious universities worldwide. We particularly like the impressive roster of partners they work with. If you want to take their courses, you shouldn't be on a tight budget though, since the prices are fairly steep, which is understandable when you look at their partner universities, but nevertheless might be unaffordable for many. We therefore recommend getsmarter to professionals that want to learn new skills, and that have the disposable budget to afford their courses.
