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.

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.
