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.

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.
