Summary
Dataquest logoDataquest

With their focus on data skills, Dataquest is a great platform for students looking to learn about data science, and data engineering. They offer a variety of courses, combined with practice projects that help beginners navigate the data science world, which is why we recommend Dataquest for beginners in particular.

FutureLearn logoFutureLearn

FutureLearn is one of the few online learning platforms that offer full online degrees. We also like that you can access a lot of their regular courses for free for a limited amount of time, with the upgrade to the paid course being offered as an optional add-on. In contrast to some other similar companies, their offering is also a lot more streamlined and easier to understand, which we think is another benefit of FutureLearn. That said, their catalog isn't as big as that of some of their competitors, which means that you might not find the course you're looking for, especially if it's a bit more niche. Overall, we can recommend FutureLearn for students that want to take full online degrees, as well as students that want to learn with courses from universities, instead of courses from individual instructors.
