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.

Maven logoMaven

With their approach of cohort-based courses, Maven is trying to shake up the digital education market. We like that they back their approach on research about effective learning, trying to create a learning experience that produces the best outcomes for students. Their courses are also typically taught by experienced practitioners, ensuring a high course quality. Overall, we recommend Maven for professionals that want to step up their game on a specific topic, if budget isn't the biggest concern. On Maven, you pay a little bit extra for the convenience of direct access to your instructors and a more effective, cohort-based experience. Students with limited budget might be better off going with other platforms.
