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.

Pluralsight logoPluralsight

Pluralsight is one of the online learning platform with a clear focus on helping companies upskill their employees with tech skills. While they do offer their course catalog to consumers as well, many of their main strengths come into play with enterprise customers. We particularly like their extensive library of courses, with a lot of them focussing on very specific technical topics that other platforms might not even have resources for. That means that Pluralsight is a great platform for companies looking to upskill employees and more advanced techies trying to learn new skills. As a beginner, you might be a bit overwhelmed on Pluralsight.
