Summary
DataCamp logoDataCamp

DataCamp has a very clear focus on teaching data skills, which we really like. Through this focus, they can offer specialized tools, like their browser workspaces, graded certifications and their data science job board. Also of this makes DataCamp a great platform for going from absolutely no data skills to a level where you might be able to get your first job in the industry. To conclude, we can wholeheartedly recommend DataCamp to students looking to get started with data science and AI skills.

Skillshare logoSkillshare

Skillshare offers a large catalog of courses on both career and hobby-related topics. We particularly like that you can get access to every course on the platform with just one, affordable subscription. You can also book one-on-one sessions with instructors, which is a bit pricey, but a super unique offering that no other online learning platform currently offers. We can therefore recommend Skillshare to anyone trying to learn digital & creative skills, especially if a subscription sounds better than buying individual courses.
